Train the eye to recognising bony relationships and myofascial strain, as well as the body-wide effects of localised patterns. Based on seven clearly-defined body reading steps, you can define aims for posture-based training and put them into practice with the help of Slings exercises. Issues such as unbalanced tensegrity, dynamic stability and movement efficiency, as well as the influence of physical history, are discussed with many practical examples. Slings Body Reading & Movement Strategies makes the complexity of holistic posture evaluation accessible and practical for one-on-one and group lessons.
