Slings Diploma €295

In the course of your Slings education you have been building strong skills – bravo from all of us at art of motion! The Slings Diploma is an assessment of your skills and knowledge. It is also an opportunity for you to refine these skills, clarify questions, and consolidate your understanding. The assessment day is a dynamic mix of teaching, moving, reflection, and knowledge distillation.

During the assessment we want to observe, hear, and sense your understanding of the Slings Myofascial Training concept, as opposed to having you recite information from your short-term memory. As a modern institute for adult education we firmly believe that an assessment should sharpen and deepen your subject matter knowledge. We do not subscribe to testing your reading skills in twisted multiple-choice questions, demoralizing you, or overtaxing your body by setting unrealistic movement goals.

We encourage you to make the most of your Slings Myofascial Training education by completing the Slings Diploma course.

Movement Strategies for Pelvic Pain - Michelle Lyons €199Purchase required to enroll

What do conditions like Endometriosis, Pudendal Neuralgia, Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Coccydynia have in common? Or Vulvodynia, Interstitial Cystitis or Bladder Pain Syndrome?
They all fall under the umbrella diagnosis of Chronic Pelvic Pain – a syndrome that affects millions of women worldwide.

What do we as movement specialists need to know about these conditions individually and collectively?

Do you know how to screen and when to refer on to specialists?

Is there evidence to support the use of therapeutic movement and mindfulness to decrease pain, increase function and help restore self efficacy?

What sort of indications, contra-indications and precautions do we need to be aware of?

This one day workshop will give a brief overview of chronic pelvic pain in women and how we can safely and effectively use our skills as movement specialists (whether we’re from the world of physio, yoga or Pilates)

There will be a mix of lecture presentations, with a review of the relevant functional anatomy and practical movement sessions, which will give you a toolbox to discuss these issues with clients, a checklist of red flags for pelvic floor over activity and movement strategies to help women with chronic pelvic pain on their journey to return to return to health.
