Join this unique opportunity to certify as a Moving Fascia® Teacher:
Advance your understanding of connective tissue through practical application.
Integrate a broad repertoire of effective self fascial release techniques into your existing practice.
Grow your critical thinking, recognising the root cause of movement restrictions from an integrated ‘whole body’ approach.
Gain new practical tools that inspire your programming of client specific sessions.
Learn through your own experience, driving your understanding of fascia and anatomy into practice.
I am a movement specialist, Pilates teacher and myofascial release practitioner. My practice explores the fluid and transformative quality of breath and movement.
Through self-enquiry, a passion for anatomy and my extensive work helping people recover from injury, I have created Moving Fascia ®.
I believe that anatomy needs to be experienced through the felt sense, so I developed a programme in which we explore the fascial architecture through theory, embodiment, self-myofascial release and movement techniques.
I suffer from catamenial pneumothorax, a rare condition where I experience repetitive lung collapses. This has led me to a continuous investigation of fascia, focusing on the visceral space and its connections to breath and movement.
“The study of embryonic origins and the cellular world of fascia can have a huge impact and relevance on how we explore the body in movement”
Ana's knowledge and enthusiasm and commitment shine through; the huge amount of effort invested by the the EME team to give a high quality personal experience to students is really evident.
A comment on all the work and thought you have put into the manual - it’s amazing and I realise how invaluable it will be as I go over the techniques to really learn them - thank you!"
Everything has been a new experience for me which is great. I loved all of the sequences we've done today, I loved the scapula work, that was amazing. The feedback I was getting was just incredible and I feel great!
I am in awe of your set up, it's amazing. All the different angles available, that was really beneficial to be able to see so clearly exactly where the ball was - on your foot, on the scapula - that was really advantageous.
Informative; thought-provoking; absorbing; beneficial on a personal mind-body level but also providing a wealth of ideas which will inform my teaching.
It’s exciting! It has taken me to the next level in my personal development and now I can offer it to my clients. I see it as the jumping board of a lifelong exploration of fascia.
The Moving Fascia method can be integrated into all movement disciplines.
This course is for movement teachers (Pilates, yoga, Feldenkrais, personal training and other modalities) as well as manual therapists (massage, osteopathy, physiotherapy...)

What is a hybrid format?
Our hybrid format means that the course happens live via zoom and we have a limited number of in person spaces at our studio in Brighton, UK. This hybrid format allows us to reach those that are not able to come to our Brighton home as well as offer the 'in person' contact that we all need and crave so much.
If for any reason in person training can not go ahead we will transfer all live trainings to zoom only.
All material will be available to watch again on our platform.
What are the dates for the live training?
Our live training dates for the 2022 intake are as follows:
Sat 17th & Sun 18th Sept 2022 9am-5pm BST
Sat 22nd & Sun 23rd Oct 2022 9am-5pm BST
Sunday 13th Nov 2022 10am-1pm BST
Sunday 4th Dec 2022 10am-1pm BST
What do I need for the movement sessions?
You will need a soft roller and a massage ball for the experiential movement sessions. It’s preferable that you have a soft roller but any will do, a harder roller can be softened with blankets. That goes for the massage ball too, the softer the better but a variety will still work.
We can make other suggestions for alternatives you can suggest for your clients to use, however we require you have this ready before the couse starts.
Will I receive a manual?
A downloadable PDF manual with all movements and self release techniques will be available on the platform.
Is the course interactive?
It's so important to us to provide a supportive and interactive experience for those enrolled this training.
Ana guides you through live zoom sessions where there will be an opportunity to engage in Q&A to progress your understanding through experience.
The Moving Fascia teacher training online platform holds all recordings as well as our Moving Fasica teacher training manual.
Our private community forum supports your interaction with Ana and other participants to ask any questions that arise, follow further discussion and stay connected with like minded professionals.
How much of the course is movement based?
In order to enrich your understanding through your own felt sense and experience most of this course is movement based. You will be deepening the embodiment of the repertoire through guided practice and excercise discussion as well as practicing teaching others.
How much of the course is movement and self-release?
This course is based around the first two principles of the Moving Fascia method: SOFTEN/EXPAND. This repertoire is based on self release techniques that lead to self regulation and the gentle fascia focused movements that improve mobility and elasticity. Learn more about the Moving Fascia Principles on our YouTube channel.
Do I need to be a qualified movement practitioner to join the course?
It’s a pre-requisite that you are either a movement teacher or manual therapist and have a minimum basic level of anatomy before joining this course.
How long do I have access to the course for?
You will have your own private access to our online platform with all recordings and resources as well as access to the community forum. You will then have unlimited access to all material for 1 year.
Will I get a certificate?
After successful completion of the final assessment you will receive a certificate as a certified Moving Fascia level 1 teacher.
