What is SomaTraining?

SomaTraining is a unique methodology to rehabilitation and strength & conditioning built on osteopathic principles. It’s born from the paradigm of complexity, similarly to the human body. The SomaTraining program consists of in-depth lectures combined with practice periods where students learn specific exercise techniques while they develop a more complex way of understanding the human body. These techniques are indispensable tools of dedicated therapists and trainers to effectively help patients get rid of pain and assist athletes reach maximum performance.

Who should attend?

Physiotherapist, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Exercise and Movement Practitioners, Experienced Personal Trainers, Pilates and Yoga teachers. SomaTraining courses should be the essential part of the continuing and post graduate education of any health and fitness professional who seek to deliver unparalleled result to their patients and clients.

ELDOA

(Longitudinal Osteoarticular Decoaptation Stretches, is taken from the French Etirements Longitudinaux avec Decoaptation Osteo-Articulaire).After learning to treat the centralized joints of the body with the general ELDOA course, you will learn to treat the joints in the periphery with very precise postures, which target relief in these specific articulations.

The goal will be to decoapt and normalize the peripheral joints. As before, once you have learned these, they take only a minute a day to perform.

Seminar Outline:

- Background and methodology
- Thoracic-Cage ELDOA practice
- Coxo-Femoral ELDOA practice
- Shoulder ELDOA practice
- Pelvic ELDOA practice (sacroiliac joints and symphysis pubis)

Global Postural Stretching (GPS)

DATE: 11-13th of January 2019
LOCATION: Danubius Hotel Regents Park, Central London, UK
INSTRUCTOR: Guy Voyer DO (France, Canada), Peter Bodi
COURSE HOURS:
Friday: 12:00pm-8pm
Saturday: 9am-6pm
Sunday: 8:30am-5pm

Whatever your methods of pre-season conditioning, training, or re-education, it is necessary to place the body part being solicited, into a global posture. To rediscover the efficiency and fluidity of a movement, the GPS allows a perfect linking between the joint, the muscle and their fasciae. These specific postures must be meticulously performed and are adapted to each part of the body. The positions can be used in training and conditioning as well as in pre-season training. They are equally of indubitable efficiency for all re- education programs.

For example, after an accident or an illness, all therapeutic treatment must be completed by a rehabilitation of all activities of daily life, in the personal life; the sporting life; and the professional life.

There are thus four big stages to follow:
- The first is curative; by the surgeon, doctor, osteopath; or chiropractor according to their methodology.
- The second allows the patient to validate the therapeutic action above by analytic auto- normalization exercises such as myofascial stretching, ELDOA, circulatory or respiratory exercises, proprioception exercises, awareness training, etc
- The third stage brings in global postural exercises to give to the patient a general integration back into daily life, and sporting and professional activities. It is these global postural stretches of the trunk; and upper and lower limbs that are included in the program of the advanced personal trainer.
- The fourth stage is the return to normal activities of the individual in question.

Proprioception and Awareness

DATE: 11-13th of May 2018
LOCATION : Central London
INSTRUCTOR : Guy Voyer DO (France, Canada)
COURSE HOURS :
Friday : 12:30pm-8pm
Saturday: Group exercise class exercises class 9-10am, Workshop 10-6pm
Sunday: Group exercises class 8:30-9:30am, Workshop 9:30am-5pm

Proprioception: The physiology that controls an articulation depends on numerous control mechanisms located in the muscle tendons, ligaments and articular capsule. Therefore, it is advisable to train these "micro-computers" to increase or revive control of a joint. Following a sprain, to treat arthrosis, to recover articular mobility, and to improve efficiency of movement, these various aspects of proprioception must be trained.

“However, this work must be very precise. Because it is not the joint that is trained as a whole but a specific ligament or part of the capsule within that joint.”

This class will teach the hundreds of exercises that may be used throughout the body for this proprioceptive work.

Awareness: How can an articulation be trained, a muscle strengthened, or a posture corrected, if the brain does not know the area being treated? How does a spine remain straight, if the feeling of being straight is skewed? The cortex must be trained to become acquainted with and recognize every area of the body. A strict methodology involving four progression factors is indispensable to really becoming familiar with the pelvis; the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine; and the various diaphragms.

You will learn how to apply the very important and often neglected aspect of awareness in your daily practice.

Seminar Outline:

Background and methodology
Proprioceptive work for the lower limb:
- The joint and the ligaments of the hip, knee, ankle and foot
Proprioceptive work for the upper limb:
- The joint and the ligaments of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand and fingers
Proprioceptive work for the pelvis and the spine:
- Sacro-iliac joint, Pubic Symphysis, Lumbar, Thoracic and Cervical Spine
Proprioceptive work for the scapular girdle and the TMJ

This course consists of in-depth lectures combined with practice periods.

Incorporating these unique techniques into any rehabilitation and training program will ensure exceptional results in both pain management and performance enhancement.

Myofascial Stretching

DATE: 15-17th of December 2017
LOCATION: Danubius Hotel Regents Park, Central London, UK
INSTRUCTOR : Guy Voyer DO (France, Canada), Peter Bodi
COURSE HOURS :
Friday : 12:30pm-8pm
Saturday : Exercise class 9am-10am, Workshop 10am-6pm
Sunday : Exercise class 8:30am-9:30am, Workshop 9:30am-5pm

We have believed for a long time that we knew how to properly stretch muscles. The question is: How do we stretch a muscle when it is sheathed in a leather casing? Stretching a muscle is only effective once the "skin", the fascia that covers it is free and functional. Myofascial stretches respect the anatomy of the muscles, their aponeuroses as well as their function. At this point, the analytical study of the fascial chains allows for an incredibly effective stretch position.

This course consists of in-depth lectures combined with practice periods giving you numerous new stretches while challenging and improving your knowledge of tensegrity biomechanics and related fascial anatomy. Incorporating these unique techiques into any rehabilitation and training program will ensure exceptional results for your clients in both pain management and performace enhancement.

This course will cover the correct method of stretching for all of the muscles listed below:

  In this course Dr VOYER will spend the first day lecturing on the importance of a correct gravity line, addressing the very anatomy and physiology that are responsible in managing our centre of gravity.  Our body's gravity line has its implications on our muscolo-skeletal as well as our visceral health and function. Following that, he will spend the rest of the day and the second day elaborating on the mechanics of a biomechanically sound squat with lots of practice, relating it to visceral health, energy consumption, common orthopedic pathologies, corrective exercise and athletic performance.

  The third day we are taking a thorough look at posturology, with specific tests that will help you identify and address the anatomy in need of correction. How often do you test someone's eyes when trying to correct their posture? Dr Voyer will cover various techniques that you’ll be able to use when assessing a patient or client to help you give a direction you’ll need to take with them.

 This is a workshop where what is taught in the lecture is being practiced in the practice sessions giving you a kinaesthetic experience at the same time. 

You will learn:

When done properly it can help back pain and knee pain, when done the way it is generally taught and performed by many at the gym, it can create pain and dysfunction. An accurately performed squat is an essential part of many back, hip and knee rehabilitation programme.

This course consists of in-depth lectures combined with practice periods where students learn the specific progressions and variations of squatting. Incorporating these unique techiques into any rehabilitation and/or training program will ensure exceptional results for your clients in both pain management and performace enhancement.
