Core Connections

Online February 6, 2014

Exploring the Core's Developmental Roots

Workshop Description:

Core is a popular topic among therapists, Pilates and yoga instructors, and exercise enthusiasts; however, it is often poorly defined. This course will provide a clear description of the core based on current research and discuss the neurophysiological rationale for evaluating core development and function in individuals with sensory processing difficulties.  Core function will be explored from its developmental roots in the unfolding of the primary movement patterns (innate reflex development). Two key patterns (Moro and Tonic Labyrinthine) and their connections to core development and self-regulation will be discussed. All lectures will come to life through clinical videos of both assessment and treatment strategies.

The online format of this workshop will consist of live video feed of the presenters, shared power point and video.  Participants will be able to ask questions or make comments verbally via microphone (if your computer allows) or typed into a chat feature.
