Aston-Patterning® Certification Training Phase IV

Neuro-Kinetics II

Building on the skills learned in Phases I-III, students will acquire additional movement techniques and refine bodywork skills.  Neuro-Kinetic techniques will be presented with an emphasis on the application of the Aston Paradigm to complex movement activities such as athletics (running, golfing, etc.), playing musical instruments, activities of daily living and other movement disciplines such as yoga, Pilates and T’ai Chi.  Students learn and experience how to break down movements into component parts.  This clarifies the specific aspects of the activity that contributes to the client’s complaint.  In addition to learning how to approach the individual, the student will practice facilitating groups in movement activities.

Aston-Patterning® Certification Training Phase VI

Client Application & Group Teaching Instruction 

The final phase advances the student’s knowledge developed in the previous phases.  Students will learn how to choose and integrate all of their learned skills to determine the best session design and progress for a client’s interest and needs.  This course will cover problem-solving skills applicable to chronic structural patterns, and facilitating rehabilitation situations and sports activities.  The class will also have the opportunity to make an Aston-Patterning® presentation to the public, as a way of assisting the development of their Aston-Patterning® Practice.  Students will learn to teach group classes, in specific techniques—for example massage therapists on their body usage, yoga, Pilates and Fitness Trainers on modifying their exercises.

Having successfully completed all six phases, the student is eligible for an evaluation of knowledge and skills.  The evaluation consists of a written and practical exam, and is scheduled at the conclusion of the Phase VI course.

Aston-Patterning® Certification Training Phase III

Spiraling Massage for Fascial Integration

From their knowledge of the Spiraling massage, students are introduced to the Aston form of Myo-fascial bodywork (Myo-Kinetics) to address dehydration and adhesions in the soft tissue.  They learn to advance their problem-solving skills for applying Myo-Kinetic techniques.  The result of this process leads to new possibilities for alignment of the body structure, range of movement and overall resiliency.
