Advanced Anatomy, Movement Therapies & IASTM Retreat – October 25-28th, 2018

Self-care for yourself and your patients! Join Dr. Robyn Land, Dr. Nikita Vizniak and Andrew Dow for this all-inclusive, educational and inspiring weekend retreat at Stowell Lake Farm on Saltspring Island.

Deepen your knowledge and your practice! This three-night retreat is for registered massage therapists, yoga teachers 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 on Saltspring 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, ways to correct them and the orthopedic skills needed to support correct clinical treatment. 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-day getaway.
