Pain is not a lifestyle. But that is what chronic pain creates. It shrinks everything in life down to one narrow field of experience—and how to manage it. Join master instructors Dr. Mike Lane, DC, and Brian King as they share their more than 30 years of combined experience working with athletes, yogis, and others to show you how to go beyond pain management to reclaim your vital physicality in a way that actually heals your body.
This 5-day retreat uses Foundation Training (FT) to help develop movement strategies that specifically meet your needs at work, home, and the gym, or on the bike, road, court, and field. You will:
- Identify and change habits to manage pain and prevent injury
- Improve posture, performance, and structural integrity
- Increase balance, flexibility, and proprioceptive awareness
- Learn decompression and anchoring techniques for the spine and joints
- Grow stronger and more attuned to your body’s signals through AnatomySense
- Create personalized self-care programs to integrate at home.
Gain the knowledge you need to thrive in your daily, active life through Foundation Training, based on accessible, safe movement sequences that fundamentally take you from pain to performance. Be guided step-by-step through lecture, workouts, discussion, and hands-on therapeutics to move through life with greater ease, efficiency, strength, and mobility.
Join us on the leading edge of movement science. All levels and abilities are welcome. Bodywork professionals, movement teachers, physical trainers, and chiropractors will also benefit, learning skills to take back to their practices.
Foundation Training master instructor
Brian King has helped guide more than 900 instructors through the intensive four day Foundation Training (FT) certification program nationally and internationally. He’s also personally worked with hundreds of people, one-on-one, helping them find freedom from pain.
Brian has been teaching FT For nearly 10 years, having met founder Dr. Eric Goodman in early 2009. He began as a student “curious to learn about making my spine as strong as possible,” and has been a member of the Foundation Training Certification Teaching Team since its inception.
Over the last five years, Brian and the FT team have completed 40 certification events, and Brian has seen FT work for doctors of all kinds, physical therapists, yoga teachers, health practitioners of all modalities, and people who just want to rid themselves of pain. Best known as a “back pain modality,” the FT principles and practices that help strengthen the back and alleviate chronic pain can also add intelligence to preexisting movement practices, making people better at whatever activity they love to do.
Brian has worked with the Olympic women’s beach volleyball team, the Garmin cycling team, professional surfers, and pro golfers along with many other professional athletes.View Bio PageMike Lane, DC
Foundation Training master instructor and chiropractic physician
Dr. Mike Lane’s passion is guiding people into their bodies so they feel empowered to take care of themselves intelligently and effectively. He is a chiropractor, anatomy teacher, and Foundation Training (FT) master instructor.
FT is a performance and postural program designed to optimize health through movement and awareness. His top prescription to clients for pain, healing, and vitality in his bodywork and chiropractic practice, FT is a home remedy that helps maintain alignment, stability, and freedom after chiropractic adjustments.
