This website is a hub for information on Axis Syllabus happenings on the west coast of the United States.
The Axis Syllabus International Research Meshwork engages an on-going inquiry into how to train the moving body for increased dynamic potential while preserving and amplifying personal wellbeing. The Axis Syllabus* (AS) was first consolidated by Frey Faust and can be considered an information resource, a pool of tools, tactics and knowledge for continuously improving movement education and training practices. The AS aims to be a detailed and continuously redefining movement analysis system that is based on ongoing multi-scientific and pedagogical inquiry. Knowledge is gathered, organized and tested by a community of teachers and students from around the world. Safe falling reflexes, transitions, finding healthy range of motion and kinetic efficiency are some of the key objectives. Classes are typically open to all levels and students are encouraged to engage material at a pace and approach that preferences integration over memorization. To this end, the AS teachers often offer a range of adaptations to proposed movement motifs so learning can be supported for beginners and seasoned movers simultaneously.
*"The Axis Syllabus" is also the title of a book by Faust and can be found on the Resources page.
