About the event

Ribcage position is the often overlooked factor in shoulder girdle function (or dysfunction). In this four hour workshop we will review and assess the interplay between the ribcage, the scapulothoracic, and the glenohumeral joints. Participants will come away with the ability to recognize movement deficits and cue appropriately to restore or enhance function.

Debbie draws on a variety of influences in her work as a movement consultant, most notably a BFA in Acting, a Pilates certification in 1994 with Madeline Black, and extensive study and mentorship with Karen Carlson and Jean-Claude West. Debbie shares a studio with her husband Alec Helner in New York City where she works with clients one-on-one.

Alec has been professionally involved in human movement since graduating Boulder School of Massage Therapy in 1989. He’s had the privilege of extensive study with Jean-Claude West, Karen Carlson and constant discourse and collaboration with Debbie Parsons since 1993 with whom he shares a studio and a marriage in New York City.
