This wonderful international CPD Forum for Movement and Manual Practitioners of every stripe will take place at Mardyke Arena, UCC, Cork, Ireland – February 22nd and 23rd, 2020

Presented by ICOM in Cork February 22nd and 23rd 2020 - two days of Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Three international experts on Biotensegrity and Fascia providing science based presentations and each offering practical hands-on masterclasses.

Forum Details

Three international experts on Biotensegrity and Fascia providing science based presentations. Osteopath Graham Scarr will deliver a wonderful presentation that makes sense of tensegrity and biotensegrity incorporating the beautiful images and models from his best selling book “Biotensegrity-The Structural Basis of Life”.

Joanne Avison and John Sharkey will provide practical masterclasses integrating manual and movement approaches informed by biotensegrity.

Overview

Do you ever wonder how to translate anatomy into practice? How to make sense of leading edge research on anatomical and biomechanical science, when you are actually with your clients? Whether it is one-to-one or group training you do, movement or manual sessions; there are essential keys and take-aways that this practical forum will give you to enhance your sessions and shift the classical understanding of anatomy and biomechanics. The weekend will animate how 21st century anatomy and Biotensegrity work in living bodies and animate the fascial matrix to optimise healthy movement in your clients.

John Sharkey, Clinical Anatomist, Neuromuscular Therapist, author and Exercise Physiologist brings leading-edge research to the participants, translated into application through the powerful logic of Biotensegrity in movement and manual therapies. Graham Scarr, Osteopath and author of “Biotensegrity: The Structure of Life”, brings his beautiful explanation of the theory behind Biotensegrity and Closed-kinematic Chains to life with his stunning models. Joanne Avison, Advanced Yoga Teacher & Therapist, Structural Integrator and author of YOGA: Fascia, Anatomy & Movement considers some of the simplest movements and manual interventions to include in classes and sessions, based upon the global to local view that biotensegrity provides.

Re-evaluate your practice with the most up-to-date research from recognised experts across all the disciplines.

Plan now to attend ICOM’s Biotensegrity and Fascia Science forum providing unique science based presentations to professionals working in the areas of Medicine, Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Neuromuscular Therapy, Chiropractic, FSM, Strength and Conditioning, Massage, Yoga, Pilates and Personal Training.

Our line up of recognised experts will share with you the latest fascia research and its implications in clinical practice for manual, movement and medical practitioners specific to biotensegrity and movement. Sharing the science of how Biotensegrity provides the logic behind their expertise at the leading edge of manual and movement science will inform and change your clinical practice.

Whether you are a movement, manual or medical practitioner, you should not miss learning this new logic behind the inner intelligence of our innate form and function. Participants will learn how the human body connects through the fabric of our fascia. You will discover a new means to see more clearly while making sense more easily, intervening less, yet achieving more for your clients and patients.

Biotensegrity provides a seamless transition from classical anatomy and biomechanics to the modern science of human movement and Anatomy for the 21st century.

Biotensegrity makes fundamental sense of so many questions arising in the anatomy classroom, the science laboratory, the therapy room, the athletic track or field and the gym. As this keystone concept is being realised, researched and widely accepted worldwide, it is becoming essential to know how it applies in practice.

Exploring the embryological origins of our fascia and our whole self. Join Clinical Anatomist John Sharkey for a fascinating presentation linking knowledge gained through Thiel soft-fixed cadaveric dissection studies that provide evidence of our new understanding of continuity, force transduction, physiology and motion.

John’s masterclass will include manual and movement modalities of European Neuromuscular Therapy.

Plasticity in the fascial system is the key to our shape shifting, shape changing body as it does daily from conception to death. From the moment of conceptus to the last breath taken we are moving or at least something is moving. We work to keep still and we work to move. Appropriate movement provides the body with health related benefits while lack of movement, inappropriate movement or virtually no movement (lack of vitality or animation) moves us closer to illness, injury or at worse, death. John will integrate advanced neuromuscular techniques with movement to promote fascia as the hydraulic pump transforming the therapeutic benefit of your manual therapy regardless of your stripe.

Joanne Avison

JOANNE AVISON a Structural Integrator (IASI) and an early graduate of Tom Myer’s KMI school (1999-2001). Joanne became a Certified Teacher of Kinesis and has considerable experience in both movement and manual therapy

Joanne is an international teacher of applied structural anatomy for movement and manual practitioners in a variety of fields. She is a professional Structural Integration practitioner and certified teacher (KMI, Anatomy Trains 1998-2005 Tom Myers’ school) and Director of the Art of Contemporary Yoga Teacher Training, London, UK.

Joanne is a Senior Yoga Teacher (E-RYT500) and Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) with the International Association of Yoga Therapists.

As a Member of the BioTensegrity Interest Group (B.I.G.), Joanne is fascinated by the application of BioTensegrity principles to the understanding of the human blueprint and natural biomotional organisation. Her writing and workshops are devoted to making this emerging context for human movement applicable and clearly understood.

Joanne is also a CMED Graduate (2004) and has studied extensively in human development as well as specialising in soft tissue and the links between archetypal behaviour and physiology. Her intensive studies include Human Dissection and movement research in Fascial Fitness with Robert Schleip.

Graham Scarr

GRAHAM SCARR is a chartered biologist and an osteopath with a particular interest in structural mechanics. Fascinated by the numerous examples of geometric patterns and shapes in nature, he has been researching their significance over many years.

He is part of a specific interest group looking at the significance of the biotensegrity concept to biomechanics and clinical practice. Working closely with Dr. Stephen Levin he has developed new models that progress our understanding of the structure-function relationship in biology. Graham is a Fellow of the Linnean Society and a Fellow of The Royal Society of Biology, and has published several papers on this subject.
