Freely Moveable Joints
August 25-28 Manawatu 2018
About Freely Moveable Joints
Freely Moveable Joints is an advanced level Zero Balancing course that expands the focus of Zero Balancing from the foundation and semi-foundation joints of the body to include the “freely moveable joints” of the body. ZB principles and techniques are taken beyond the Core ZB protocol into other arenas. The freely moveable joints present unique therapeutic challenges because of the variety of their anatomy and their great ranges of motion. By the end of the program you will have the skills to evaluate and balance freely moveable joints and the knowledge to devise your own fulcrums to meet the specific needs of a given situation. In Freely Moveable Joints we will review basic ZB principles and highlight their application to a number of joints in light of their specific anatomy. The skills and education inherent in this course will broaden your ZB abilities and will improve your sessions.

This rural Manawatu venue
is a converted hay-barn on idyllic organic homestead property. The views from this hilltop location on a clear day include as far south as Kapiti Island, as far west as Mt. Taranaki, as far north as Mt. Ruapehu and over to the Tongariro ranges to the East.
Far away from the noise of cars or other people, the sounds of native birds chorus from the new growth native shelter trees.
The catered meals come from the lovingly grown produce on the property itself. Farm-to-table has never been more direct.
The composting toilet, rainwater collection and simple accomodation model environmental stewardship and permaculture principles at their best. Rustic, peaceful, and environmentally sustainable to the highest degree, this is an exceptional setting for connecting with the energy of ZB.
Staying on-site is optional, and so is the meal plan! There is a basic kitchen where can prepare or reheat your own meals, or you can have all three meals catered for you with simple fresh and health-full meals.
Please indicate your preferences on the registration form. Accomodation is in shared rooms or the barn loft.
On-site accomodation NZ$20 per night
Catered meals (breakfast lunch and dinner) $30 per day
starting with dinner friday evening before the course, and ending with lunch on Tuesday.
