Description

These comprehensive movement sequences for the Balance Board, BOSU, and Rocker Reformer inform the somatosensory, visual, and vestibular senses. They are suitable for developing improved balance, proprioception, and vestibular function.

Session 1 (45 minutes) and Session 2 (49 minutes) provide detailed progressions on the Rocker Reformer appropriate for all levels of clients. The analogous sequences in Session 3 (39 minutes) using only the BOSU demonstrate that this easily accessible piece can substitute for some aspects of the Rocker Reformer. Session 4 (30 minutes) uses the Balance Board to continue detailed progress of balance and vestibular training effective for home practice. Augment your understanding of the vestibular system by reading the downloadable PDF packet and by studying the references provided at the end of the workshop.

Although this workshop provides the most comprehensive resource available on the Rocker Reformer, it also demonstrates that informed use of a BOSU or Balance Board can provide effective balance training and vestibular system improvement.

Test

The rocking reformer repertoire is just amazing. My clients love it and is a wonderful addition to my studio. I loved Elizabeths way of presenting and her demo's were impressive - many of the exercises are much more difficult than she made them look...
