How can the Reformer be used to address common foundational movement dysfunctions, and how can new training concepts and protocols be integrated with established exercise repertoires? In this key workshop, participants will review the multiplanar functional assessments that were explored extensively in Part A of this series, then discuss and experience Reformer-based variations and modifications to illicit positive responses by incorporating fascial concepts and modern training protocols. Beginning with a dynamic standing warm-up, a client’s mobility, stability, balance and sensory awareness can be assessed and Reformer-based sequences employed to deal with common dysfunctions and restore more efficient movement to everyday life.
- Review simple foundational movement assessments that will provide information on a client’s level of mobility, stability and sensory awareness
- Explore how to use the Reformer to address your findings
- Discover how the use of spring tension can improve movement patterns, muscle firing and body awareness
- Understand how new interdisciplinary concepts can be applied to a program on the Reformer
