Professionalize your PASSION for intelligent movement.  

You don't have to be a clinical anatomist or work in a lab to understand the helical basis of human form and function.

If you are a movement educator, your work teaching people how to breathe and move optimally just got easier.

The Five Filaments spiral motion rubric is a simple, evidence-based approach to understanding biomechanics and talking about functional movement with your clients in practice.
