Take your professional practice to the next level with this proven and groundbreaking method.
So you’ve been practicing and teaching yoga for some time now, or maybe you are an experienced physical therapist of some kind (like a Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist, Massage Therapist, Osteopath, Chiropractor).
You are great at what you do and have a serious passion for supporting clients to feel ease in their bodies and their minds.
But something’s missing.
You feel you could be doing more to help your clients truly move on from chronic and persistent pain, you have an inkling there are some new techniques that could help you take your practice even further and ultimately get even better outcomes for your clients.
Then you are in the right place.
This 20 hour continuing education course will teach the Foundations of SomaYoga.
SomaYoga is a synergy of Somatics, therapeutic yoga and classic asana that helps us work towards smarter muscles, more functional movement and lasting pain resolution. This approach blends neuroscience, philosophy and core practices of Somatics to revolutionize your approach to physical practice and teaching.
This course will introduce you to the concepts and practices you need to start integrating this methodology into your own personal practice, into your classes or therapeutic sessions.
Using SomaYoga Foundations you can enhance or reinvent your yoga/therapeutic practice to support your clients to:
- Bring greater awareness to their body and muscles as they go through their practice or session, re-educating muscles and movement patterns to support deeper and more long-term healing.
- Nourish the nervous system by truly relaxing into their rest and digest mode for the most benefit during your sessions.
- Learn about how stress, trauma and habituated movement patterns create pain in the body.
- Retrain healthy movement patterns so they move more functionally and pain free.
- Finally kick that persistent pain for good and move into more freedom, movement and fun.
This intensive training is perfect for:
- Yoga and movement instructors wanting continuing education and to broaden their teaching skills.
- Curious yoga students who want to deepen their body awareness and physical practice, get out of pain, and increase athletic performance.
- Bodyworkers & healers such as PTs, OTs, Chiropractors & Massage Therapists to add a Somatic foundation to their professional skill set.
