Short Course #1 for Knees: from Healing to Challenging (Short Course; level: Gentle)
This Short Course on Knee awareness neatly breaks down the information packets: alignment, creating space, activating the surrounding tissue: thighs, hips and calves. The Gentle Level Short Course does not go into the more challenging dynamic weight shifts, progressive loading of the knee, and internal and external rotations
This structure makes it easier to understand the breadth of actions in which the knee participates. The sessions of this Short Course also go from simple, to more complex. While the first couple of sessions can be used therapeutically even by those who are going through an aggravated knee condition (recent injury or pain), the latter sessions will progressively challenge both the load bearing capacity, and the range of movement, at the knee.
Part1: Knee Alignment
Part2: Creating ‘Space’ at the Knee Joint
