A series of online workshops containing the theoretical concepts of muscle chains and myofascial lines. The theory is bought into real life via muscle and movement assessment strategies which will help you better help your clients with non-optimal movement patterns, which often lead to, or are the cause, of painful pathology.

Regardless of whether you are a movement professional, Physiotherapist or other bodyworker you will gain key knowledge to apply immediately within your working environment. Understanding the root causes behind dysfunctional movement will make providing a solution so much easier using your pre-existing techniques and know-how.



  • To understand and be able to apply the basic concepts of core assessment and optimisation strategies from a muscle chains perspective.
  • To appreciate the fundamental importance of the diaphragm and breathing patterns in the optimal function of the core
  • To take-away some practical exercises and tricks to achieve core and breathing optimisation for your clients



The course is divided into episodes and each one of them forms a lesson.

The lessons consist of a set of videos about the theoretical part and different videos with the practical demonstrations of the techniques.

The student will have access to the course from the date indicated and will have 18 months to complete it. To pass the training, you must watch and study all audiovisual content and pass the final exam.
