Course Details

  • Review of developmental kinesiology in the context of adult optimal posture, sports performance and global motor patterns to enhance outcomes in sport and human movement.
  • Demonstrate exercises in higher developmental positions – tripod, bear, squat, lunge, step up and its modifications & training of body awareness.
  • Demonstrate exercises utilizing the principles of developmental kinesiology with elastic bands,barbells, weights, and gymball
  • Discuss & demonstrate DNS exercises for specific sport techniques: throwing, jumping, stroke,skating etc.
  • Students who want to work towards DNS Trainer certification must pass an online test after DNS Exercise course part II, and before taking DNS Exercise course part III.The online test consists of 30 multiple choice questions, 10 picture and 5 video questions. To pass the test the student must answer 32 out of the 45 questions correctly. The student gets a maximum of three attempts to pass the test.

Speaker: Ruud Alsemgeest, DC

Born in The Netherlands, Ruud Alsemgeest graduated from the Anglo-European College of Chiropractic, in Bournemouth, United Kingdom in 2002. The next ten years he worked as chiropractor and clinic director of one of the largest private chiropractic clinics in The Netherlands. Here, he was fortunate to be able to become experienced with a large variety of patients, from babies to elderly, from weekend-warriors to international elite athletes.

Ruud was introduced to the work of Professors Karel Lewit and not the least Pavel Kolar in 2009. Ever since then, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization has greatly influenced Ruud’s scope of practice.

After his move to Stockholm, Sweden, in 2012 he has been working at his private chiropractic and rehabilitation clinic Funktions Fabriken. Here, he combines an array of manual therapy and soft tissue techniques with DNS developmental exercises and evaluation. His biggest interests are movement analysis and performance optimization for athletes.
