About this workshop

The lumbo-pelvic region is an area of concern for a large number of clients.

After reviewing the anatomy, biomechanics and optimal functioning of the lumbar spine, pelvis, hip and surrounding musculature, discuss some of the more common injuries and conditions that can occur and the resulting dysfunction. Then, learn a wide variety of exercise options utilizing the Reformer and many of its accessories and how to identify better movement patterns and muscular activation.
