ELDOA 2 is in the books! After 3 days and learning 20 new ELDOAs, I am very sore but loaded with new tools to help myself, clients, and my physical education students for the upcoming school year!
For those of you who are interested, the next ELDOA Level 1 class will be on January 19-20 at Beach Fitness in Seal Beach. Click here to learn more.
I felt so good after taking my first ELDOA class that I immediately wanted it in my life full-time. I felt taller, like I’d been stretched out on a rack, opening up my joints and spacing out my spine.
If your looking to incorporate mobility and injury prevention into your 2018 goals, ELDOA is a great place to start. Developed by French osteopath Guy VOYER (yes, his legal name is in all caps), ELDOA is an acronym from French words, which in English translate to longitudinal osteoarticular decoaptation stretches. “Osteoarticular” means bones and joints, “decoaptation” means opening, and ELDOA is the name of both the method and the postures involved.
Each posture, or ELDOA, is carefully designed to “create space” within a precise joint or a segment of the spine using myofascial tension and muscle contraction. By creating myofascial tension (tension in the fascia), the ELDOA can affect the tissue, ligaments, nervous tissues, and organs associated with that joint or spinal segment. There are ELDOAs for the spine, shoulders, hips, ribs, and skull.

The solution is to get “unplugged!”

ELDOA 1 Education | SEAL BEACH with Bryce Location: Beach Fitness, SB
Date: October 28 & 29, 2017
Location: Beach Fitness, Seal Beach
ELDOA 1 Education is an introduction to the practice of ELDOA training.
In this 2 day course you will cover the anatomy and basic biomechanics of the spine. Through this you will better understand the functionality of the benefits of ELDOA.
You will focus on 4 classic ELDOA positions that are used most commonly in fitness and therapy practice to help improve function & alignment of the spine, correct spinal pathologies (stenosis to herniation), and pain management.
Lastly, you will learn how to apply these techniques in your practice through clinical application.
It is suggested to review all spinal anatomy, basic function of the spine, and general pathologies. We also suggest you bring case studies with you to ask questions to better learn clinical application.
The goal of this course is meant to teach the fundamentals of the ELDOA practice and not to prepare you for teaching large group classes but rather practice in a small intimate setting to refine your skills at teaching clients and patients proper form and technique.
