NVR-SI Part 1: Intro to Neurovascular Release for SI

_DSC7254Learn neurovascularly informed myofascial techniques that look and feel like regular structural integration. Differentiation techniques that you learn in this course are nuanced specifically for freeing the neurovascular tracts. This work has a certain precision to it that makes it particularly effective for fine-tuning structural balance — it’s great for athletes, and great for every client who needs that extra nudge to help them emerge more fully from their old structural pattern. Adding these skills to your library of SI techniques will improve your sense of layer palpation, you’ll gain new strategic approaches for classic problems, and you’ll elevate your work to a new level of mastery.

This class will prepare you for further study in the NVR-SI Certificate program, but whether or not you choose to continue your advanced studies in this class series, the new skills and understanding that you gain in this intro course will significantly change the way you approach SI. In this three-day course, expect to learn something new for each session in the classic SI series or the ATSI series.

This class is appropriate for both seasoned practitioners and new practitioners. Part 1 is prerequisite for Part 2 of the NVR-SI Certificate Program.
