SOMATRAINING

The SomaTraining Program is considered by Guy VOYER, DO to be one of the most important components of his educational paradigm. 

EDUCATION SCHEDULE

OVERVIEW

It is offered to those who are interested in working with athletes at all levels, and those who are using exercise and wellness techniques to improve the general health and function of their clients. This includes but is not limited to: sports trainers, fitness consultants, sports chiropractors and physical therapists.

The program is designed for exercise professionals and manual therapists to improve their anatomical and biomechanical knowledge, while teaching a wide range of analytical exercise techniques paired with a way of thinking that allows them to deal with complex issues their patients and clients may present.

The SomaTraining curriculum is organized into 13 courses and integrates very precise and specific exercise techniques, ranging from analytical and segmental training to proprioception and myofascial stretching. The exercises learned are an integral and supportive part of VOYER’s therapeutic treatment paradigm, helping clients reach optimum health, and athletes reach maximum levels of performance.

SomaTraining is a unique methodology to rehabilitation and strength & conditioning built on osteopathic principles. It is born from the paradigm of complexity, similarly to the human body. The SomaTraining program consists of in-depth lectures combined with practical sessions where students learn specific exercise techniques while they develop a more complex way of understanding the human body. These techniques are indispensable tools of athletic trainers, physiotherapist, osteopaths, chiropractors, personal trainers and other body workers and health/wellness professionals. While each module gives students a very unique and different set of tools, students will develop their way of thinking in the complexity model and tensegrity biomechanics over the course of several modules. The diploma of SomaTrainer will be awarded at the end of the program.

PART 1

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR

ILARIA CAVAGNA

Ilaria Cavagna has been studying and working with Guy VOYER DO since 2009.
