Why this course was created:
Movement Mapping was created to address a specific problem. As a Yoga teacher of 12 years I noticed that many students weren’t being served by the practice. It wasn’t specific enough to address their needs. Movement Mapping aims to address the effects of modern technology and modern sedentary lifestyle. In short, modern human beings are under-stimulated physically and over-stimulated mentally.
Whether you decide to run, lift weights, do Yoga, CrossFit, anything else this will stand in the way of progress and raise the probability of injury.
Movement Mapping methodically addresses the tolls that modern sedentary living takes on the body and nervous system. The results are a return of range of motion, resiliency in the joints, reduced pain complaints, balance, coordination, and deep relaxation and recovery.

Is Movement Mapping like Yoga?
From my perspective Movement Mapping is a Yoga practice however it does not come from a Yoga lineage. It is a mat based practiced that transfers seamlessly to a yoga studio setting. It focuses on proper breath cultivation, parasympathetic stimulation, self-inquiry and introspective practice. My aim is that its familiar enough to a yoga student expecting a standard mat based practice but introduces them to new tools and perspectives on training such as joint mobilizations, specific mobility training, task based learning, different planes of movement and human locomotive patterns.
Is Movement Mapping Recognized World Wide?
The method is recognized through the Yoga Alliance and I have currently taught this course in 8 different countries. After completing the course you will be listed as a movement Mapping Certified Teacher.
