& myofascial release WORKSHOP
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
In this 90 minutes workshop, you’ll be introduced to the powerful effects of breathing and its impact on spinal stability, pain, injury, biochemistry and mood states. This workshop will explain why optimal breathing is a foundation for creating stability for the spine and pelvis, force generation and is an integral component of injury prevention. We will also discuss the role of myofascial release and its impact on breathe. The workshop will come with the rad roller to help modulate areas in the body to improve overall breathing patterns.
Did you know that altered respiration can lead to excessive loss of carbon dioxide, altering blood chemistry values, excessive loss of sodium and magnesium and alter moods often leading to anxiety? Many people acquire impairments to breathing through injury or surgery such as Cesarean sections, appendectomies or develop altered mechanics through repetitious movements or postures.
As part of the workshop you will get your own pair of rad rounds to take home and practice!
What you can expect:
• Biochemistry of breathing - Review the effects of altered respiration on blood tests; The role of carbon dioxide in health and disease
• Applications of neuroscience - Nociception, sensory, motor concepts of feedback
• Movement and biomechanics - Using movement to assess breathing mechanics
• Myofascial Release – with Rad Roller tool
• Breathing pattern assessment - Learn how to assess breathing patterns
Who is this workshop for?
Anyone who is interested in understanding breath patterns and their impact on everyday life.
Timing : Saturday 14th September at 11:00am (90 minutes)
Joining Fee: 300 aed

Keith has been involved in the health, fitness and wellbeing industry for over 20 years. He studied areas such as metabolic typing, functional medicine with the Institute of Functional Medicine, neurobiology of sleep with Michigan University and in 2017 gained a post graduate diploma in endocrinology with distinction from the University of South Wales. In 2019, Keith received a Master of Science degree in endocrinology with distinction researching the accuracy of thyroid stimulating hormone in the face of mounting pollution, stress and nutrition factors.
Keith has also completed the CHEK institute Level 3 practitioner and became a neuromuscular therapist. Since then he completed the selective functional movement assessment and Neuro Kinetic Therapy. He has undertaken short courses with the Neuro Orthopedic institute (NOI), Rehab School of Prague and Duke University/Neuroscience.
He is currently undertaking a course of study of Proprioceptive Deep Tendon Reflex – P.D.T.R with Orthopaedic Surgeon Jose Palomar which combines neuroscience and biomechanics.
Keith works around the world delivering rehabilitation, energy, digestion and hormone related coaching to clients and delivers his own courses on resolving breathing pattern, nutrition and hormone issues.
