Understanding the Hips and Pelvis

Instructor: Shanon Leonard, RN June 23-24– 2018
12 CE hours, $225 by June 9, after $250  


Understanding the Hips and Pelvis

Take a deep and comprehensive journey into a fascinating area of the body. We will explore advanced bone, muscle and joint anatomy from a broader perspective - incorporating myofascial, neuromuscular, and other approaches.

This course begins by correcting common misconceptions about anatomical orientation and offers a new perspective transforming our understanding of pelvic and hip alignment. Students will gain an advanced understanding of pelvic and hip anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology - including all organs, joints, and muscle groups.

I'll teach using a different anatomical pelvis model as well as 3D graphics, charts, experiential exercises, table demonstrations and more. Students will gain increased knowledge of prevention and treatment strategies for many pelvic and hip challenges. Approximately half the class time will be devoted to table work where students will practice neuromuscular techniques that have proven effective for lessening pain and tension.
