This VS will focus on how we sense the body’s position in space utilizing the Baseworks gridlines and Symmetry principles.

In this VS, we will explore ways in which we can enhance the mobility of our spine and bring awareness to it.

Knowing the terms describing the method’s movement vocabulary is essential to understand the instructions. This VS introduces Baseworks-specific terms to describe Baseworks movements.

It’s a misconception that the motor cortex controls muscles like a keyboard. But in Baseworks practice, we are trying to use it more like a keyboard, making motor learning easier.

In this VS, we will pick up different forms/movements with differing Base of Support and look into how Baseworks utilizes the contact with the Base of Support to enhance stability and contribute to building strength.

This VS will focus on the Baseworks Distributed Activation principle for how to holistically approach strength-specific fitness goals.

This VS utilizes the Baseworks Sense, Control, Adapt framework to explore the idea of looking at the reality of ever-changing physical and environmental circumstances, the concept of struggle, and the cultivation of perception as integral components of physical development.

In this VS, we will bring awareness to how the gravitational force works on us and how to best move in relation to it. We will start by selecting specific forms/movements that work in relation to different gravitational pulls to familiarize ourselves with this idea. Based on this, we will explore…..

In Linguistics, inflection is a change in the form of a word (typically the ending) to express a grammatical function (such as gender, number, person, or tense). In this VS, we will break down the INFLECT syntax to better….

This VS will cover some of the more refined practice applications that relate to developing a compounded understanding of the movement tasks and how they directly affect sustaining and informing the outcome.
