Ms. Safarova graduated from Charles University Dept of Physical Therapy and specializes in rehabilitation of locomotor system dysfunction. She works as a physiotherapist of the Rehabilitation Department at the University Hospital Motol in Prague.
Ms. Safarova is a certified Vojta therapist and she is going to be the certified assistant for Vojta´s method teaching. She has trained and worked with Professor Kolar and Dr. Kobesova at the rehabilitation department for several years, where she treats both adults and children. Recently she is focusing more on the pediatric clients and specializes on the treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. She regularly instructs both medical and physiotherapy students at the hospital. Fluent in English, Ms. Safarova has worked as an assistant skills instructor for several Professor Kolar's courses for international clinical groups who came to study in Prague, in addition to lecturing on his methods in Denmark, Sweden, Austria, China, Taiwan, Japan, Israel, Jordan, Australia and USA. In addition to reflex locomotion methods, she is a certified teacher of Professor Karel Lewit’s techniques, just finished the second level of Stecco FM course in 2018. She is graduated from Charles University Prague June 2009; PhD thesis: Musculoskeletal System Dysfunction in Patients in Long-Term Remission of Wilms Nephroblastoma.
●Pediatric course part 1
This is a 4 days course for new attendees who have never attended any DNS course previously.For those already familiar with DNS, whom have attended the DNS A course, it is a 3 day course (Students who have done some DNS courses previously may attend all 4 days of this course should they wish)
•Demonstrate an understanding of the basic principles of developmental kinesiology with an emphasison development during the first year of life. Basic sagittal stabilization, postural-locomotion function, stepping forward and supporting extremity function.
•Describe the basis for primitive reflexes and postural reactions and their roles in developmental kinesiology.
•Assessment of baby’s developmental age. Developmental and chronological age correlation (baby demonstration)
•Describe the relationship between development during the first year of life and pathology of the locomotor system in adulthood.
•Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional DNS tests
•Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns.
•Demonstrate a basic understanding of the principles of reflex locomotion:locomotor patterns - stepping and support function and stimulation zones.
•Perform the basic techniques for reflex locomotion, i.e. reflex turning 1, and reflex creeping: initial positioning and anticipated movements, key zones and their vectors.
•DNS principles for baby handling
