New: Myofascial Release Module (60hrs)

Oct 28 – Nov 4, 2017 | Nosara, Costa Rica

We are thrilled to launch Tiffany’s newest module, MYOFASCIAL RELEASE, in the tropical jungles of Blue Spirit Retreat in Costa Rica. Our week-long teacher trainings modules include 7 nights accommodation and 3 freshly prepared meals that will fuel you for an intensive practice and learning experience amongst your community of Yoga Medicine teachers. 

The module begins with a daily 2-hour morning practice & ends with a more restorative practice in the evening that ties into the course content to help you integrate the information. The teacher training lectures are held during the day with homework each evening to help you retain the information.

 This training is geared towards yoga teachers, and we also welcome physical therapists, coaches, bodyworkers, etc. If you’d like to take this training without enrolling in Yoga Medicine’s 500/1000hr program, then you are welcome to register without enrolling in Yoga Medicine teacher training program.

Myofascial Release Module (60hrs)

The Myofascial Release Module is an in-depth look at the science behind the role of the fascia and use of myofascial release techniques within a yoga setting. In this training will dive into the current understanding of the fascia as well as the function and dysfunction of the fascia in conjunction to therapeutic application 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.

This module is a great adjunct to the yoga practice for those with injuries or restrictions and a great combination to the orthopedic modules (hip, spine, shoulder, extremities) when taken before or after to integrate the information and apply it in a more effective way.

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

If you are enrolled in Yoga Medicine’s 500hr or 1000hr program, this module will count as 60 hours towards your certification. Following the module you will be invited to take a short, online quiz to receive your certificate of completion.
