About the Workshop

Core Zero Balancing: Advancing Skills Day classes (formerly called "review days") enhance the process of learning Zero Balancing, sharpen the skills of those who have not taken courses recently, and develop relationships among ZB practitioners. Student questions shape the lessons, and the format may include presentations, demonstrations, touch feedback and session swaps. All of the students must have taken at least ZB1. 

You Will Learn:
  • Revisiting and deepening of Zero Balancing Principles and theory
  • Review of the Zero Balancing session
  • Revisiting and deepening all basic ZB fulcrums and an introduction (if you've not yet learned them) to the ZB II fulcrums
  • Revisiting and deepening hip, foot, ribs, trapezius, scapulae, shoulder, neck, SI fulcrums
  • Revisiting and deepening the Half Moon Vectors
“I’ve found that review days are an essential (though often overlooked) way to deepen our understanding of the ZB principles in a very personal way. I’ve found that in working on my own for too long, it’s so easy to lose my way a bit, and Review Days help me clear the fog and get back on track. They’re also great for developing relationships with other ZBers, and building more community.” Tom Coen, CMT

“Review days are extremely helpful when I have time and money to participate, because I receive a lot of one-on-one tender loving care. The techniques become more mine and more usable for me and my clients.” Susy Boge, OTR

“I have greatly benefited from the review days. the teachers do a wonderful job reviewing the basic protocol and adds in new techniques or different ways of using techniques already learned. The review days are also a good way to connect with and learn from other Zero Balancers.” Julia K. Wilkinson, PT

“Working with others who practice ZB offers a practitioner the chance to get feedback and support from those who truly understand the work. I have found Review Days to be a vibrant part of the “circulatory system” of the ZB community, which supports practitioners on their evolving journey with Zero Balancing." Beth Terrence, LMT
