Slings Myofascial Training in movement.
Just over a month ago I went from Melbourne’s four seasons in one day to Bali’s overpowering heat and humidity all in the name of Slings Myofascial Training in movement. But what exactly is Slings Myofascial Training? How does it impact Create Movement’s long term goals? What are the benefits for you?
Fascia is often defined as a type of connective tissue. Connective tissue is a generic term for all the different tissue types in the body such as ligaments, tendons, muscles, cartilage, and bones. Connective tissue supports the body structure, holds joints and organs in place and transports signals within the body.
As we age, our connective tissue stiffens, limiting circulation in the body, which then affects the brain. When the brain doesn’t get enough circulation and waste products in the body accumulate, the aging process accelerates.
Slings Myofascial Training offers us a way for our bodies to gain dynamic stability, functional strength and movement ease, improving tissue elasticity, adaptability and responsiveness.
This unique training focuses on postural balance and movement efficiency through promoting qualities of the myofascial system.
As a movement teacher you are always seeking new training methods, to further understand the human body and to ensure it can function at it’s very best. There is no end to how much there is to learn, understand and integrate when it comes to the human body.
The course I attended last year Slings Myofascial Training Level 1 was the first part to this unique and revolutionary training. Personally I left last year’s course applying these new concepts and knowledge to myself, changes that impacted my work life, self practice, and the desire to deepen my knowledge of this particular type of training. I applied the Myofascial Training Technique to my weekly Nourishing Flow class, and in a very short period of time I began to notice changes in my client’s posture. Over the months the popularity in this class and my masterclasses has increased and all because clients themselves are seeing the benefits of this type of training themselves.
It only then became clear to me that Slings Myofascial Training was my path forward, and I couldn’t wait to train further. My time in Bali became further proof that I was onto something big. After struggling with a few minor injuries last year, I dedicated the last 12 months to Slings Myofascial Training and to my delight I reaped the benefits. Not only did studying anatomy and the slings course manual bring me much joy, but it instilled further my belief that this was the way I could seriously help and assist my clients in improving postural balance and movement efficiency.

3 Ways to Lift Your Mood!
Posture and attitude are strongly related.
Strengthening your posture, will not only make you look better but feel better as well.
Poor posture negatively impacts your body’s natural processes on a neurological, muscular and hormonal point of view.
Slumping can cause a range of problems from chronic pain and numbness to nerve compression, to gastrointestinal issues and breathing difficulties. Not feeling your best physically can take a big toll on how you feel emotionally.
- Commute with good posture. You might be spending upwards of a couple hours in your car. Make your chair more vertical and adjust your rear view mirror a little higher, forcing you to keep your sitting posture tall while you drive.
- Move more during the day. Taking the stairs versus the elevator is a good start but take an extra moment on maintaining an upright posture as you go up the stairs- you might be surprised how much better you’ll be able to breath at the top!
- Take a break! Stop what you’re doing at work a few times during the day, get out of your chair, stand tall, and focus on your alignment and breathing. Relax your shoulders, hold your head high and then take a deep breath. Take a few more breaths and try to maintain your lengthened posture once you are back in your cha
The year is almost coming to an end, and I am filled with so much joy about how the studio has grown this past year.

I am excited to announce that I will be hosting the Anatomy Trains and Slings Myofascial Practitioner Training here in Melbourne.
