A Developmental Kinesiology Approach
4- DAY COURSE – Course “B”- (4 day course) March 2nd-5th 2014
COST 3250 AED EARLY BIRD, 3750 AED AFTER 31st January
The nervous system establishes programs that control human locomotion, which is comprised of posture and movement. This ‘motor control’ is largely established during the first critical years of life. Therefore, the “Prague School” emphasises neurodevelopmental aspects of motor control in order to assess and restore dysfunction of the locomotor system and associated syndromes.
The “Prague School” of Rehabilitation and Manual Medicine was established by key neurologists/physiatrists, all of whom were giants in the 20th Century rehabilitation movement: Professors’ Vaclav Vojta, Karel Lewit, Vladimir Janda, and Frantisek Vele.
Based upon the groundbreaking neurodevelopmental and rehabilitation principles described by these mentors,
Pavel Kolar has organized the next generation of clinical protocols that are designed to restore and stabilize locomotor function. This new rehabilitation approach is called Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS).
2 – DAY COURSE -Sport course “Part I”-March 6th-7th
This course is designed to introduce DNS principles as it relates to exercise and fitness training. Target audience: Trainers, coaches, body work therapists, exercise physiologists & kinesiologists. Please contact the local organizer if you are part of a group that is not listed.

DNS like any good corrective exercise approach supports rather than replaces athletic development. It is an amazing movement prep. Like Gary Gray’s work DNS helps get people off the table, off the floor & finally upright. Not, just uniplaner, but tri-planer. The goal of DNS is to improve the functioning of the core “cylinder” – pelvic floor, diaphragm, abdominal obliques, & deep spinal intrinsics & thus facilitate a more efficient program for upright posture.
