Description

Phillip Beach brings the theories and techniques from his groundbreaking book Muscles and Meridians to life in this amazing online workshop.

Archetypal Postures and the Erectorcises are key insights derived from my work in Contractile Fields. If you want to achieve your sporting ambitions or to age gracefully you need to include this concept in your life. Learning why and how to value floor based rest and erecting from the floor with grace and facility will be of lifelong value to you.

Objectives

Learn:

THE POWER OF FIELDS

Fields precede the formation of specific tissues in the embryo. Cells that specialise in contractility are carried from their source to their destination by fields that cooperatively generate shape and movement. The model is both succinct and aesthetic. It is relevant to both assessment and treatment.

LEARN TO RETUNE

The Contractile Field model helps us to understand movement. The opposite of movement is rest; one without the other is nonsensical. At rest we assume natural Archetypal Postures. The archetype is the original pattern or model from which copies are made; the best example or prototype of that class of objects. Archetype used in the context of human movement refers to postures that emerge from, and are embedded within, the interaction of many joints and many muscles. Losing access to our Archetypal Postures is a biomechanical peril. We sit on the floor in many postures that are our birthright, postures that our modern society neglects to value, instead preferring chairs and sofas. Rising from these Archetypal Postures to our full upright bipedal posture uses deeply embedded patterns of movement.

LEARN THE METHODS OF ERECTORCISE

To stand up from the floor is a movement sequence we mastered as children. Regrettably, in our busy lives this mastery has lessened over time until the normal act of rising from the floor becomes awkward and uncomfortable. Our musculoskeletal system needs the exercise of erecting to stay in good moving health. I call these the Erectorcises and the ability to relearn and reintroduce these exercises into everyday life provides some protection from degeneration and dis-ease.

Concepts & Techniques

  • Learn about a new, functional model of movement to assess clients from. The Contractile Fields
  • Learn the why of movement from an Embrylogical perspective
  • Learn to make sense of the scientific information and jargon so you and your clients understand and can implement it to functional movement.
  • Learn why and how to retune your body in Archetypal Postures of repose.
  • Learn why floor living is imperative to our health and longevity.
  • Learn the Erectorcise exercises that will change how you assess and treat the body.
  • Learn the most basic, modified Erectorcises to the most athletic and challenging.
