MAP Movement (Myofascial Activated Posture), is a rehabilitation tool to help you move more freely.

The MAP Introduction and Trainer courses are movement courses created to address the misconceptions around movement and re-training of posture. The known model of movement and training is based on the muscle isolation theory whereby muscle and movement become static and rigid. With the knowledge we have now we realise that movement happens in fascial planes and therefore we need to re-educate movement patterns and redefine the core.
MAP fills the gap between movement as we know it and movement as we want it to be. Let’s move out of defence into power and enable ourselves to move the way nature intended. So, the emphasis is on movement and not on manual therapy techniques. We focus on creating movement in the different fascial lines, breathing techniques to create movement and how it all interconnects.

Come learn how we can make your fascial bodysuit work FOR you!


Christien Mann


Is a co-founder of MAP Movement®. She is a qualified physiotherapist and BASI Mat Work Instructor. She has been teaching Pilates classes in Pretoria since 2000. Her main focus is to motivate people to move from the fear of pain to freedom of movement, with the aim to change chronic pain patterns such as lower back and neck pain through movement.

Her passion is to educate people about movement and their own bodies: to help them fully understand that they are fearfully and wonderfully made. Working with the body she realised the need to look at the body as a unit instead of separate components. Deriving information from various sources she formulated a technique together with Lené van Heerden to address this need. This technique is now called the MAP Movement.

Is a co-founder of MAP Movement®. She is a qualified physiotherapist and owner of a physiotherapy practice in Pretoria. Fields of interest include sport rehabilitation and movement. After working years at different sport practices she realised a solution needs to be found for chronic recurrent injuries.

Fascia movement techniques have proven to make a significant difference in the rehabilitation of the athletes treated in practice. Together with Christien Mann she is now teaching MAP classes and MAP courses to people hungry for movement.
