Are you working through pain? Struggling with flexibilty? Or do you want to know how to access more of the potential that is hidden in you? Then this workshop is for you.
Re-introduce your system to mechanics that make movement effortless, more mobile and less painful.
Movement coach Dominik Koch (@decryptbodywork), will show you why a shoulder issue may be the result of another issue elsewhere, and how the system may rob you of strength and flexibility if you end up in compromised positions – but are you even aware that you might be in them when lifting, running, pushing and pulling?
DISCOVER - RESTORE - BUILD
After assessing your own body and finding your limitations, you will begin the process of resetting your whole body’s movement from head to toe.
Learn how to build strength into the newly found ranges that are essential for resilience, integrity and safety in your squats, presses, pull ups and runs.
By the end you will have kick-started the process of gaining a new understanding of your body and how you can reduce the risk of injury and increase strength and efficiency on the gym floor and in life.
Dominik Koch is a movement coach who founded Decrypt Bodywork to help people solve seemingly unsolvable pain and to unlock hidden potential in performance. Making the unreadable readable forms the core of his work, allowing his clients to discover and respond to restrictions by giving the body what it wants.
As a CrossFitter himself, he understands the demands on the body. His eye for detail allows his clients to not only overcome recurring pain and limitations, but importantly to access strength that is already inside them, simply by showing the body how a change of mechanics leads to more efficiency, strength and power.
Dominik’s journey into the world of questioning the body and movement began when he was unable to find help with chronic pain and a long list of recurring shoulder injuries. Along the way to restoring his own health and of those around him, he learned that where we feel and where we have to resolve a problem are rarely in the same place.
In his approach to freeing up movement, he takes a step back from the area of complaint and shines a light on the rest of the system, always asking WHY the body may want to put the brakes on.
Dominik blends the best of Functional Range Conditioning and Anatomy in Motion with somatic movement explorations.
Should I come to the workshop instead of getting a one-on-one consultation?
A workshop does not and cannot replace an individual assessment. The intention of the day is to open your mind with regards to how you approach your movement and mobility.
As you will learn on the day, we all have our own unique history and lifestyle and how our bodies deal with these. This cannot be addressed in a group setting. Rather than a blanket solution (which does not exist), you will hopefully leave with a new view on yourself and why your attempts to better movement or to solve an issue may have failed. There will of course be a set of fundamental exercises that you can incorporate into your routine!
What’s different to other seminars or workshops?
Dominik’s primary goal is to re-educate the nervous system about more efficient, stronger and pain-free movement. He involves body and brain to the same extent, as he believes that the two are inseparable if we want lasting change. His slow-paced and exploratory way of moving the body emphasises the fact that the body wants to be safe and only then grants access to strength and flexibility. You will learn about the science and your brain’s rationale behind how you can move, how old injuries probably still live in your body and why big, sexy and “no pain no gain” has no benefit when we want to improve movement.
Who is it for?
Anyone who is interested in learning about their body, flexibility, mobility and hidden potential. You do not have to be in pain and even if you think your movement is on point, you will be guaranteed to learn about yourself and you will be given tools to improve your game.
From beginner to advanced, everyone will get something out of it.
I do yoga and am quite flexible. Is there any point in coming?
Definitely! Yoga is great, but it may not necessarily address your body’s “stuff” that it is really moving around. You will also learn how you can transform the flexibility that you’ve gained through yoga into mobility that transfers to stronger positions and lifts. Win!
Do I need to bring anything?
Most importantly: An open mind. The workshop will challenge your beliefs around movement and yourself. Growth and learning can happen when we are willing to question our approach and ourselves, and when we expose ourselves to new experiences. In short: Leave the ego at the door J.
Also, clothes that allow you to move comfortably - and a pen for the self-assessment!
I am currently injured. Should I come?
Yes! Please inform us about any injuries and Dominik will adapt the practical parts for you. Importantly, you will learn a lot about yourself and you may see your injury in a new light. You will be able to take away tools and tips that may speed up your recovery!
How long does the workshop last?
The workshop will last around 3 hours, starting at 12pm. There will be time for questions afterwards.
