mobility course

 

Joint mobility & body weight training have been a part of the Agatsu system since it's inception.

Through years of study of various health and martial arts systems, yoga, dance and gymnastics, Shawn Mozen has partnered with Sara-Clare Lajeunesse to create an active and effective joint mobility program that has become the corner stone to all of their training.

With the simple idea that we must first learn to master our own bodies before we can learn to overcome the resistance offered by weights, the Agatsu Joint Mobility & Movement program was born.

Unlike most mobility courses that work only in isolation, our systematic approach will teach you how to:

-Assess each joint

-Assess global positions

-Work on building better body awareness and develop a stable foundation on which you can then address your mobility issues

-Move from isolated positions to a full body co-ordinated movement practice

Mobility Certification

Who Is This Course For?

✅ Trainers, coaches and fitness enthusiasts who want to improve their personal skills and their ability to train others.
✅ Any athlete who is serious about improving their physical conditioning.
✅ Many non trainers attend Agatsu courses for their own personal development. If you are taking the course to improve your personal knowledge and do not wish to be certified you may participate without testing.

    mobility course

    'I am a practising Registered Physical Therapist and found the movement and joint mobility course so packed with great information that I took it twice in one year just so that I was better able to synthesize the content.
    Actually designed as way to enhance overall fitness, this two day Certification is not anchored down with excessive theory or unnecessary course work, just sound exercises with appropriate progressions and principles of mobility that I was immediately able to integrate into my Physical Therapy Practice the next day. I have spent thousands on numerous courses and have found this course to be the best value for immediate impact on my clients. For any rehabilitation specialists, (Physical Therapists, Massage Therapists, or Athletic Therapists), I would strongly recommend being open-minded and stepping outside of the standard repertoire of courses offered by your respective professions. Sara and Shawn are progressive and will help you think-outside of the conventional “box” as to what is possible with rehabilitation.'
