Advanced Anatomy & Movement Therapies Retreat

March 11th-14th

Pāhoa, Big Island, Hawaii

Develop your self-care for yourself and your patients, while deepening your knowledge and your practice! Join us for this all-inclusive, educational and inspiring retreat on the Big Island of Hawaii.

This three-night retreat (with option to extend to a full 6-night retreat by joining us for the yoga retreat portion afterwards) is for registered massage therapists, yoga teachers, acupuncturists and anyone else with a keen interest in movement therapies. With days filled with yoga, continuing education lectures and delicious meals, your time with us in Hawaii will inspire, rejuvenate and restore your body, mind and spirit!

The retreat program focuses on anatomy, kinesiology and bio-mechanical components. Our evidence-based approach combines these topics with tissue-specific identification and injury-based pose modifications. We will review muscles, joints and fascia, reinforcing how compensation in one region causes imbalance in other regions. We will identify prime movers, synergists and antagonists though movement therapies. You will learn to incorporate reciprocal inhibition and relaxation techniques to create greater healing potential in your patients or students.

The primary focus is to identify common musculoskeletal imbalances and ways to correct them. We teach you to apply these to functional movements , poses and in clinical practice.

By integrating professional handouts and resources that you can use with clients and students, hands-on learning, and lots of laughter, this course will be a wonderful balance between education, fun and relaxation.

As we step out of the mind and into the body, we will spend lots of time on our yoga mats linking knowledge and movement into an uplifting, transformative 3 or 6-night getaway.
