Level 1 San Diego 2012
These highly experiential and interactive seminars are designed to educate the health and exercise professional, with regularly up-dated evidence, on the epidemiology, pathology and sequelae of osteoporosis and to give the clinician practical information that they can use in their clinics the very next day. The Meeks Method, a comprehensive 12-point approach to the physical therapy management of patients with osteoporosis, is an evidence-based, SAFE and therapeutic movement program adaptable to all levels of care and all age groups. It has been shown to be useful in the care of patients with back pathologies such as spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and degenerative disc disease among others. Learning to move from the bones, with safety and therapeutic intent for the bones as the focus of movement, and with an optimally-aligned spine maintaining the natural spinal curves will change both the way YOU move and teach others to move.

These seminars are designed primarily for the physical therapist and physical therapist assistant; however, the information is also highly applicable to occupational therapists, certified occupational therapist assistants, other medical and degreed exercise professionals as well as Yoga and Pilates teachers. Level 3 is primarily for Physical Therapists. However, depending upon circumstances and the therapist's involvement with The Meeks Method, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, Occupational Therapist Assistants, Yoga and Pilates Teachers, and Exercise Professionals may be welcomed into the Level 3 course.

For a more complete experience of Yoga, these seminars include experiences of breath, meditation, introspection and sharing, chanting and dance.
