Before You Book: Course Requirements

Please review the course requirements & prerequisites below for all courses:

  • Must have at least 1 year of manual therapy experience.
  • Must meet your state/country's massage licensure requirements.
  • Must have current liability/malpractice insurance in the state/country where you practice (no exceptions).
  • Sarga Bodywork does not have specific weight restrictions for students who attend in-person Sarga Bodywork courses. We recognize that a person’s weight is not necessarily indicative of fitness level, however we reserve the right to deny/refund applicants based upon our evaluation and will inquire further with applicants who are more than 175 pounds in weight and/or more than 6 feet in height. For more on practitioner weight and safety considerations, please review “Safety Considerations for Sarga Bodywork on Raised Massage Tables" under the “Equipment section” at www.sargabodywork.com/prepare
  • Fitness level is especially important for Sarga Bodywork practices on raised massage tables.


Here are 4 fitness measurements that can help to gauge your ability to learn and perform Sarga Bodywork with success:


1. The ability to balance on one foot for at least 1 minute without holding onto anything for support.


2. Excellent cardiovascular conditioning and the ability to perform cardiovascular exercise (jogging, swimming, etc.) for 10-15 minutes without stopping.


3. The ability to perform at least 3 sets of 20 squats.


4. The ability to isometrically hold a plank for at least 1 minute.


If you do not feel confident that you could meet these four requirements or if the location equipment and classroom cannot accommodate the height and weight parameters above, but you would still like to attend a Sarga Bodywork course, then our floor-based courses would be the best fit for you! Please contact sarga@sargabodywork.com directly for floor based course inquiries. While basic strength and conditioning is still important here, a floor-based practice provides practitioners a much wider and more stable working area, and fitness level is less of a consideration.
