Take a deep dive into the world of mobility with a 6 hour, 6 AFLCA CEC's day offered by MOC FIT International.

This informative and practical day will focus on dynamic mobility with specific scientific techniques to train the active

aging client - who does not want to slow down due to pain and injuries. Also geared to all levels of athletes.

Move beyond traditional isometric stretching and unleash your body's dynamic power to move freely without

pain. Learn the concepts to help your clients move and feel better in life. Leave the day with an abundance of 

ideas to share with your client or group.

Workshop One - Introduction into Essentrics

9:15-12:00 pm

Essentrics is a dynamic workout based on the theories of Miranda Esmonde White.

The program simultaneously lengthens and strengthens every muscle in the body, resulting in greater joint 

mobility and long, lean muscle. It leaves the participant feeling completely rebalanced.

Essentrics draws on the flowing movements of Tai Chi which create health and balance, the strengthening

theories behind ballet which creates long, lean flexible muscles and the healing principles of physiotherapy

which create a pain free body.

Workshop Two - Mobility 101 with Cars, ELDOA and more...

12:30-3:00 pm

As clients age, flexibility decreases. Immobility and inflexibility increases movement inefficiencies, which create postural imbalances and leave the body prone to pain and overuse injuries. This interactive session focuses on comprehensive strategies to identify human movement system impairment and the innovative application of targeted techniques to increase soft-tissue/fascial extensibility and improve joint range of motion. The Mobility 101 workshop will target the stability/mobility relationship that balance the body's structures with techniques from many disciplines.
