Movement Mapping focuses on improving the neuromuscular communication and utilizes the latest research on exercise physiology.
Who’s this course for?
Yoga teachers, massage therapists, dance teachers, movement teachers, martial artist instructors, physiotherapist.
This course is for students and teachers interested in diversifying their practices and offering their students more tools for improving motor function, biomechanics, joint function, nervous system fluency and increasing movement complexity. Attendees will learn how to train and improve each joint utilizing progressive training principles, Progressive Learning Principles and connective tissue mobilizations to maximize tissue health.
What does the 50 hr Course Cover?
The first weekend covers the Movement Mapping Level 1 Certification. 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.
The second weekend covers the Movement Mapping Level 2 Certification. Level 2 focuses 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 how to assess and choose techniques using case studies that demonstrate 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. You’ll learn 4 different templates filled with regressions/progressions so that you are equipped to specifically train:
Movement Mapping Certification Course will provide you with 3 complete Movement Mapping Practices based on planes of movement.

About Movement Mapping Founder Justin Wolfer
Justin founded Rise Yoga & Movement Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY in 2014 and opened his second studio in 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 Portal 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 simplies 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 prioritizes simplicity to maximize its impact and engage its practitioners in the process of self-development.
