Tonic Function Study Group:

In this three-part virtual workshop, we will explore Tonic Function, Hubert Godard’s wide-ranging perspective on movement, as it is applied to working with scoliosis. Tonic Function speaks to the role of gravity, perception, coordination, and expression in each individual’s embodied experience of living, and being. Too often, a scoliosis diagnosis defines a person’s embodiment, movement and sense of self.  In this workshop, we will explore perception, coordination, and movement as approaches for empowering our clients to find more joy, comfort, freedom, and agency – regardless if their spine is “curved” (or side-bent) and “rotated” or not. 

Each session includes embodiment practices that give you tools to use for yourself and your clients, as well as case studies, presentations, and discussion of concepts to help you ground theory in practice.

Other Programs

2023 Functional Anatomy Program at the Boston Conservatory Alexander Training Institute
Instead of “cutting us up” as the root of the word “anatomy” implies, this series of classes is an opportunity to understand anatomy from the perspective of a moving being. Taking an experiential approach, our journey will cover basic functions of balance, walking and breathing and the perspective of evolution, embryology and infant development.
