General - The anatomy of the foot and what it reveals about your students

They call Dan "The Magic Man"  in Hastings where he works as an osteopath, anatomy teacher and movement specialist. After retiring from the dance troupe 'STOMP', he retrained in movement therapy and  gained a Masters in Osteopathy at the London School of Osteopathy. He is a Kinesiologist, a Hypnotherapist, an Anatomy teacher for Yoga Haven in London, and a practitioner of Functional Medicine, a system biology-based approach that identifies and addresses the root cause of disease. 


Students can be asymmetrically imbalanced in warrior 3, or struggle to rotate in one direction during twists. They might have constant niggles in their knee, back or even neck….and you think, ‘There is something going on here but what is it? This workshop will take you on a journey to understanding why. 


You’ll explore the biomechanics of the foot and learn skills to assess its functioning and work with it. You’ll  experience how a stiff big toe or old ankle sprain can affect  your  practice,  how gentle movement can  create space and ease throughout your whole kinetic chain. What

goes up must also come down so we will unwrap how injuries further up such as a broken rib, a concussion or an episiotomy tear  can then affect  how your feet make contact on earth.


This will be an integrative approach where you will learn about your body as well as how to work with others.
