This workshop will introduce a unique perspective on health, vitality, and physical education. Participants will be introduced to the key concepts and principles of Baseworks, gain insights from our research, and learn practical strategies for performing and teaching movement.

Toronto Workshop content:

  • Baseworks techniques of muscle co-activation and attention allocation that can be applied across common exercises to make them more individually appropriate for changing pre-existing movement habits
  • The 3 types of body awareness framework and its relevance to mental and physical health
  • The concept of Physical intelligence as it relates to increasing healthspan, productivity, and learning capacity.
  • Basic concepts in neuroscience related to various conscious/unconscious aspects in movement and decision-making, especially as it relates to education and the ability to change behavioral and movement habits
  • Our interpretation of the Fits and Posner model of skills acquisition that is relevant to developing body awareness


  • Immediately start applying what you’ve learned in daily life, other physical activities, and/or your teaching environment.

She has been involved in projects related to the effects of stress on learning and memory, and alongside her research and development for Baseworks, she is now studying the pro-cognitive effects of medium-chain triglycerides. As Baseworks partner and co-developer her mission is to map the method applications onto known neurobiological mechanisms to improve the method’s efficacy and “translate” the pioneering applications, charting them back onto common categories in exercise physiology, other movement practices, and everyday life.
