Certified CANTIENICA® Training, Level 1 Bronze (Lv1E 05-20) | Zürich

This 5-day intensive course enables you to start working with the CANTIENICA® Method right away. The method is strictly empirical assuming that each and every person and their bodies are unique. This will, above all, require a fair amount of practice and experience in order for your skills to grow.

Training Level 1 Bronze:

Pelvic floor training. Power training. Coaching.

The basic training is open to therapists as well as persons switching from other professions. The diploma training starts with 3 months of self-study. The basics are developed with the help of two comprehensive manuals which include an intensive confrontation with your own body. The exercises must be internalised theoretically, physically, cognitively and emotionally.

Training is coupled to a license. Click here for details on the license programme.

Contents of the Course

Part 1

Getting prepared: 8 weeks of self-study with training documentation (prior to course attendance)

The Level 1 Basics documentation consists of two manuals. The first one gives you a background on the CANTIENICA® vivatomy; it provides a glossary, elaborates on the basics of "diaphragm-based" breathing and pelvic floor training, and contains precise and detailed instructions for 75 exercises depicted in more than 100 photographs.

The second part instructs you on the unique CANTIENICA® coaching which, together with the exercises, makes the method so extraordinarily successful. We strongly recommend using both manuals during your self-study phase. The better prepared you are, the more you will benefit from attending the on-site course.

Part 2

Getting to know and applying the CANTIENICA® vivatomy: 5 days on-site course in Zurich, CH

Alignment of the bones, based on the upright and straightened spine

  • Use of the diaphragm as an intermediate floor in the body

  • Pelvic floor

Practicing of exercises; duration 3 days (requirement: self-study of 8 weeks with training documents beforehand)

  • Breathing

Each CANTIENICA® exercise involves the entire body: all bones, muscles, fasciae and ligaments. Aligning the bones exactly means the body is perfectly stretched in every position and every move.

  • How to coach a person into his or her individual perfect position

  • The perfect coaching touch

  • Coaching during exercises

Note: During these 5 days, you will do a lot of physical work. The training however, while being very intense, is absolutely safe and gentle and has no harmful side effects.

Part 3

Gathering practice experience: teach what you learned – with the knowledge acquired in part two you are ready to do so right away.

In assuming that every person is an individual and as such absolutely unique the CANTIENICA® Method is strictly empirical. A qualified self-evaluation system will support you in completing 60 hours of CANTIENICA® Teaching practice in groups or with individuals.

Part 4

Deepening your knowledge and exchanging experiences: follow-up course based on the concrete needs of course attendants (raised by questionnaire).

12 hours (2 days); date and place yet to be determined. Practical work on exercises, case studies.

The physical trainings are intense yet absolutely safe.

You are required to practice teaching (groups, personal trainings, workshops) for 40 hours (60 minutes) and to prepare your lessons (an additional 20 hours). As a proof of practice, please document your lessons and preparation work in writing. After successful conclusion of part four, you will receive your diploma as a teacher for CANTIENICA® Body in Evolution Level 1 Basics.

We will provide a hotline for course participants.
