My thesis of coaching, training, and performance for all humans will always be evolving. With every passing seminar, and every social gathering post-seminar, I feel as if the question of “Will method (x) help my clients get closer towards a higher level of performance?”
In January 2017 I certified and completed my Postural Restoration Institute certification, deemed Postural Restoration Trained. In addition to certifying, I also helped out with approximately 6 courses this year for the Institute.
Want to know key lessons from assisting with the Postural Restoration Institute’s courses in 2017?
Ever have trouble “turning off” (or inhibiting) your back while laying on the ground?
One thing I’ve noticed quite a bit involves a pattern where the lumbar spine cannot get “unstuck” from an extension based pattern, and I believe there are several things that can play into this pattern:
- The need for some sort of sensory experience in which they understand what it means to not depend on their lumbar paraspinals (and use their abdominals, namely the obliques for ribcage orientation, and hamstrings for pelvis positioning)
- Some technique or sensory integration in which they can “let go” of that feeling for excessive extension through their lower back.
