Foundation Course

This course is the equivalent of the Associate Polarity Practitioner programme of the American Polarity Therapy Association. It can also serve as a complementary training for those who are already practitioners of other healing modalities.The foundation course gives the student a grounding in all four aspects of Polarity:

  • Polarity Bodywork
  • Counselling
  • Polarity Yoga
  • Energy-based Nutrition

The Foundation course consists of the following modules.

The General Session (1 weekend )

In this weekend workshop you will learn the ‘General Session’, which is a series of gentle contacts designed to release the energy flows throughout the body and reconnect these with the major energy centres known as chakras. This process releases chronic tensions from the body inducing a state of deep relaxation. Emphasis is placed on developing the art of touch and understanding the correct relationship of mind and body for healing and well-being. The skills you learn in this weekend will enable you to do basic Polarity bodywork session on friends or family. This workshop also forms the first section of the Polarity Foundation Course.

Polarity Counselling – (4-day course)

Polarity involves working with emotions and thought patterns as well as physical structure. This course teaches basic verbal skills for bodywork professionals. When one is able to release held feelings and change dysfunctional thought patterns, body realignment is natural and spontaneous. The skills you learn in this intensive workshop will give you the ability to turn a bodywork session into a transformative experience on all levels.

The Five Elements (5 day retreat)

This course will deepen your understanding of how to work with specific energy flows of the body. You will develop an understanding of the life energy’s expression through the five elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether, which are studied in their relationship to the structure and function of the body, mind and emotions. Sessions for balancing each of the elements and the chakras will be taught.

Polarity Reflexology (3 days)

Teaches you how to work not only on reflex points on the feet and hands, but also how to trace and release energy blocks throughout the whole body by following specific patterns of energy through their positive, negative and neutral phases.

Supervision Classes (3 days)

In these sessions, the students will have a chance to work on clients under the supervision of a teacher and receive feedback.

Individual Sessions

Each student is required to receive 5 Polarity sessions from a Registered Polarity Practitioner and to document 30 sessions they have given.
