THE LYNO ACADEMY
The Lyno Academy was founded by Benita Kropman in 2010 and is based in Cape Town, South Africa. Courses and workshops are presented at the head office in Cape Town as well as at the Camelot Health and Beauty Institute in Houghton, Johannesburg.

THE SOUTH AFRICAN LYNO COURSE

The South African Lyno course is presented in Cape Town and Johannesburg. The course runs over a period of 3 months and includes 3 weekends of practical training, compulsory case study work as well as a practical certification exam. Lyno is a traded brandname and the intellectual knowledge is protected by the Lyno Academy. Practitioners who are certified by the Academy, are expected to work according to the Lyno principles, which includes the holistic assessment of movement, the specific Lyno release techniques and prescribed rehabilitation of movement.

Note that this is not a therapy course. We will not teach you how to diagnose or treat injuries or medical conditions. What you will learn is how to guide your clients towards body awareness, unlimited movement, full muscle activation and maximum performance, which together creates the optimum basis for health and self-healing.

WHO MAY ATTEND?

The course is open to all individuals who have a keen interest in holistic health, exercise and who enjoys problem solving.
The minimum qualification for this course is a metric certificate but experience in hands-on therapy is a recommendation.
Applicants with no anatomy background is advised to do an anatomy course which includes bones and muscles, prior to the course.

 

THE TRAINING

The course is divided into 3 different modules.

THE FIRST MODULE deals with all the linear lines of movement; forward flexion, backwards extension, side flexion and the core. You will learn how to analyse their movement, how to assist the client to unlock limitations by using our unique dynamic technique to release fascia immobility and restore full movement and function. This module also includes the Bunkie Test, which will enable you to test holistic function.

THE SECOND MODULE includes the assessment and release techniques for the scapula and arms.

THE THIRD MODULE focusses on body patterns, specifically rotation, diagonal and ipsilateral patterns.

By the completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Perform the full FROM test, including the Bunkie Test on a client
  • Analyse the test results to identify compensation or dysfunctional movement patterns that may lead to recurring injuries, strain on muscles and joints, dysfunction or a decrease in performance
  • Eliminate dysfunctional patterns through the release of locked fascia structures
  • Restore neutral movement patterns in order to improve function and optimize performance

PRACTICAL WORK

Students will be expected to perform assessments and practical work on 4 different case studies (4 sessions each) between modules 1 and 2, and between modules 2 and 3. After module 3, they will have to complete 5 -10 different case studies (5 sessions each) in order to qualify for the certification exam.

COST
The cost of the full course is R9600, which can be paid in 3 installments of R3200 each.
Your first payment of R3200 will secure your spot on the course.
