About This Workshop

In this workshop, we'll do a deep dive into how the brain gathers, integrates and learns MOVEMENT. Understanding the way the human brain processes inputs and stimuli will allow you to learn an invaluable communication tool with your central nervous system to avoid chronic pain and improve your performance.

We will also cover efficient training, pain and injury recovery, shifting your work from a biomechanical view to a neurological lens in order to better understand how our bodies function as a reflection of who we are and what we do.

Finally, you will learn tools to create your personal practice protocols that enhance your performance and training results. The aim of this workshop is to help you start on a journey to work smarter, not harder!
