Strengthen Your Glutes
(and hamstrings while your at it...)
Saturday October 19th 10:30AM - 1:00PM EDT
Our three gluteal muscles are incredibly important for standing, walking and running.
They each have specific functions but due to poor posture, incorrect instruction and general overuse this muscle group tends to suffer terribly and it often the culprit when it comes to chronic pain.
This workshop covers the anatomy, function and exercise designed to change your understanding and relationship to your wrists and hands so you have tools for healing and aging going forward.
You will get a recording of the workshop along with a pdf of the slideshow presentation and an eBook of the exercises.
Additionally, there will be a follow up Q & A on Sunday October 20th @ 12PM where you can ask any questions you want .
Strengthen Your Glutes
The three gluteal muscles are gluteus maximus, medius, and minimus.
They have distinct functions.
Gluteus maximus is an extensor muscle essential to pushing off of the big toe when walking and running.
Gluteus medius and minimus are internal and external rotators of the hip and stabilizers of the pelvis.
I think the gluteus maximus is both overworked and weak and because the gluteus maximus is overworked the gluteus medius and medius are underworked.
Chronic pain involving the low back, sciatic nerve and piriformis muscle is often the result of this profound imbalance.
This workshop will focus on the anatomy and function of the glutes and hamstrings and go through a strengthening series of exercises.

I signed on and was immediately smitten with Jonathan FitzGordon’s style...
I came across the BodyMind webinar while recovering from back surgery and because walking was the only activity I was allowed to do, I signed on and was immediately smitten with Jonathan FitzGordon’s style of presentation, open-mindedness to both anecdotal and scientific data, diagrams of anatomy not usually found in anatomy books, and discussions of books concerning Anatomy or Yoga both current and past. All of this has helped me. This concludes my specular take on Core Walking BodyMind

His bottomless curiosity about the human form is infectious.
Jonathan is a refreshingly wry teacher whose classes are both precise and exploratory. His bottomless curiosity about the human form is infectious. I always learn new ways to engage my body, and I typically enjoy surprising soreness a day or so later. I've watched countless students transform their practice under his guidance, and regularly recommend his classes for anyone looking to strengthen and balance their body using an intelligent and light-hearted approach.

After a year of working with Jonathan I am without pain, more aware of my walking posture and engaged in his live yoga classes as often as possible.
My initial introduction to Jonathan’s work came during a web search because of trouble with sciatica pain in my left lower leg.The doctors had recommended steroid shots and possibly surgery! CoreWalking promised relief and I was willing to listen to more. After a year of working with Jonathan I am without pain, more aware of my walking posture and engaged in his live yoga classes as often as possible. Following the MindBody webinars over the past year has given me extensive information and valuable insight as to how the body functions. I appreciated the special guests and Jonathan’s unique ability to make all the brilliant information “user friendly”.
