About this Workshop:

The Fascial Release for Structural Balance (FRSB) series, based on the book of the same name, is a set of intensive soft-tissue technique courses,– divided into functional regions. Each course thoroughly conveys 15 – 20 technique ‘templates’, designed for versatile application for the different patterns your clients bring to you. The courses fully explain the intent and scope of each move. Come out of these courses with new tools for soft-tissue release.

Each class includes:

• Relevant anatomy for the area – short intensive and integrated presentations assemble the best figures from multiple sources, including brand new learning tools such as video of fascial dissections and palpation of the relevant structures to convey the information in an inspiring and understandable fashion.

• BodyReading (visual assessment) – the common postural and movement implications – how to see and ‘read’ them in the intricacy of individual patterns

• Fascial Release Techniques – each technique is fully laid out for intent and ‘feel’, with plenty of time for practice, ensuring that you can apply these methods immediately in your practice.

Learning Objectives:
1. Students will be able to palpate, assess and treat various areas of the body, based on the regional focus of the course
2. Students will understand the biomechanical implications of fascial anatomy at a more advanced level
3. Student will enhance their myofascial release, palpation, and postural assessment skills

The workshops can be taken in any order once you have first attended either an Anatomy Trains or BodyReading™ weekend.

The Breath – Anatomy and Therapeutics
