Program Description

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.

    Mike 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 master instructor dedicated to helping others heal through intelligent movement and self-awareness.

    Over the last 18 years, Dr. Mike has studied a wide spectrum of healing modalities, including craniosacral therapy, Active Release Technique, Hendrickson Method, chiropractic, and emotional release. He believes that many of the most common diseases stem from the mind, distracting us from the body’s innate wisdom.

    Dr. Mike teaches Foundation Training (FT), a performance and postural program designed to optimize health through movement and awareness. In his years of bodywork and chiropractic practice, he has seen that FT is a home remedy that helps maintain alignment, stability, and freedom after chiropractic adjustments. FT is his number-one prescription for pain, healing, and vitality.

    He teaches AnatomySense in dynamic workshops and yoga teacher trainings, inspiring students to better understand themselves and their students.

    Dr. Mike also leads weekend retreats for men to become more compassionate and present. He has taught nationally and internationally, including for Lululemon, Wanderlust, YogaWorks, Yoga Tree, and the Esalen Institute.

  • Why Attend
    • If you have been searching for relief and tried “everything” without results—these tools will alleviate most syndromes such as chronic injury, repetitive strain, headaches, disc herniations, and pain in the back, neck, feet, knees, hips, or shoulders. <br />

    • For every “body”—all desk jockeys, weekend warriors, movement lovers, movement professionals, and body nerds looking for more effective ways to manage pain and regain an active lifestyle for yourself and your students/clients.

    • Learn how to make necessary modifications in daily life and exercise to protect and decompress the spine, balance mobility and stability, create space in the nervous system, distribute forces in muscles rather than joints or ligaments, and stabilize the body from the foundation up.
