The Inner Unit (30 min)
1. Role of the inner unit
Describe the link between TVA engagement and proximal stability. How would you cue this - flat back? "Neutral" curves?
2. Anatomy of the diaphragm
3. Alternative positions
If someone cannot sustain quadruped position due to wrist pain, what alternative position could you offer them where TVA engagement can still be trained?
4. Tension and strength
Describe the role of time under tension when building balanced strength.
5. Case Study
A student or colleague tells you about their achey lower back and asks you for advice. After recommending that they seek help from a medical professional, is there anything else you might suggest as possible additions to their movement practice? If this was someone you're taking on as a new client, where would you begin in your work with them?
