Movement Mapping 50 HR Certification Course - KENT, UK


Movement Mapping Level 1 & 2 course is a unique training opportunity that deconstructs the psychological and physiological nuances of teaching group and private classes.

Location: Challock Health & Fitness. The Old Vicarage, Canterbury Rd, Challock, Ashford TN25 4BJ

Movement Mapping seamlessly integrates principles from:

Yoga | Human locomotion | Functional Range Conditioning | Progressive Learning & adaptation

Level 1 focuses on teaching group practice. Integrating flow based classes with science- based teaching methodology, principles of progressive training and learning. You will learn 3 unique Movement Mapping classes based on planes of Movement and how to teach specific workshop style practices geared towards a skill or biomechanic.

Level 2 will focus on applying Movement Mapping techniques in private one 2 one training. It is the art of specifying training for your clients unique neuromuscular needs. We’ll cover assessment protocols and prioritization techniques using case studies on how to address common modern Postural patterns with skill and depth. As modern human beings become less mobile in their daily lives there is a massive gap in their movement education. Learn to address this gap and teach an under served market of students that do not benefit from a standard group experience.

Teachers will learn to leverage the latest research and techniques in the fields of anatomy, exercise physiology, and evolution psychology in their training. Utilizing techniques that make your teaching highly adaptive and impactful for any individual or group class. Movement Mapping aims to address the challenges of teaching groups of mixed level students with unique neuromuscular systems.  The method is science informed yet utilizes simple, clear verbal and tactile communication to maximize engagement and retention.

Movement Mapping Certification Course will teach you 3 full Movement Mapping Practices and 40 unique elements within the Movement Mapping system that can be used to create unlimited possibilities for Mind-Body training.

Movement Mapping Practices aim to:

- Rebalance the autonomic nervous system with parasympathetic stimulation practices.

- Retrain the neuromuscular system through targeting Movement Mapping pathways.

- Nourish your connective tissue matrix with Everyday Essentials protocols.

- Rebuild your movement vocabulary with a simple yet diverse assortment of locomotive patterns.

- Optimize your  mind-body connectivity through task oriented training.

- Create true mobility and physical autonomy in every joint through targeted strength and mobility protocols utilizing the Progressive Overload Principle.

- Assess and improve structural balance/tensegrity with specific exercises that marry physical training with our evolutionary biology.

Learn to teach over 40 individual elements of Movement Mapping:

- Parasympathetic stimulation techniques.

- Connective tissue specific Everyday Essentials Protocols.

- Joint specific prehabilitation protocols.

- Skill/strength/technical work protocols.

- Motor maps/locomotion

- Task oriented learning protocols

- Structural balance protocols

- Mobility protocols.

- Movement Mapping Phases of Learning hierarchy.



Who is Movement Mapping creator Justin Wolfer? Justin founded Rise Yoga & Movement Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY in 2014 and will open his second studio Guernsey, Channel Islands.  Justin studies has studied regularly for 10 years with his spiritual teacher Bhakti master Raghunath and now teaches the anatomy and kinesiology sections of Raghunath's teacher trainings. After immersing himself in Yoga Justin also found his passion for interdisciplinary movement studies. As his movement education diversified he sought out more information on the sciences of human locomotion and human training (both cognitive learning and tissue adaptation).  He has studied with Tom Myers, Founder of Movement Trains; Ido Portal, founder of Ido Portages Method; and is a certified Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist and Functional Release Spine Specialist.  Movement Mapping is his attempt at organizing a complete training system that simply and seamlessly combines 10 years of research into Yoga, interdisciplinary movement arts and science based training principles. Movement Mapping addresses many of the challenges of teaching mixed level practices to students with unique needs and capacities. The Movement Mapping System is science informed yet meant to be simple, impactful and engaging for its practitioners.

Who is this course for? This is a certification course for Yoga Teachers, Movement Teachers, Pilates Teachers  and Physical Trainers.  Students are welcome to attend the course for their own practice.  The information is meant to integrate and inform whatever practices you are already doing and provide new tools for your movement practices. We hope to provide more tools and information that will aid teachers in applying their methods with greater skill, greater student satisfaction and increased income potential.
