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.

Myofascial Release Module (60hrs)

An in-depth look at the science behind the role of the fascia and use of myofascial release techniques within the yoga setting. Adding to our Chinese Medicine & myofascial release trainings, this training will dive deeper into the current understanding of the fascia as well as the therapeutic application of myofascial release techniques to assist our students. We will look the function & dysfunction of the fascia as well as the therapeutic application of myofascial release techniques to assist your students. Identifying common areas and trigger points in the body that with simple, mindful self-application can be a great tool for teachers and students alike.

This module will be a more in-depth look at the application & use of these techniques with protocols, flows and how to incorporate these into a yoga class as well as with privates.  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.

This 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. You will leave with a deeper understanding that you can apply to your private & group classes. This module is open to anyone looking to use myofascial release personally or within a therapeutic setting.

This module counts as 60 hours towards your 500hr or 1000hr certification. You must be an approved 500/1000hr teacher in order to attend this training. If you would like to attend and have not yet been approved, please fill out our online application by clicking the button on this page.
