  • Phase 4 Spine & Shoulders (2 days, 16 hrs total):

    This foundation class covers the history, philosophy and concepts of Ortho-Bionomy® and provides an overview of the basic release techniques for the spine and shoulders. Movements and positions of comfort are demonstrated to facilitate the release of muscular tension and overall stress by stimulating the inherent, self-corrective reflexes of the body which help the body create structural alignment and balance from within.

    Prerequisites: NONE

  • Phase 4 Extremities (2 days, 16 hrs total):

    This foundation class covers the history, philosophy and concepts of Ortho-Bionomy® and provides an overview of the basic release techniques for the joints of the extremities. Movements and positions of comfort are demonstrated to facilitate the release of muscular tension and overall stress by stimulating the inherent, self-corrective reflexes of the body which help the body create structural alignment and balance from within.

    • $370 regular/$320 early bird

    Prerequisites: NONE

  • Phase 4 Advanced Pelvis & Organs (2 days, 16 hrs total):

    This class expands from the basic release techniques to advanced considerations for working with the pelvis and organs, and finding more challenging positions of comfort to facilitate the release of muscular tension and overall stress by stimulating the inherent, self-corrective reflexes of the body which help the body create structural alignment and balance from within.

    • $370 regular/$320 early bird

    Prerequisites: Phase 4 or 5 or permission from the instructor.

  • Phase 4 Advanced Neck & Shoulder (1 day, 8 hrs total):

    This class expands from the basic release techniques to advanced considerations around working with the neck and shoulder, and the challenge to find movements and positions of comfort to facilitate release.

    • $185 regular/$160 early bird

    Prerequisites: Phase 4 or 5 or permission from the instructor.

  • Phase 4 Advanced Extremities (1 day, 8 hrs total):

    This class promotes a deeper understanding of physiological relationships in the extremities that often influence each other in a state of misunderstanding that creates injury. The class explores techniques and relationships that aid the Practitioner to resolve common and sometimes mystifying extremity injuries and post surgical recovery.

    • $185 regular/$160 early bird

    Prerequisites: NONE

  • Phase 4 Review (2 days, 16 hrs total):

    A thorough review of Phase 4 concepts and applications from basic to advanced.

    • $370 regular/$320 early bird

    Prerequisites: Any Phase 4 course.

  • Phase 5 (2 days, 16 hrs total):

    Phase Five moves to a more subtle level of awareness of the practice and principles of Ortho-Bionomy®. Phase Five techniques develop and increase the student’s understanding and proprioceptive sensitivity to the self-corrective movements initiated by the client. Through observation, following and supporting subtle movement patterns, muscular tension is released, range of motion is increased and pain is reduced. In Phase Five, students are encouraged to do less and let the client be the guide for his/her exploration of change.

    • $370 regular/$320 early bird

    Prerequisites: Any Phase 4 class or permission from the instructor.

  • Phase 6 (2 days, 16 hrs total):

    This class is teaches participants access and track sensation and energetic perception in themselves and in their clients, to learn how to make contact without necessarily engaging physically. Techniques will be presented that monitor and acknowledge the inter-relationship between energetic, emotional and physical levels, and that demonstrate how energetic shifts can affect changes in physical patterns.

    • $370 regular/$320 early bird

    Prerequisites: Phase 4 or Phase 5 or permission from the instructor.

  • Phase 5 & 6 Reflexes (1 day, 8 hrs total):

    A further integration, not a separate class, of Phase 5 & 6 concepts and the range of responses and positioning to enhance the reflexive release responses of the body.

    • $185 regular/$160 early bird

    Prerequisites: Any Phase 4 class or permission from the instructor.

  • Ethics & Emotions (2 days, 16 hrs total):

    Participants learn skills for addressing emotional responses that may arise during a session in an appropriate and professional manner. In addition, participants discuss the guidelines for professional conduct and review the Society of Ortho-Bionomy® International’s Code of Ethics.

    • $370 regular/$320 early bird

    Prerequisites: 8 units of Phase 4 classes.

  • Exploration of Movement Patterns (2 days, 16 hrs total):

    In Exploration of Movement participants learn to recognize and palpate patterns of joint and muscle movement to facilitate increased range of motion and promote a sense of well-being in the body. By gently exploring and supporting preferred patterns of movement or stillness, the client is invited to actively participate and recognize their patterns.

    • $370 regular/$320 early bird

    Prerequisites: NONE

  • Isometrics & Isotonics (2 days, 16 hrs total):

    Techniques for working with inefficient muscular tension patterns as well as underdeveloped muscle tone are presented and practiced. Through the use of restraining movement while the muscle is engaged, self-correcting reflexes are stimulated and habitual holding patterns can be released. Participants learn how the conscious use of obstacles can help promote change from rigid physical patterns to greater mobility and allows the client to actively participate in the session.

    • $370 regular/$320 early bird

    Prerequisites: Any Phase 4 class or permission from the instructor.

  • Posture & Post Techniques (2 days, 16 hrs total):

    I n this class participants learn to evaluate and address inefficient postural habits through accurate observation and simple exercises. Techniques to work with spinal curvatures and scoliosis are presented and practiced. Post techniques focus on assessing and releasing areas of tension as well as integrating the work done in a session. In addition, exercises are taught to facilitate the client’s ability to maintain balance through the neuro-muscular re-education of postural habits.

    • $370 regular/$320 early bird

    Prerequisites: Any Phase 4 class or permission from the instructor.

  • Chapman’s Reflexes (2 days, 16 hrs total):

    This class presents the Chapman’s Reflexes system of identifying and stimulating reflex points to facilitate lymphatic drainage and the balancing of the organs. The class also focuses on the relationship between the neurolymphatic reflexes and the endocrine system and its affect on structural balance as well as the individual’s physical and emotional well-being.
