Gait and it's common deviations-   20th July   5pm- 8pm with Shayne Smith 

The purpose of this workshop is to identify how a person's gait influences the approach we should take as BASI practitioners to design our sessions for maximum impact and benefit for a client.

3 Key Points of what you will take away from this workshop:

  1. A client's body will tell us everything, if we know what to look for.

  2. The relationship between the ‘Brain’ and the ‘Gait Cycle’`- what really happens and how it works

  3. How gait affects the whole body and reinforcing a need for the BASI Block system
