SomaTraining MasterClass: Global Dynamic Normalization (GDN)

Start Date
June 16, 2024
End Date
June 19, 2024
9am to 5pm
Est Date
Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Prerequisite: Global Postural Stretching (GPS) (acceptance to this class only with completion of GPS!)

GDNʻs are crucial to Dr. Guy VOYERʻs adage "You are your own best therapist" as he often prescribes these for patients to be able to self work, correct, and normalize their tissues in between appointments months apart. GPS vs. GDN? GPS works with the tissue, ligaments, capsules, tendons, etc. GDNs work with dynamic movement, the movement of all the liquid in the body for normalization

This is the very first time VOYER is sharing the orthopedic GDNʻs as a Masterclass. There will be a small part of theory to explain why fascia has a "memory" and it is not static. Technomethodology (exercises) with a focus on muscular and orthopedic normalizations. Global Application, as an example, when and why you would choose the pelvic floor GDN vs. a hemi lubo-sacroiliac GDN for a pelvis issue. A Part 2 will be taught in the future with a visceral focus (i.e. Kidney GDN, Liver GDN (different parts), etc.).

Important to note, there will be absolutely no recordings done of class, and no digital devices to record the movements. Weʻre going analog here. The emphasis is to experience and move the water in our bodies with the rhythm of the PRM. Learn by doing!

Course Description

Prerequisite: Global Postural Stretching (GPS)

Life depends on the development of bio-dynamic, bio-electronic energy created by numerous osmotic, oncotic, biochemical and mechanical metabolic exchanges. These ionic exchanges only take place through the movement of water, i.e. body fluids. It's the 70% of water that makes up our body that allows this bioelectricity to invade fascial tissue, i.e. our solid connective tissue (ligaments, fascia, tendons, mesos, dura mater, adventitia, pleura, peritoneum, pericardium, etc.).

Fascial movement is alive. We know that it is a permanent mutation between free and link water; an incessant histological transformation from gel to sol, and vice versa.

The various fascial treatments (touch) and exercises such as myofascial stretching (MFS), global postural stretching (GPS), or global dynamic normalization (GDN) train and modify tissue memory. It's an ongoing debate, with the ultimate aim of finding a homeostatic compromise.

It is in this sense that a tactile (therapeutic) or mobile (exercise) approach will be applied.

If this bioelectronic flow is too regular, always the same, the danger is habit as well as cessation of movement (static posture).

The danger is the routine of exercise itself, which brings us closer to death.

The mobilization of our body's water and fluids requires a rhythm to create regular waves. Liquids, by definition incompressible, only move by undulation.

It is this cadence, this pace, this measure, this tempo of the GDN, that will promote the osmotic exchange of body fluids and thus determine the quality of life.

The aim of this basic GDN course is to understand, through global exercises, how to become aware of this biorhythm.

The exercises will be repeated until a cadence of movement is mastered.

Those who have mastered this phase, and this basic course will later be able to apply it to other GDN with an orthopedic connotation.

Finally, once this advanced course has been mastered, the visceral GDN can then be mastered.
