Seminars & Workshops allow our instructors to deliver a hands on session where anyone willing to join us can learn and more importantly experience restoring and rewiring their feet and hips. We offer a single day 6 hour seminar which covers a deep understanding of foot + hip optimization as well as shorter 2 hour workshops.

Both sessions are directed and open to anyone: Runners, lifters, athletes of any kind, physical therapists, personal trainers, physicians and anyone else that wants to improve their own feet & hips or help others do the same.

If you’re interested in hosting a session at your facility or have a group of people in your area looking to learn, please email nick@thefootcollective.com to inquire further.
