Online Book Club

The 10th and final Book Club in its previous iteration took place at the end of 2021.
The new Book Club structure is an evergreen product with ongoing comment threads and exclusive invitations to online meetings.

Course Objectives

The Book Club is for readers who wish to gain real-time access to the author and gain a chapter-by-chapter synopsis of major themes.

This online program will teach you how to:

  • Use the book as a text in your teacher training program
  • Explain biomechanics in simple, useful terms
  • Make sense of confusing cueing
  • Consider research as a valuable source of information

Course Topics

  • Biomechanics Basics
  • Force, Applied/Modified Loads, and Stress
  • Progressive Overload and Specificity
  • Conventional Stretching
  • Stretching and Performance
  • Eccentrics
  • Mechanical Properties of Connective Tissue
  • Tissue Behavior, Structure, and Composition
  • Tissue Adaptation, Capacity, and Tension
  • Exploration into Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Alignment and Posture

The Perfect Learning Path For You

My goal is to expand teachers' minds through a deep process of reflection so that they know exactly who they are and what they believe with clarity, confidence, and purpose.

You can start your education path with me anytime that fits into your schedule and on any topic that you’re drawn to.

Learning to Learn

The biomechanics content I provide is about more than just learning facts and getting things right. I teach you how to think about this knowledge, how to apply it in certain settings, and how to question when specific strategies might be successful or not. When I teach that “it depends” I insist on supporting you in discovering what it might depend on.

Learning in Layers

You learn in layers, which means wherever you start is the perfect place to start. You learn a new concept and then contextualize that information into a real-life setting, recognizing that biology is multidimensional and non-linear. You aren't just memorizing data and you aren't just jumping to large, sweeping conclusions. You are learning to make complex decisions based on appropriate considerations, which means there is no beginning or end. Just dive in and let the layering begin!

Learning Overlap

While all of my courses are unique, there is overlap in many major themes. This overlap reinforces major concepts within individual courses that fit into a the much larger narrative that I build within my program offerings as a whole.

Learning Just for You

My live courses reflect my fluid teaching style. While I always have an agenda and a general course outline, I’m also extremely encouraging of asking questions and chasing the pursuit of knowledge together. My goal is to help you refine your questions so you are clearer about what you know and what you don’t know. This means no two live courses are the same, even when the course has the same name!

The content is always driven by the topics that matter to the group and we use the major concepts outlined in the course syllabus to tease out powerful educational opportunities. You’ll see people repeating the same courses over and over because they are hungry for these interactions and discussions.
