MOVING ANATOMY: EXPLORING HIP AND SHOULDER FUNCTION

Join Jenn Pilotti of Be Well Personal Training for an in-depth, science-based approach to sensing, mobilizing, and strengthening the hip and shoulder joints. Saturday we will look at the hip, Sunday we will look at the shoulder, so come for one or both days at the Fit Haus!

SATURDAY: The Hip Joint - An Exploration of Connection, Strength, and Mobility
We will explore the anatomy of this area, its connections to the pelvis and lower leg, and its function during movement. Jenn will
break down regressions using sensing, feeling, and adjusting as the foundation before working into more dynamic strength and mobility exercises. 12pm-4pm.

SUNDAY: The Shoulder and Thorax - Developing Awareness and Strength
We will look at the connections between these two areas during movement. Anatomy, feeling how the area functions, and developing strength and mobility in the shoulder girdle will all be explored. 10am-2pm.

*Classes will incorporate lecture, partner work, and exercises. Please bring a journal to take notes, and dress in clothing you can move around in.*

Appropriate for students with chronic hip and/or shoulder issues looking to learn more, teachers and trainers who want to expand their knowledge and exercise repertoire, massage therapists who want to incorporate these techniques for their clients, and overall anatomy nerds.

Bridge Tips:
Make sure to keep your feet the width of your hip bones that stick out in the front of your pelvis, and your toes pointing straight forward. Draw your lower abdominals inward first and exhale to lift the pelvis. Keep pelvis and knees stable during the movement. Using a small ball, yoga block, or even a rolled up towel can help with the knee alignment. Make sure your shoulders, hips, and knees are in a straight line at the top of the movement so your ribs aren't poking out. Inhale at the top, then exhale to return to the mat with a controlled effort. You should feel some help from the hamstrings, inner thighs, and lower abs.

Squat Tips:
Start with feet slightly wider than the body, as well as slightly turned out. Draw your lower abdominals inward first and inhale to bend your knees. Aim knees for right over the big and second toe instead of allowing them to buckle in. Keep back in its neutral position, concentrating on hinging the torso at the hip joint. Gaze forward, instead of tilting chin too far up. Bend knees to where you able to without pain, and make sure to squeeze the glutes on the way back up during your exhale. You should feel some help from the hamstrings, lower abs, and quads.​
