I can just tell that 2009-2010 is going to be an amazing year when it comes to my education.
Nope, I'm not going to Graduate School.
I am getting to work with TWO AMAZING MENTORS.
Aaron Brooks and David Vendetti.
Aaron is an exercise physiologist as well as a biomechanist and owner of Perfect Postures.
David is a yoga instructor as well as a structural integration bodyworker as well as co-owner of SOBOYO.
It started off a year and a half ago when I started taking classes at South Boston Yoga and I would leave feeling lighter. Not lighter as in less stressed (that's a given), but lighter in my stride. I began paying careful attention to what exactly David was having us do in class in order to produce the end result that I loved so much. I soon realized that the secret was in the SEQUENCING.
Despite all the wonderful progress I had made with my kettlebell and yoga programs, I still had this nagging internal hip pain that that I just couldn't shake. This is when Aaron Brooks of Perfect Postures came into my life.
Aaron Brooks completed a postural assessment and then assigned me a SPECIFICALLY SEQUENCED series of corrective exercises according to his evaluation. Within my first session the pain was gone and my body felt AMAZING. With his programs I was able to re-teach my CNS and muscles to communicate properly and I was able to take my "rehab" into my own hands.
Yes I could go on and on about these two gentlemen but I'll save this for another post.
My point is that sequencing is KEY, it's all about empowering your clients by providing them with the tools necessary to live pain free. I love the fact that if you do the exercises as prescribed you will feel better, and if you don't you have no one to blame but yourself!
