YOGA ALLIANCE ACCREDITED


Workshop Topic – “The Truth about the Core”

  • Sunday 27th September 2015
  • Venue: Manchester Yoga Central
  • Time : 10- 5pm ( 6 hours lessons plus one hour lunch)
  • CPD : 6 hours
  • Cost : £145 or Early Bird £99 ( 4 weeks prior to workshop date)
  • Pre-requisite Reading: “Fascia, Anatomy & Movement”-Jo Avison, “Bowen Unravelled”- Julian Baker

Workshop description:

Flattening your abs and teaching core exercises in a class requires much more than simply exercising. If you suffer from IBS, Cohn’s or have fungus and parasites, this will inhibit the bodies ability to fire the core which will then be overtaken by more excited muscle groups and areas of the body. If you also do not have optimal posture and function, the body cannot take action.

Aims: Enable participants to develop and enhance their personal and teaching skills, both in practice and theory. Benefit and protect the public by encouraging informed and up-to-date teachers and practitioners. Raise the standards of teaching throughout the UK and worldwide. I will also lead you through a sixty minute Yoga, Pilates and functional training flow class. This workshop will take your through an ingenious flow and that will educate, invigorate and maintain mind/body connection.

Workshop Topic – “Hips & Hamstrings”

  • Sunday 15th November 2015
  • Venue: Manchester Yoga Central
  • Time : 10- 5pm ( 6 hours lessons plus one hour lunch)
  • CPD: 6 hours
  • Cost : £145 or Early Bird £99 ( 4 weeks prior to workshop date )
  • Pre-requisite Reading: “Fascia, Anatomy & Movement”-Jo Avison, “Bowen Unravelled”- Julian Baker

Your hip flexors and hamstring muscles are one of the most important groups of muscles necessary for long term mobility, stability and safety of your lower body. Healthy, conditioned and well maintained hip flexors and hamstrings are necessary for preventing hip, knee and lumbar issues. Acute or chronic pain in these areas can signify a restriction and compensation of movement. If symptoms are found to be structural in nature, then it is important to understand both why and what can be done to correct them. Most low back pain and sciatica problems will benefit from a regular routine of hamstring movement. Restriction in the hamstrings places increased stress on the low back and often aggravates or even causes some of the conditions that lead to low back pain and/or sciatica pain.

Aims: To enable students to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to become effective, professional teachers. To provide a basis for the continued study of the anatomy and the moving body, principles and practice of freedom of movement.

Specific Objectives:

BY THE END OF THE COURSE THE STUDENTS SHOULD BE ABLE TO: 

  1. Teach preparatory movements prior to traditional asana/rehab practice, including joint mobilising and muscle warming techniques.

  6. Design and utilise a scheme of movements to progress clients over a period of weeks.
  7. Assess students’ progress and achievements.
  8. Evaluate their own needs and teaching skills.
  9. Recognise the problems associated with different posture types and ROM in the client
  10. Create a safe working environment for the teaching of a class, which must involve an interchange of information between teacher and student.

Workshop Topic – “Spinal Revolution” 

  • Sunday 7th February 2016
  • Venue:Manchester Yoga Central
  • Time : 10- 5pm ( 6 hours lessons plus one hour lunch)
  • CPD: 6 hours
  • Cost : £145 or Early Bird £99 ( 4 weeks prior to workshop date)
  • Pre-requisite Reading: “Fascia, Anatomy & Movement”-Jo Avison, “Bowen Unravelled”- Julian Baker

With 76 % of back surgeries failing more and more people are turning to movement therapies to help alleviate pain. Low back pain is very common. Fortunately, most people find that it only lasts a few days or weeks. The exact cause of low back pain is often difficult to find. Tension, soreness and/or stiffness are common symptoms. Joints, connective tissue and discs may contribute to the symptoms. The thoracic spine is built for rotation, flexion, and extension. It is highly mobile – or, rather, it has the potential for lots of mobility. Because of its mobility, the thoracic spine must be used, must be moved. But it has to be known. If people are unable to visualize and feel the movement of the thoracic spine, or if they’re unable to even grasp the concept of its existence, they’ll just attempt to twist, rotate, flex, and bend with something familiar to them: the lumbar spine. That’s bad news. A movement system that gently works the entire body opening energy pathways through rhythmic, spiraling movements.

