Course objectives Sports & Fitness Courses

Besides covering standard DNS Exercise III course objectives this course will explain and demonstrate how to integrate and apply higher developmental positions in developmental kinesiology to the surfing athlete.


• Introduction to the principles and concepts of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) with focus on benefits to the surfing athlete

• Demonstrate the relationship between developmental kinesiology, functional physiological thresholds and physiological gaps of the locomotor system in athletes

• Review of the common bio-mechanical dysfunctional patterns, clinical & injury presentations of the professional surfing athlete

• Define ideal postural stabilization from a developmental perspective and relate that to surfing’s unique loads, intra-abdominal pressure regulation, sensory-motor feedback, and body awareness in space

• Outline the importance of the diaphragm function and capacity in the surfing athlete, through evaluating respiratory patterns

• Review surfing unique bio-mechanical loads particularly in the lower limb and the integrated use of a WSL functional neuro-orthopeadic screening protocol to identify specific inefficiencies of the integrated stabilizing system

• Exercise modifications to take into account specific sitting, paddling and stance loads as well as wave size and types so as to train the basic sport movements of surfing

• Active exercise prescription based on developmental positions –putting together a flow sequence of DNS active exercises specific for preparing the surfing athlete for his/her task including: Pre-habilitation Warm-up including practical morning pre-surf sessions Warm-down including practical morning post-surf sessions Competition day Autonomic Nervous System restoration


Prague School Registration Fee

Trainers, coaches, body work therapists, exercise physiologists & kinesiologists and clinicians who took DNS Exercise course part II. Please contact the local organizer, if you are part of a group that is not listed above.

Card payment

PS Registration Fee: 80 EUR

Prague School registration fee helps

to support DNS scientific activities,

to collect new video/photo material,

to develop the DNS handouts and publishing activities,

to present the DNS system at the scientific congresses, and

to present the DNS concept online.

It is not a payment for the course. Please contact the local organizer to secure your enrollment in the course and make sure that the course is not full, prior to paying Prague School registration fee. Once your PS fee is completed, your registration will automatically be sent to the course organizer. After that, payment of course fees can be made with the organizer. The organizer reserves the right to request proof of licensure.

The Prague School registration fee is non-refundable.

Without your online registration and PS fee payment you will not be permitted to attend any DNS course nor will you receive the Prague School Certificate of Attendance; thus you cannot take the DNS test and you will not be allowed to register for later advanced courses.

Upon you registration and payment, you will receive an automatic email with a link to download the course notes. This email goes to the email address you provide during your payment procedure. If you do not receive this email within one hour after a payment, please contact and request the course notes. Hard copies will not be available at the host location.

Thank you for your understanding
