Slings Myofascial Training
What moves us? Three words that have been on our minds for a number of years. Rather than looking for exclusive answers, we let them inspire us to create a movement concept that values science. Its called Slings because of the myofascial slings that modulate motion and the somato-psycho-emotional-social slings that motivate our movements.
Slings is a holistic movement concept that can be incorporated into all body-minded practices. The elaborate fascia-focused training aims for structural integration, functionality and inside-out wellbeing through conscious movement. High aspirations that come with short-term and long-lasting benefits!
Since 2008 I have developed the Slings movement concept – and I dare say that it is unique in its composition. The guiding principles and applied myofascial training techniques are science-informed and experience-led, which provides a sound base to move from. The exercise repertoire and sequences have been successfully practiced and taught by myself (of course), art of motion educators and the teachers and therapists who completed the Slings foundation education or achieved their diploma. It works a treat and quite frankly, we are proud of our participants who have ventured into this new movement world with us.
If you are interested in understanding the complexity of the fascial system in-depth in relation to movement and adding a new dimension to your practice and the practice of your clients, then the Slings Myofascial Training education is for you.
Much success and boundless energy for your unique movement journey!

6. Module Slings Certification Course
Slings Foundation Education
After your successful completion of the first three modules, you will receive your “Slings Certification of Completion”.
Slings Diploma training
If you attend modules 4 and 5 as well as successfully complete the Slings certification course, you will receive your “Slings Movement Diploma”.
Why is a modular education pathway set out?
- You are flexible.
- You can attend one or two modules to assure yourself of the effectiveness of Slings.
- You decide whether you want to complete the training course within six months or two years.
- You can repeat individual modules.
- You can distribute the course costs over several months or years.
- You choose dates that suit you.
Anatomy Trains in Motion
Essentially Anatomy Trains in Motion is an anatomy course in which you will increase your depth of knowledge and gain a new perspective of Thomas W. Myers’ Anatomy Trains concept in relation to body-minded movement. The course is filled with functional anatomy, movement relevant information and practical applications that not only sound good on paper, but also work well in real life.
Slings Essentials is all about fascia, its role in movement and conscious training. The course revolves around fascial architecture, relevant qualities of fascia as well as Slings philosophy, myofascial training techniques and training aims. The comprehensive information will serve as a knowledge-base for the Slings in Motion repertoire courses.
Slings in Motion I
Slings in Motion I is the first of the series of Slings repertoire courses. It revolves around a very influential myofascial meridian duo; the “supportive, quietly persevering” Superficial Back Line and the “protective, proactive” Superficial Front Line of the Anatomy Trains body map.
Slings in Motion II
Slings in Motion II is an uplifting and energizing course that guarantees functional movement fun. It focuses on the “perceptive, gently winding and unwinding” Lateral Line and the “energetic, gyrating” Spiral Line. In the spirit of structural integration and for the purpose of movement integration, Slings in Motion I exercise variations are incorporated in this course.
Slings in Motion III
Slings in Motion III is the movement gem that rounds off the first triad of Slings repertoire courses. Its stars are the “authentic and wholehearted” Deep Front Line (aka myofascial core) and the “expressive, far-reaching” Arm Lines. Staying with the theme of structural and movement integration, Slings in Motion I and II exercise variations are woven into this course.
Slings Certification Course
The Slings certification course is an assessment of your skills and knowledge as well as an opportunity to refine them, clarify questions and consolidate your understanding. The two days are a dynamic mix of teaching, moving and quizzing, essay presentations, reflections and knowledge refinement through short lectures.
