Myofascial Release Training

Online Training

Goes live on September 1st

About

Join us for Yoga Medicine’s Myofascial Release training that will be led by Tiffany Cruikshank and Megan Kearney, a Yoga Medicine® Therapeutic Specialist, with contributions from Katja Bartsch, BSc, BCSI. Together, our expert teachers will guide you through this invaluable training using asana practices, daytime lectures, and case studies to create an in-depth, hands-on learning experience.

The Myofascial Release training offers an in-depth look at the science behind the role of fascia and use of myofascial release techniques within a yoga setting. In this training, we will discuss the most recent research on fascia and examine the function and dysfunction of the fascia in conjunction to therapeutic techniques. We will identify common areas and trigger points in the body that with simple, mindful self-application can be a great tool for working with yoga students and private clients alike.

In-line with the current educational industry standards under COVID-19, this training is being offered in an online format.

Who is This Training For?

For teachers dedicated to a higher standard of learning looking to deepen their knowledge.

The Myofascial Release Training is a 55-hour advanced online training for individuals looking to use myofascial release techniques in their yoga practice within a therapeutic setting or as an addition to other affiliated movement/mobility specialities (bodyworkers, coaches, physical therapists, etc.), and for those who are simply interested in learning more about this invaluable curriculum. To fully benefit from this training, we recommend that anyone considering to enroll is actively working with students and clients within a yoga or therapeutic setting.

Yoga Medicine® believes that an experienced yoga teacher can be a benefit in conjunction with the healthcare network; and with our credentials, your students will know that their yoga teacher is well trained with a wide range of experience. Yoga Medicine® trains our community of teachers to understand the body and the therapeutic approaches within a yoga practice so that they can build a personalized practice to the individual across any yoga style or level of wellness.

Program Structure

This training has six sections – each section is composed of pre-recorded lectures, asana practices, review and homework to integrate the information.

We also have a scheduled Q&A call for each section to keep you on track. If you’re unable to join the Q&A calls, you can post your questions online and watch the recording within the online portal whenever you like.

  • – Intro Call: Wednesday, September 1st at 9am PST

With the new academic system we’ve implemented this year, this yoga teacher training will run live from September 1-31, 2021 during the Summer Quarter – and we would love for you to complete this live training with us during this timeframe if it works with your schedule. It is our hope that having a Summer Quarter in place will give our yoga teacher training program a more academic feel and provide a more realistic timeline to complete your trainings with continuous support from Yoga Medicine along the way.

We created this online training to be flexible with your schedule so you can complete it at your own pace. The full training will become available on September 1st and there is no deadline by which you need to complete the training as you’ll have unlimited access to the training materials even after completion. Most of all we are committed to bringing you the highest quality of education by our incredible teachers to your door.

This yoga teacher training will count as 55 ‘in-person/contact’ hours towards your 500-hour/1000-hour Yoga Medicine certification. Directly following the training you will be invited to take an online exam to receive your certificate of completion and training hours. These hours will still be recognized by Yoga Alliance as well, click here to read more about their guidelines on online training hours.

Program Curriculum

This 55-hour Myofascial Release Online Teacher Training is a great adjunct to the yoga practice for those with injuries or restrictions and a great combination to the orthopedic trainings (hip, spine, shoulder, extremities) when taken before or after to integrate the information and apply it in a more effective way.

The training will focus on myofascial release techniques with a yoga practice to incorporate some of the myofascial release in a moderate vinyasa setting and a short restorative class within each section. In between you will have lectures. This training is open to anyone looking to use myofascial release in their yoga practice, within a therapeutic setting or as an adjunct to other complimentary movement/mobility specialities (bodyworkers, coaches, PTs, etc.).

Here are the main topics that we will cover during the Myofascial Release Teacher Training:

  • Fascia
  • Fascia Dysfunction
  • Myofascial Release
  • Trigger Points
  • Myofascial Chains
