Core Therapy: Balls, Bands & Balance - A Hands-On Workshop

Core Therapy: Balls, Bands & Balance Course Description:

This is a hands-on workshop focused on therapeutic exercises for the lower and upper quadrant incorporating multiplanar movement. The exercises will be based on principles of The Pilates Method, Yoga, Tai Chi and other exercise disciplines that have shown evidence-based medicine results. Participants will learn core strengthening based exercises to use for lower extremity diagnosis and rehabilitation. Over 50 exercises with modifications, variations, and progressions will be introduced.

Commonly used props in core strengthening programs include foam rollers, stability balls and Therabands. This course introduces the learner to all three pieces of equipment. Exercises taught can be used with patients that have a wide range of functional ability to improve strength and balance.

Participants will have the opportunity to practice all exercises along with modifications that are taught.

Participants are encouraged to bring a stability ball (55 cm, 65cm or 75 cm), foam roller (36”x 6” preferred), theraband, exercise mat or towel and dress comfortably. Participants do not have to exercise to receive credit for the course.
