ELDOA 1: Certification Course with Denise Herrera
When: Saturday December 10th and Sunday 11th, 2022
Where: Scottsdale, AZ
ELDOA 1 program is designed for the student-practitioner with minimal or no formal training in the anatomy and biomechanics of the spine. ELDOA 1 is a two-day course, giving the practitioner the foundation working principles of the ELDOA
It is the base for all other levels in the ELDOA program.
With the help of the course instructor participants will work in small groups to work out the exercise progressions for each spinal segment and coach each other on how to correctly apply each ELDOA. This way everyone learns to both do and coach the ELDOA.
What you will learn:
- History of the ELDOA
- Guy Voyer’s Educational Paradigm
- Philosophy of the complexity
- Tensegrity Biomechanics
- Relational Anatomy (Fascia)
- Learn By Doing
- Techno-methodology and practice of ELDOA
- Learn the most used ELDOA of the Spine
The goal of ELDOA Level 1 is for the student to leave with anatomical and mechanical principals of the ELDOA while getting plenty of practical experience. So by the time you walk out of the class the last day, you will not only feel better and have an improved posture and awareness and the ELDOA’s to maintain it.
PREREQUISITE: There is no prerequisite for this course except the motivation to know how the body systems works and how ELDOA can optimize those functions
EXAM: There is no exam for this course
CERTIFICATION: Upon completion of this course a certification will be given. This Certification will allow the participant to announce themselves as an ELDOA Student Practitioner Level 1.
Guy VOYER, DO is a “classically-trained” European Osteopath who remains true to his manual medicine training. He holds a Doctorate in Osteopathy with an extensive background in the fields of sport, manual therapy and medicine, which includes studies and degrees in physical education, physiotherapy, sports medicine, traumatology, biomechanics, and various forms of body work including massage therapy. In addition, he has a PhD. in educational science. He has initiated and collaborated on numerous research projects, including the studies on intervertebral disc compression and herniation.
As a result of this work, Guy VOYER, DO organized his own system of therapy (SomaTherapy) with many techniques that he created himself. To compliment his therapeutic system, he designed an exercise-training program (SomaTraining) that respects the organization of the fascial chains and human biomechanics. Today, he is one of the few osteopaths in the world to master the treatment of fasciae and how to prescribe exercise to reinforce these treatments.
After decades of study and clinical practice as both an exercise practitioner and therapist, DR. VOYER organized his unique educational paradigm and teaching method – “learn by doing”. This paradigm includes the principles of complexity and systems theory, tensegrity biomechanics and functional anatomy. This method is used in all of his courses.
His goal now is to teach and pass along his knowledge through the students who have followed his life’s work.
