"4 fantastic days of new ways to see, experience and change the body." Sean Campbell, Barcelona, Spain
The Bridge Prelude is open to all qualified movement, manual and medical professionals to learn and experience how to take your work into the newly appreciated world of fascia.
This profound new body of work brings you to a new dimension of the body, leading you into the 'century for change'.
The 4 days will expand your professional horizons, and offer you new therapeutic applications for physical and physiological change.
It introduces you to the concept and experience of Spatial Medicine bridging manual, movement and medical approaches to see and effect as one; it will change the way you work forever.
What does it offer:
The Bridge Prelude offers an enriched experience and therapeutic applications to understand and work with the nature of the neurofascial system.
It demonstrates how the fascia is the regulatory system, the greatest sensory organ, our stability system, and the distribution system, offering you new ways to see, to perceive and to work with the body from this fascial perspective.
Through what we do (and even think) we are always creating fascial change. Becoming conscious of this continuous subconscious happening we can elicit profound and sustained change, at will.
These days will teach you to recognize and change fascial imbalances, the strain patterns, habit patterns, and associated re-action patterns that in time become our symptoms; by re-storing to re-set the neurofascial pathways we influence the whole of your physiology.
This work offers a new vision and a new application for rehabilitation; teaching you to re-connect, re-negotiate and thereby re-regulate movement and neural state.
In these 4 days you will perceive yourself and your work from a new perspective, see infinite new possibilities and ways to infuse this information into your work and lives.
What qualification will I get:
You will receive a Certificate of Completion.
The Bridge Prelude is the pre-requisite for Bridge 2: The Change, a qualifying component.

Joyce was first introduced to Pilates at Houston Ballet where she danced professionally for 10 years, retiring in 1995. Pilates helped her rehabilitate from serious injury, allowing her to successfully return to the stage and extend her career. She began her study of the Pilates method in 1998, and has continued to deepen her understanding through workshops with first generation teachers, Pilates Method Alliance Certification (Gold Standard, 2003), as well as the Pilates Center of Boulder's Masters Program (2009). In constant search for more depth and greater possibility, Joyce is also a Yamuna Body Rolling practitioner with special focus on the foot and face, a Rossiter Coach, and an Anatomy Trains Associate Teacher.
In 2013, she serendipitously crossed paths with Karin Locher as they were both assisting an Anatomy Trains workshop. She found Karin's true embodiment of the myofascial meridians in their wholeness so mesmerizing that she invited her to introduce this work in the Houston area.
Over the course of the following two years, Joyce successfully completed Spatial Medicine's first Bridge to CPM held in the United States, and has continued on to join the international Faculty Team of Spatial Medicine. She shares her love of this work both at Pilates Treehouse, a fascial playground, and at Houston Ballet, using the inner spatial relationships of the body to heal and empower.
