This two-day workshop provides an intensive immersion into connective tissue manipulation. Over the two days you will learn the first 3 sessions of the MIPAWORK 10 session protocol. The first 3 sessions include specific techniques to address myofascial imbalances in the neck, shoulder girdles, ribcage, back, pelvis, and legs.
For massage therapists, chiropractors, physiotherapists, athletic therapists, and osteopaths, this training will dramatically improve your results with the people in your practice.
You’ll also learn several mindfulness-awarness practices to help you slow down the speed of every day life, and to become more present and fully embodied. These techniques are seamlessly integrated into the 3 session protocol, giving your more calm, steadiness, and clarity, while simultaneously bringing more effectiveness into your practice of manual therapy. The MIPAWORK protocol draws from 21 years of practice in the tradition of Dr. Ida Rolf, combined with the view and practice of mindfulness.
Our teaching methodology offers a balanced approach of theory, hands-on practice, and one to one mentorship with the instructor. In a nutshell, you learn the theory, practice the theory in real time, and refine your technique with personal guidance from the instructor. This classic way of learning – theory, practice, and refinement – is the hallmark of all our workshops, and is the best way we know to help you have a transformative learning experience.
Level 2 offers a review of Level 1, and instructs how to perform sessions 4 – 7, which bring further balance to the legs and pelvis, spine and cranium. Level 2 is a three-day workshop.
Level 3 instructs in sessions 8, 9, and 10, completing the process of restoring the body’s inherent balance. Level 3 is a three-day workshop.
