Come immerse yourself in Ortho-Bionomy in the tranquility of the Panoche Valley. This remote, high desert valley is an hour from the nearest town and is surrounded by the Diablo Mountains.

We will blend the Phases of Ortho-Bionomy and give you insights on how to improve your work. 

We will cover:

Taking care of yourself at the table

Body awareness and session ergonomics

Meeting your client where they are

Putting together a session

Addressing the body

Pacing your session to finish in the allotted time

The business of Ortho-Bionomy

Receiving clients and session intake

Receiving and giving sessions

Answer your questions

Plus much more!

A residential gives us time to come together in community to deepen our understanding of ourselves, and, Ortho-Bionomy principles and techniques, through discussion, shared insights and experiences, instruction, and hands-on practice. All without the distractions of everyday life. The 5 days allow us to explore and experience “follow-on” as the week progresses.

Douglas Ranch: You enter the Panoche Valley on the old stagecoach route. Since settling here the Don Douglas Family has created a diverse place where visitors can experience beauty and tranquility in a western ranch setting. The scenery is breathtaking from sunup to sunset with wide open spaces and beautiful panoramas at every turn. The ranch is a “Lessons and Boarding Facility,” and hosts groups for Horsemanship Lessons, Cow Working Clinics, Back Country Rides.


The ranch has open areas to hike or explore.  The creek bed is a great place to rock and fossil hunt, and also fun for Frisbee golf!  There are many species of birds, owls and raptors in the trees and meadow near the cabins for bird enthusiasts.  There is a swimming pool (weather permitting) and Mercey Hot Springs is nearby.

Classes in the Practitioner Programs:

A note about names of Ortho-Bionomy classes: Phases 4, 5 and 6 are names for certain types of techniques and do not indicate an order for taking classes.  There is no particular order for studying Ortho-Bionomy, although it is my preference that students start at the Basic Phase 4 class to develop a good foundation to build the rest of the work.  There are no classes for Phases 1, 2, and 3. Learn why when you come to class. 

Exploration of Movement Patterns, Isometrics & Isotonic, Postural Re-education, Whiplash, Ethics & Emotions,

Demonstration Skills, Practitioner Training Seminar, Phase 5 (using the dynamic energy of the

 structure), Cranial, Chapman's Reflexes, Phase 6 (using energy fields to initiate

 specific releases). See Practitioner Training Handbook @ www.ortho-bionomy.org
