Offering the best of Yoga & Mobility Training
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.
Learn to teach over 40 individual elements of Movement Mapping:
- Parasympathetic stimulation techniques.
- Connective tissue specific Everyday Essentials Protocols.
- Movement Mapping Release techniques.
- 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.
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.
How we do it online:
Work at your own pace. Once you successfully register for the course you will receive login information. Complete each practice familiarizing your self with the techniques. In between each practice will be further explanation of the most important technical components of the practice. You will retake the practice after studying the important components and then move to the next practice. Once you complete the practices you will go the lecture portion of the course explaining the techniques further and how they integrate with one another. Justin is available to answer any questions you have along the way.
Becoming a certified Movement Mapping teacher - In order to receive the certification to be a Movement Mapping certified teacher you must submit short videos of the essential components of the course. There will be instructions at the end on how to do this. Justin is happy to assist in learning the sequences and mastering your approach to teaching them.
*There is no extra charge for the certification.
*certification to teach this system upon demonstrating sufficient application of the principles learned during the training.
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's Included in the cost of tuition?
- 4 full sequences, 3 workshop style breakdowns of the handstand, backhanding and forward bending.
- You'll learn over 40 unique elements aimed at developing the neuromuscular system, joint optimization, structural balance and self expression.
- Training manual outlining the techniques covered and the research behind the practices.
- 12 hrs of online lectures covering the techniques and applications.
What does level 2 cover?
The Movement Mapping Personal Coaching CPD 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 6 different templates filled with regressions/progressions so that you are equipped to specifically train:
About Movement Mapping Founder 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 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.
