Dr. Emily Splichal - Evidence Based Fitness Academy

I'm beyond excited to again host Dr. Emily Splichal here in the UK to deliver her Barefoot Training Specialist Levels 1 and now Level 2 over a 3 day period at the end of June (23rd, 24th + 25th).

The first Level 1 Course held here in 2016 was a huge success and now there is the opportunity to either start your journey or go further with Dr. Emily this summer.

 Dr.  Emily's work fits perfectly with the Burrell Education principles of integrated functional exercise, vertical positioning and the increase in both local and global tensegrity 'toes to nose' in order to improve functionality and stability and harnessing the power of the core.  These principles are an essential part of progressing for the Post Natal population seeking 'core-reconnection' and rehabilitation and the midlife to aging (3rd Age) population that many of us serve.  Paying attention to what's going on at the feet and their relationship to the 'global conversation' of movement and proprioception is probably one of the most missed pieces of many professionals' programming arsenal.

 Time to get this ESSENTIAL part of the puzzle in place!

Many of us completely under-estimate the power of the foot as a driver for dysfunction throughout the body and paradoxically their ability to become the driver of stable, precise and truly integrated movement too. It's time to 'bring our feet into the conversation' when discussing TRULY INTEGRATED CORE-FUNCTION, REHABILITATION, PROPRIOCEPTION AND BEYOND!

Who Should Attend This Education?

Fitness Professionals
Pregnancy to Post Natal Wellness + Movement/Rehab Specialists
Yoga Professionals
Pilates Professionals
Indeed ANYONE who works in human movement and seeks to gain truly harness the full potential of the foot!

Dr. Emily doesn't pass this way too often so, if you're keen, I'd book on as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Barefoot Training Specialist Level 1 –  (1.5 Days) - 23rd + 24th June, 2017

Location: Central London (Exact Venue TBC) 9am - 5pm full day Friday and 9am til  12 noon Saturday.

As the foundation to all EBFA education the BTS Level 1 Certification sets the foundation for advanced concepts in barefoot activation, reflexive stabilization and movement efficiency. With the foot as the only contact point between the body and the ground, this complex structure plays a critical role in the way in which our body stabilizes during dynamic movement.

In ths Level 1 Certification get ready to explore how to prep the body for movement by tapping into the nervous system with barefoot science, foot to core sequencing and reflexive stability via fascial lines.

 Learn concepts including:

  • Foot to core sequencing via short foot
  • Introduction to foot & ankle anatomy & biomechanics
  • Open chain & closed chain foot assessments
  • Foot function & fascial lines
  • Barefoot before shod programming
  • + more!

Barefoot Training Specialist Level 2 – (1.5 Days) - 24th + 25th June, 2017

Location: Central London (Exact Venue TBC) 1pm - 5pm Saturday and full day - 9am til 5pm Sunday.

Further challenge your concept of from the ground up movement and foot to core sequencing with EBFA's Level 2 Certification. From heel strike to push-off, our foot dictates the way our body responds- and reacts- to every closed chain movement including walking, squatting and jumping.

In this advanced Level 2 workshop you will further explore the concept of foot to core as it relates to movement efficiency and the transfer of energy as it relates to gait. All attendees will learn the powerful assessment technique for walking and running gait.

Learn concepts including:

  • Advanced foot biomechanics including the great toe and first ray
  • Phases of the walking gait cycle
  • Walking & running gait assessment techniques
  • Innate loading response
  • The catapult effect and energy transfer
  • + more!

Dr. Emily will also be showcasing and instructing on her REVOLUTIONARY Small Nerve Proprioception NABASO TECHNOLOGY MAT during this training as the ideal platform for performing Barefoot Training - game-changing if you train clients in need of 'compound' Pelvic Floor re-connection strategies, anyone with core-dysfunction, backpain and the over 40 population and those at risk from 'falls'.
(Nabaso Technology mats will be for sale at this education.)

Here are some other great examples of Dr. Emily's work....I think you'll love it!
