In this workshop you will hone your critical thinking skills and put into practice all that you have learned on your Essentrics journey so far! In Levels 1 and 2, your focus was learning the principles of how Essentrics rebalances the body. Now as you embark on Levels 3 and 4, you’re ready to develop your critical thinking skills by drawing on your base of knowledge in Essentrics anatomy, as well as the many hours of teaching under your belt. This workshop will inspire you to apply your knowledge and enhance your current teaching methods.

Apply your knowledge to your classes with confidence

Together we will assess common student movement patterns and muscle imbalances and learn to think outside the box in guiding students to meet key objectives. You will be encouraged to think beyond your training materials and problem solve on your feet as you work towards applying a more comprehensive approach to your teaching. This workshop is designed to help teachers build trust in their own critical thinking skills to advance their use of Essentrics theory and techniques with the goal of delivering enhanced results to their students!

Feel connected, supported and inspired! This is a live online workshop you can follow from your home. The maximum of 30 participants allows for a personalized group learning experience. Spots are limited – sign up now to secure yours.

What's Included?

  • Small breakout groups to analyze common mistakes seen in students. We will explore what could be causing the movement patterns and how cueing techniques, demonstrating exercises and communicating with students about the desired objectives can help them achieve desired results.
  • Comparison of Essentrics TV/Classical Stretch sequences showing how the same exercise can be taught differently using different techniques to achieve specific objectives.
  • Demonstration of how to work with clients using a comprehensive teaching approach.
