Tissue Release Specialist: Level 1 Training Hybrid

The issue IS our tissue! Of the many injuries we see in gyms, Yoga studios, or even on the job, most are a result of restricted or unhealthy muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia - connective tissues. During this seminar students will learn the TRS Level 1 principles for tissue health, assessment, and techniques to release localized pain, restriction and increase circulation. The skills covered during this weekend will include: the Masters Institute Integrated Self-Myofascial Release (SMR) along with Integrated Active Release techniques, and zone specific Integrated Movement Maps for movement efficiency. This workshop is specifically designed for Yoga teachers, Personal Trainers, and Somatic Therapists, although anyone interested in deepening their understanding and how to care for their own tissues would benefit from this course.

The Endless Web

Specifically I would like students to review

Chapter 8: Myofascial Structures - The Spine as an Example of "Living Anatomy".

Please answer the following questions:

1. How extensive is Connective Tissue within the body?

2. Define "Point of Attachment" for muscles - how do they alter the quality of movement?

3. How do muscular contractions affect the Connective Tissues?

Come to a personal understanding of the statement in Chapter 16, page 83: "Proprioception is the summation of our physical history into the moment of present activity."

4. Can you identify some of your physical history that informs present kinesthetic limitations or abilities?

5. Finally, what is your dominant perceptual style (pg. 84)?
