Course participants will learn in a supportive group setting the difference between fascial tissue training and muscular training. Interactive labs will be presented incorporating the concepts of PNF, recoil, swing and plyometrics. Teachers will learn to identify physical efficiency of efforts
which lead to gentle overall changes in the stress-strain patterns of the fascial body.
Content of the Course:
This intensive workshop gives GYROTONIC®️ Trainers the means to deepen their knowledge about the interaction between the vocabulary of the GYROTONIC®️ Method and fascial training. In this workshop, participants hone their vocabulary and evaluation skills in a supportive group setting. Students learn to identify fundamental fascial patterns through structured assessment of the human body. Principles of anatomy, biomechanics and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation are incorporated. Students will learn to pinpoint physical efforts,to increase training selections. and to build upon concepts they're already using in their Gyrotonic sessions

Tri-planer training offers a dynamic approach to facilitate the nervous system reserves, improve motor skills, strength, and range of motion.
Through observation and analysis of motor recruitment patterns including Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation and Myers Functional Lines, teachers will learn how to achieve immediate and lasting results for their clients.
Movement lab sequences along with manual skills, will be practiced supporting the teacher’s knowledge on how to by develop movement exercise plans, based on the differences in training
approaches to muscular vs. connective tissue.
The course might overrun 30 mins each day.
