Hello Fellow Movers,
I completed the next level of training for ZHealth this past weekend. This work becomes more and more fulfilling,exciting, and compelling with each new training and certification. I am now a certified ZHealth Movement Integration Specialist as well as Re-education Specialist. Which you are saying,” Isn’t that what she already was doing?” Yes, that is what I have been doing but I am learning ever more specific skills to be able to communicate directly with the nervous system so that the changes and improvements we make at the studio will be more complete and reliable through time.
This training, called I-Phase, was focused on the visual and vestibular systems of the body and their relationship to motor control. We will be adding some new drills and tests in the coming weeks to your specific programs to help you integrate the three systems which help you to balance and move well. Along with the two previously mentioned there is of course the proprioceptive. It is so helpful and also fun and intriguing – a bit like being a detective and following clues to help our bodies function at their best and most enjoyable.
The next ZHealth training at the studio will be Mondays, January 16, 23, and 30 at 5 pm and Saturdays, March 3, 10, and 24 at 11:30 am. You can sign up with Lisa. While I am gone Lisa will keep the 1pm time on Wednesdays for practicing the Neural Warm-up I that we have been working on at that same time these past three weeks. It has been a wonderful class – excellent focus and subsequent change. If you would like to be able to learn these moves at home there is now a link on our website for ZHealth. The Quickstart helps mostly with the feet and hands while the Neural warm-up I teaches the entire workout that we learned in the class at the studio. Please join Lisa on those Wednesdays if you would like to practice with others who are also interested
