What is the Axis Syllabus?
The Axis Syllabus is a compendium or encyclopedia of information relevant to the training, preparation, and performance of the moving human body. The Axis Syllabus refers to physics, anatomy, and relevant scientific data on flexibility, strength, alignment, injuries, and movement practices. Teachers of the Axis Syllabus use these references to inform movement choices to explore the what, where, and, how of efficiency and safe risk-taking, and common-sense applications of principles that apply to every-life activities as well, such as climbing, horseback riding, construction work, sports, dance, running, etc. Those that want to be involved in the Axis Syllabus form an international community through the ASRM (The Axis Syllabus Research Meshwork) a dynamic and interactive forum of teachers, researchers, and students. https://www.axissyllabusforum.org/
Together we will research flexibility, strength, alignment, anatomical attributes and ways of moving that are basically safe and energy-conservative. Kathleen will refer to physics, anatomy, and relevant scientific data from various fields.
Kathleen is inspired to teach this content as part of her ongoing studies and practice of:
Kathleen started on her journey of studying functional movement after her dance career left her with numerous chronic injuries. Through a slow process of learning to move functionally, she was able to regain her ability to dance. It is a joy to for her pass on a "user guide to the body" so that others can find their own way to arrive at outcomes that support their lives.
Those with disabilities are welcome and accommodations are offered. Let’s talk about what you may need to attend. Please contact her if you would like to discuss an accommodation request. firstname.lastname@example.org
