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”
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.
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.
Informative; thought-provoking; absorbing; beneficial on a personal mind-body level but also providing a wealth of ideas which will inform my teaching.
I have greatly increased my anatomical understanding and practice which I have been able to apply in my teaching and see real results.
What I wanted to learn! Now I feel more confident with my knowledge of visceral fascia and the connections to myofascial musculoskeletal connective tissue.
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...)
Incorporate a connective tissue approach into your existing practice.
For yoga teachers
For movement teachers
For Pilates teachers
For manual therapists
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.
The course will be streamed live via zoom and there will be an opportunity to engage in Q&A as well as join breakout rooms to progress your understanding through experience. The Moving Fascia teacher training online platform holds all recordings and is a space to interact with Ana and ask any questions that arise after the from days have finished and you’re following your own self-practice.
Ana will also hold a follow up Q&A zoom session to discuss any queries related to the course sessions.
There is a private community forum on the platform for further discussion
The Moving Fascia teacher community for useful resources as well as a way to 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?
The online platform will be available with all recordings after the 4 day training has finished. You will then have unlimited access to all material for 1 year.
Do I need to take the final assessment?
You will receive a certificate of attendance after completion of the 4 day training. In order to become a fully certified Moving Fascia level 1 teacher you will need to complete the final assessment 12 weeks after the 4 day training.
After successful completion of this exam you will receive a certificate as a certified Moving Fascia level 1 teacher.