Aims: Lead a workshop using the chair as a base for support and balance. Direct the group to grasp and maintain bandha connection for back support without restricting diaphragmatic breathing. Challenge the group even further by introducing distal limb movement and directing the group into a smooth rhythmic chain of flowing movements.

Specific Objectives:

By the end of the lesson students should/will be able to:

  1. Perform flexion, extension, lateral flexion and rotation of the spine safely in accordance with the student’s range of motion and mobility.
  2. Co-ordinate the breath with movement using an inhale to sustain and hold a movement and an exhale to release and glide into the next phase of the movement.
  3. Pass the body through coronal, saggital and transverse planes using lumbar / hip flexion and torso/lateral rotation.
  4. Use ballistic, passive and active stretches on the hips, as shown by the teacher in the class.
  5. Raise awareness of the glut muscles and hip joints, particularly the variation in structure  and ROM in relation to stabilization and core support.
  6. Coordinate a limbering sequence in time with the music to raise the heart rate using a cross crawl variation and non-traditional spinal moves.
  7. Demonstrate a modified version of various asana/rehab movements as practised in the class from memory.

This workshop is open to Yoga/Pilates teachers, Movement/Manual therapists, Physios, Chiropractors, Osteopaths and weekend warriors.


Courses

Yoga & Pilates in Amateur & Professional Sport

  • Venue: Manchester Yoga Central
  • Times: 10-5pm daily ( 6 hours lessons plus one hour lunch)
  • CPD: 12 hours

  • Course Pre-requite Reading: “Fascia, Anatomy & Movement”-Jo Avison, “Bowen Unravelled”- Julian Baker

Playing sport and doing regular exercise is good for your health, but can sometimes result in injuries. “Each year 1-1.5 million people attend an A&E department in Britain due to a sporting injury” (Nicholl et al 1991 cited in Boyce and Quigley 2004)”.  A substantial number of amateur sports athletes believe that the only treatment pathway available for them to get pain relief and advice is to attend A&E (Grimble et al, 1993) leading to approximately 5,600 a day Accident and Emergency (A&E) department attendances within the UK for sports related injuries (Cook et al, 2003). According to Falvey et al (2009) this accounts for the majority of the workload of an A&E department, with the highest number of attendances being on Monday as a result of weekend sports fixtures.

Sports injuries can be caused by:

  • An accident – such as a fall or heavy blow
  • Not warming up properly before exercising
  • Using inappropriate equipment or poor technique
  • Pushing yourself too hard

Almost any part of the body can be injured, including the muscles, bones, joints and connective tissues (tendons and ligaments). The ankles and knees are some of the most commonly affected areas.

Some of the sports that we will cover are:

  1. Football
  2. Rugby
  3. Running
  4. Cycling
  5. Tennis
  6. Basketball
  7. Cricket
  8. Golf
  9. Hockey
  10. Riding
  11. Surfing
  12. Skiing
  13. Sailing
  14. Swimming
  15. Climbing

Aims: Whilst prevention of injury is certainly desirable, the reality that athletes will be injured is part of sport participation. Thus, the sport rehabilitator or movement practitioner must always be prepared to administer the care for which they are trained. The aim of this unit is to provide learners with an overview of injury prevention and prehabilitation using Yoga/Pilates and functional movement.

Objectives:

  1. Prepare an individual to successfully participate in sport using expertise from multiple specialities.
  2. Managing the injuries that occur to sport participants also requires input from many specialists. Enable the practitioner to understand and work along side other professionals e.g. coach, club manager, conditioning specialist, bio mechanist, physiotherapist, nutrition- its, exercise physiologist, chiropodist, chiropractor and strength etc.
  3. Be able to understand that before beginning any rehabilitation or strengthening exercise program it is important to get an accurate diagnosis of your injury or understand your training aims.
  4. Outline strengthening and rehabilitation exercises for various parts of the body.
  5. Most rehabilitation programs will go through and acute stage, immediately after injury, a middle or rehabilitation stage where the aim is to regain normal movement and strength and finally a functional or sports specific phase where exercises are more relevant to the activity. Prepare the athlete for the final stage.
  6.  Know about a range of sports injuries and their symptoms.
  7.  Know how to apply methods of treating sports injuries.
  8. Raise awareness of static and dynamic stretching and when to use .
