SomaTraining - Level 3
Diploma of SomaTrainer


5 Seminars over a 8 to 10 months period. Each seminar lasts 3 to 4 days.


Cardio Training and Physical Conditioning


It is advisable to increase cardio-vascular and cardio-respiratory capacities. Whether for a beginner, to maintain general conditioning, preparatory training for sports, or to improve the performance of a high calibre athlete, only a program adapted to the individual needs can respond to the specific objectives. This program will study the elements that will permit progress in endurance, as well as cardio vascular and cardio-respiratory abilities according to the individuals needs.



Circulatory and Respiratory Techniques


Numerous persons suffer from problems of venous return (varices, varicosities; heavy legs, oedema, etc). Simple, yet very precise exercises, allow a stimulation of circulation of the blood in an anatomical and physiological sense for each vein.

There exist numerous exercises for improving quantity of respiration. These techniques are qualitative in nature, allowing a very precise recruitment of each pulmonary segment in order to address any respiratory insufficiency that is frequently encountered (asthma, smoking-related issues, etc)


Global Postural Stretching


Whatever your methods of preseason conditioning, training, or re-education, it is necessary to place the body part being solicited, into a global posture. To rediscover the efficiency and fluidity of a movement, the GPSs allow a perfect linking between the joint, the muscle and their fasciae. These specific postures must be meticulously performed and are adapted to each part of the body.

The positions can be used in training and conditioning as well as in pre-season training. They are equally of indubitable efficiency for all re-education programs.

For example, after an accident or an illness, all therapeutic treatment must be completed by a rehabilitation of all activities of daily life, in the personal life; the sporting life; and the professional life.

There are thus four big stages to follow:

The first is curative; by the surgeon, doctor; osteopath; or chiropractor according to their methodology.


The second allows the patient to validate the therapeutic action above by analytic auto-normalization exercises such as myo-fascial stretching, ELDOA, circulatory or respiratory exercises, proprioception exercises, awareness training, etc


The third stage brings in global postural exercises to give to the patient a general integration back into daily life, and sporting and professional activities. It is these global postural stretches of the trunk; and upper and lower limbs that are included in the program of the advanced personal trainer.


The fourth stage is the return to normal activities of the individual in question.



Pathologies des sports, cin├ęsiologie et strapping


After classifying and proposing therapeutic interventions for all classic sports pathologies (sprains, subluxations, tendonitis, etc), the student will study how to prevent all the injuries common to each sport by way of specific exercises.


Very frequently, to assist in the ability of movement or strength performance, the trainer must apply a therapeutic tape job for a ligament, tendon, muscle or a specific articulation. Specific methodology, practical and precise is taught for these purposes;



Clinical Applications and Examination


This seminar allows the application of all the Level 3 information for specific clients and to answer any questions arising.



Upon completion of all of the Level One, Two and Three classes, a Diploma of SomaTrainer and an European Diploma of Physical Training (FFCP) will be awarded.
