Slings Myofascial Training

We foster independent thinking and we really want you to understand each exercise, so you can practice, modify and teach with clear intention and confidence – and have some fun along the way! If you are a curious mover and individualistic teacher who likes to understand exercises and functional sequencing, Slings Myofascial Training is for you.

The Education Program

The Slings Myofascial Training education program provides movement professionals, bodyworkers, and therapists with science-informed, experience-proven tools of immediate practical value. 

Anatomy Trains in Motion and Slings Essentials lay the foundation of the Slings Myofascial Training education pathway. Anatomy Trains in Motion focusses on the anatomical and functional aspects of the myofascial meridian body map. This unique course is endorsed by Thomas Myers. Slings Essentials translates fascia research into practical application. 12 fascial movement qualities, 12 related myofascial training techniques, and 12 training aims are explained and experienced in a comprehensive manner that accommodates understanding.

The practice-oriented Slings in Motion courses contain over 90 fascia-focussed exercises. Movement execution and breath, key points, cueing, functional anatomy, as well as aims and benefits, are described in a way that sets them apart from other exercises. In Slings BodyReading & Movement Strategies, structural patterns are ‘read’, mapped, and rebalanced with clearly defined, congruent exercise sequences. Slings Teaching is the course that ties it all together.

The Practice

Slings Myofascial Training is a contemporary, fascia-focussed, body-minded movement method. This integral mat-based training can be enhanced and adapted with massage balls or other small, supportive props

The focus lies on the health-enhancing qualities of fascia, which contribute to the balance of your posture, movement efficiency, and vitality. The contrasting movement sequences contain dynamic and rhythmical, as well as soft and melting exercises in all body positions.

This method is based on new findings in fascia research and movement science. Furthermore, Slings implies the Anatomy Trains concept, which portrays the body-wide interconnectedness of muscles and fascia in myo-fascial slings (“Slings” for short).

The sense of well-being and freedom after a Slings class is priceless!
