Myofascial release has many uses and applications that make it a particularly effective tool when working with pain, injuries, movement restrictions (limited range of motion), performance enhancement, athlete recovery, as an adjunct to help prevent injuries and as a tool to support the health of the connective tissue.
The 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.
We’ll take a deep dive into myofascial release techniques and contraindications, as a preparation to learning over 100 different techniques for every part of the body. You’ll have modifications and prop options for each technique so you can adapt it to meet the needs of the person you’re working with and we’ll talk about specific therapeutics along the way. At the end we’ll talk on protocols for the back, hip, knee, ankle, shoulder, elbow and wrist along with adaptations and take a look at the myofascial chains that unite the system and bring all the information together.
Upon completion you will have all the tools you need to integrate myofascial release techniques into your classes, teach myofascial release classes, use myofascial release within a therapeutic setting, answer questions and apply the information with clients in a one-one setting.
