On Sunday, May 6, Maya Whole Health Studio presents SmartCore Training with Staffan Elgelid. This workshop is ideal for anyone who teaches others how to engage their cores: physical therapists, Pilates teachers, personal trainers, yoga teachers and coaches.
Learn the advanced core strengthening sequence developed by Dr. Elgelid, which is effective in keeping the low back safe while engaged in activities from household chores to sports. SmartCore strengthens the lower and upper core in the positions where the body is most vulnerable to injury, reducing injury rates and improving performance better than traditional core exercise.
Staffan Elgelid, PT, Ph.D., CFT, Associate Professor of Physical Therapy at Nazareth College of Rochester, takes you through the cutting edge movements for smart core training that allow you to experience different movement positions of the pelvis and lumbar spine which combine to train the body and the mind to let go of ineffective movement patterns.
A physical therapist for over 20 years, Dr. Elgelid is a native of Sweden and graduate of the University of Central Arkansas. He has owned his own clinics, and has presented at conferences on a wide variety of topics such as Guided Imagery, Healthy Aging, Mentoring, Awareness, Core Strengthening and Feldenkrais, both in the U.S. and in Europe. An Advisory Board member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists, Dr. Elgelid currently serves as the North American Representative for the International Feldenkrais Federation, an organization dedicated to the Feldenkrais Method, a way to improve awareness through movement.Join Dr. Elgelid for SmartCore Training, Sunday May 6 from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm On and before April 15: $110 After April 15: $125
