Who is this for?
This course is intended for those aspiring to integrate the methods and principles of modelFIT to their teaching practices. Rooted in mindfulness, dynamic strength and functional science, the modelFIT method pioneers a new way to move and a new way to think about moving.
Over this course, we will cover the guiding principles of anatomy, teaching techniques and what makes modelFIT a unique and successful experience.
We will learn in a variety of ways, with reading and discussion being our primary modality. We will reinforce those resources with movement laboratories, practice teaching sessions and masterclasses.
This course will be challenging, inspiring and a lot of fun. We will all leave with a greater understanding of the human experience of movement and how to communicate it with other people.
