Balancing Our Age: Easy Tricks to Prevent Falls and Fracture

Workshop With Bill Boland and Kathryn Kohler

Statistics show that 1 person in 3 over 65 will fall this year. That is a frightening fact, but it’s one that can be greatly improved. Older people sustain such injuries by stumbling on stairs; slipping in bathtubs; falling off ladders and step stools; and tripping over garden hoses, dog leashes, and household appliance cords.

Balance can become more precarious as we age. It doesn’t have to be this way. Regain your center and your steadiness through simple coordination and strength-building exercises. Good reflexes and balance are natural. It will all come back to you.

Good balance comes through correct joint mechanics and functional movement patterns. It’s a joy to be able to walk and move safely, without fear. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is.

All it takes is a simple refresher in moving and awareness. This weekend workshop will take you back to simpler times, days when balance was a given and not a worry. It can be again. You will go home with a newfound confidence, tools to fall-proof your home, and a new sense of adventure!

How to Run Pain Free Forever!

Workshop With Bill Boland and Kathryn Kohler

Form isn’t everything, but it sure tops whatever is in second place. Our heart gets us to the finish line, and desire gets us out on a cold, rainy day, and hope pushes us up and over those hill repeats that never seem to get easier. We want to be more efficient in our running but to do that our form has to take advantage of our frame, our body, not the body of a Usain Bolt, Eliud Kipchoge, Tatyana McFadden, or Mary Keitany. We are unique. Our running style and form is ours alone.

We can’t run like someone else. No one has the same body and no one runs the same. Neither should they; that is what makes us what we are and allows us to run at our best. But, can I improve my form, run better, and without pain? Yes, absolutely. Get your body in alignment. Alignment allows all of your muscles to do the job they were designed to do, letting you move with ease and grace.

The number of running injuries increases annually, and not because more people are running each year. The total number of runners in the US has stabilized at 12 million but the injuries just keep coming. One out of two runners, male and female, are injured each year.

That doesn’t have to happen to you. Come to our one-day workshop and learn how to improve your running form, enhance your mileage and PR, and run pain free. This is a small group workshop, limited to six people, and the work will be hands-on, not seminar-sitting. You will receive a personalized alignment and movement evaluation, plus a take-home corrective exercise program unique to your form, height, weight, gender, and skill level. Poor form will keep you from running well and pain free at any age. Find your best form at this BodyFix Method™ workshop and run with ease and grace forever.

Balance: Sitting, Standing, and Walking

Workshop with Elaine o’Brien & Kathryn Kohler

Balance and grace are important elements of living and comfort. Without balance, we can fall, at any age. Without grace, we can’t put all the pieces together to maintain our posture and alignment. A ballet dancer is graceful, but so are we, when we get it all together and balanced.

Balance is a word often associated with aging, with older people falling or being fearful of falling. Yet, thousands of young and middle-aged people trip and fall every year, most of them because their body position is off center, out of alignment. Their usually reliable balance mechanisms don’t work in less than perfect conditions, and down they go. It’s easily preventable, with focus and a few balance exercises.

We have created 5 simple exercises to keep you strong, balanced, and upright in all conditions. The exercises will fit in with your yoga, Pilates, or personal training routine. We’ll show you tips on how to stand, sit, and walk with grace and balance. We’ll work with you to help you master the steps. In addition, you’ll take home a handbook of easy to do exercises. It will all flow together and good balance will be part of you again.

Eliminate Low Back Pain With Good Posture


Everyone seems to suffer from low back pain. Back pain is the number one concern of most adults and of a surprising number of young people. Low back pain has reached almost epidemic proportions in terms of doctor and physical therapist visits. It doesn’t have to be this way. Most chronic back pain is the result of a misalignment elsewhere in the body.

Simple, therapeutic alignment exercises can be learned by anyone. There’s a natural way to move and our bodies want to move that way, aligned, using the body’s vertical axis as our support and guide. Good, beautiful posture is the result of good alignment. Alignment is the way our bodies work.

Learn how to move and how to teach that movement. Use a biomechanical review of joints and muscles to guide the body toward good posture, correct use of muscles and joints, and walking patterns.
