INSTRUCTOR: Dawn Lewis
This live course if for those who have taken the basic SMRT: Hips, Lower Back, & Abdomen video or live course.
Beginning with the posterior hip, we will add to our existing knowledge of muscle releases by delving into new, as well as two handed, releases for each muscle. We will continue our focus on the muscles through the lower back and the abdomen. As we go through each area of the body we will work on muscle binding and release the perimysium (the connective tissue surrounding each muscle bundle) and the endomysium (the connective tissue surrounding each muscle fiber) to reduce binding and allow optimal space within each muscle.
Changing our focus to the bones, we will work with the alignment of the individual bones before looking at broad skeletal patterns and how these affect tension patterns in the body. So, we will begin with the hip bones, lumbar spine, ribs, and femurs. Then we will move to how these bones relate to one another, alignment issues, and how to work with these patterns.
Next, we will change our focus and learn how to apply SMRT to directly target the fascia and tendons of the muscles in the hips, lower back, and abdomen, along with the ligaments of the sacroiliac joints, the iliofemoral joints, the intervertebral joints, the pubic symphysis, and the costovertebral joints.
Our fascia work will lead us to the abdomen, where we will add SMRT releases for the fascia of the abdominal cavity and the ligaments of the organs within the abdominal cavity.
Our final segment will begin with a couple of assessments and treatments, which will allow you to see the work in action and gain new information through each treatment.
