Workshops: Stability for Success
in Movement, Learning and Life!
Who Should Attend
• Occupational Therapists
• Physical Therapists
• Speech Therapists
• Developmental Therapists
• Psych/LCSW
• Massage Therapists
• Fitness Professionals
Proper posture, correct alignment
and muscle function are well known
as ingredients of good balance and
pain-free movement. Underlying all
posture and move- ment is a set
of Intrinsic Stabilizing Sequences™.
Ranges of optimal stability are
also the ranges where an individual
can function optimally—positions
of success!
The four levels of workshops cover
all aspects of Intrinsic Stabilizing
Sequences beginning with understanding and assessing, application
of these insights to our lives, and
enabling improvements with the
Kinetic Bridging technique. Details
of each course and registration
information can be found at
This introductory level course is designed for individuals and
professionals of all levels.
This interactive workshop will introduce the participants to the world of Intrinsic Stabilizing
Sequences™ and how they relate to movement, motor control, motor planning, injury modes, and
accommodative strategies. Case studies will be used to understand application of the results to
guide success in development, academic, athletic performance, and to minimize repetitive stress
patterns. Parents and educators can gain insights behind children’s behavior and learning styles.
Course Objectives
Participants will learn:
• T
he ten primary attributes of Intrinsic Stabilizing Sequences™ and their relevance
• A
ssessment of intrinsic stability related to postural sway control including the role
of vision upon stability
• A
pplication of postural sway stability assessments to client profiles
Format and Method of Instruction
The Stability for Success course is 1/3 lecture, 1/3 demonstration and hands-on practice, and
1/3 case-study discussion. Each portion will include time for measurement of learning objectives.

During the past decade Cara
developed the Kinetic Bridging®
technique as a way to quickly reset
Intrinsic Stabilizing Sequences™.
In her work with hundreds of clients
of every age and ability, she
recognized stability improvements
led to improvements in posture,
movement, flexibility and balance as
well as reductions in pain. A stable
foundation of physical function also
promotes more efficient sensory
processing and cognitive skills.
Cara is a certified Personal Trainer

Specialist with the American Council
on Exercise (ACE). She holds a BS
in Electrical Engineering from the
Illinois Institute of Technology and a
Masters in Engineering Management
from Northwestern University. She is
a recognized speaker as an expert on
various fitness related topics including
balance, strength and health.
She is currently a member of the
IDEA national fitness organization,
