In this advanced training, Dennis Leri introduces and makes applicable the notion of a primitive. You will learn how movement primitives are found at all levels of action and are the basis for human movement. Primitives can be used to guide us in knowing how to organize our actions, our thinking, and our intentions. Their proper use can make FI® lessons more meaningful and effective.
The workshop includes:
-Three ATM® lessons
-Six FI® demonstrations
