If you are an anatomy geek or fascia lover, this workshop is for you!
During this weekend intensive we will cover basic myofascial anatomy and how it pertains to yoga, biotensegrity and functional movement. We will discuss fascia theory, while also devoting a portion of class time to exploring this knowledge experientially with exercises in embodied anatomy.
This workshop can be used toward the 200-hour Myofascial Yoga teacher training, or as continuing education credits with Yoga Alliance.
Topics covered will include:
- Basic human anatomy as it pertains to a functional yoga practice.
- Properties of fascia as a holistic system, including collagen and elastin, as well as the polysaccharide gel complex (aka the extracellular matrix).
- Mechanotransduction- how using gentle pressure in yoga poses affects the body on a cellular level.
- Viscoelasticity- how this property is relevant to the body’s continuously changing shape.
- Embodied anatomy- how to convert the science into movement and the felt experience of tissue continuity.
- Basic biomechanics of movement- how healthy alignment depends on properly distributed fascia.
- Molecular and bioelectrical structures of fascia, as well as energy anatomy. Can the ancient meridian system be found within the fascial system?
