Workshop will consist of theoretical and practical approach. In the theoretical part we will investigate different anatomical and physiological structures and functions of systems of the body. Different subjects raised daily in the theoretical part will serve as basis and guidelines for the practical part of workshop.  We will focus on  isolated segments of the musculoskeletal system and work on stabilization. In the later part of the training we will aim to research a movement that will connect longest possible functional myofascial chains and movements in three planes. We will use the principles and movement vocabulary of pilates, yoga and qigong.
This intensive  is designed for all those who want to strengthen their endurance, flexibility and balance, as well as wish to refine their understanding of movement and the body through applied anatomy.
