These on-going interactive webinars are designed for personal trainers and movement professionals who wish to expand their knowledge around pain education and pain-care for the active population. Each webinar is unique, and will explore anatomy and physiology, best practices for applying this new found knowledge to the training floor or daily home practice. These webinars are deep dives into how to approach re-establishing safety through movement re-education when working with people experiencing pain.
COVID & beyond
Breathing plays an essential role in the COVID-19 recovery process, and it is changing the way we live, move and train. That's why I have created this webinar – to give you all the tools you need to feel more confident communicating, supporting and educating your clients on optimal breathing strategies for prevention and recovery on the training floor and out into the world.
This webinar begins with a brief unpacking of what COVID-19 is and "what you should know" regarding implications and considerations for movement professionals and personal training.
We lay the foundation with an in-depth tour of the respiratory system, emphasizing the importance of the nervous system and the diaphragm's function in re-establishing safety to reduce fear and anxiety with a trauma-informed care approach.
If you're not assessing, you're guessing. You'll explore one of the most scientifically backed breathing assessments that movement professionals and personal trainers can implement right away. The B-IQ, founded by Dr. Belisa Vranich, is a functional measurement of respiratory capacity and is intuitive, practical and useful in training and can be adapted to a virtual session.
You'll gain in-depth knowledge on how-to guide and educate your clients towards the prevention of COVID through understanding "breathing through the mask" and the importance of training the breath, just like we do any other body part of a functional pattern.
You'll gain in-depth knowledge on how to support, guide and help your clients restore diaphragm function and increase lung capacity during the recovery process. The key to healthy and resilient lungs is to build up the ability to breathe deeply during any activity, not just while at rest.
Lastly, you'll learn over ten different fundamental breath practices and techniques and how and when to use them as a corrective-based prescription in training or in your daily home practice to offer peace of mind.
