Who is this course designed for? It is designed for YOU — either a health care professional or an individual fascinated with optimal human function, natural movement, and increasing their personal level of wellness.
Many take this course for their own personal knowledge of the necessary alignment for optimal health. Many take this course as a pre-requisite to become a certified Restorative Exercise Specialist™ with the intention of teaching alignment to others. Either way, this course is the ultimate stepping stone to a greater awareness of self.

About the course:
Propriometry is the measurement of how well a human’s proprioceptive system calibrates the body’s position in space, and one’s ability to purposefully move or position the body. Created by Katy Bowman, the principles of biology, physics, mechanics and engineering all come into play, as well as the neurological influences of anthropology and psychology.
The Institute’s whole-body education program is based on the biomechanical theory of optimal wellness, and is an in-depth look at how the mechanics of the “human machine” function optimally. This course covers the Biomechanical Model of Preventive Medicine, the effect of alignment on blood flow, and the mechanics of the major musculoskeletal functions of the body. Learn how to optimize your own body as well as evaluate alignment in others using the Restorative Exercise™ 25-point protocol.
Our course teaches alignment free from culture-based theory, and relies on science and evidence-based arguments. Begin with biological theory – the physics of cellular regeneration, current models in pain management, and how the alignment of the skeleton contributes to diseases considered a “normal” part of aging. In addition to corrective exercise, the student will be learning how neurology and motor learning are affected by muscle usage, and how to align the body objectively.
This education program is an in-depth look at the mechanics of the human machine, from the role of muscles and bones in balance and alignment; the role of alignment in optimal function; and the roles of the brain, awareness and culture in supporting or undermining optimal human function.
You can take this course and stop after getting the basic 80 hours of online/video education, OR you can decide to become a fully certified Restorative Exercise specialist, by completing additional homework, attending online study groups, and spending a week at the Institute for an intensive in movement skills, teaching internship, practitioner skill enhancement, and finally, testing. This option completes the requirements for a 200-hour certificate. Start with the online portion and decide as you study, which is the path most right for you.
