Foot / Ankle: The First and Only Movement Industry Specialization Focusing on the Biomechanics of the Foot and Ankle

The feet and ankles are the foundation of the body. How these parts move affects everything we do — whether we realize it or not. A movement professional’s understanding of the foot and ankle’s biomechanics impacts their ability to successfully treat and train people suffering from pain, dysfunction, and other injuries. However, most conventional movement education does not offer a comprehensive breakdown of the foot and ankle. Practitioners often have to make educated guesses without understanding the true nature of the dysfunction. This course fills in those gaps.

Functional Yoga System: The most comprehensive functional yoga training course, Functional Yoga System, is designed for the human body of today while celebrating the many ways traditional yoga gets it right.

Yoga is an ancient practice involving mental and physical components people have been enjoying for thousands of years. However, the human body has changed significantly since the physical practice of yoga was first developed. Gone are the days we foraged or hunted for survival. We sit more and move less. Our jobs, sports and hobbies often require repetitive motions which may lead to overuse injuries—factors that traditional yoga may not address.
