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 registered 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 are working in the field of health, wellness and exercise and who enjoys problem solving.
All applicants should have at least one year experience of working with patients or clients.

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 full body spiral patterns.

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

  • Perform the full FROM test, including the Bunkie Test
  • 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

NOTE THAT ONLY CERTIFIED LYNO PRACTITIONERS MAY WORK UNDER THE LYNO BRAND NAME.

PRACTICAL WORK

After the first module, students are expected to perform 16 (60min) practical sessions on friends or family members, which should include the full assessment and releases. Following the final module, students are expected to complete 25-50 practical sessions in order to qualify for the certification exam.
