Course Objectives:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the basic principles of developmental kinesiology. 
  • Describe the relationship between development during the first year of life and dysfunction of the locomotor system in adulthood.
  • Discuss and demonstrate the basis of human movement: support, stepping forward, the biomechanics of motor function, the verticalization process & functional joint centration in postural development.
  • Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns.
  • Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional tests.
  • Integrate corrective exercises based on the DNS functional tests and developmental positions in supine,  prone, low kneeling, oblique sit, and quadruped global movements.
  • Demonstrate how DNS corrective exercises can be integrated with other exercise strategies.

*Space will be limited in order to provide an ideal ratio between instructor and students.
