Fascia can be found in and around muscles, in joint capsules, around organs, and in the form of ligaments and tendons. It is crucial in strength transfer and proprioception. Fascia forms a spider web under our skin and in deeper parts of the body. This spider web influences the way you move and can lead to pain if tension is not balanced. In this workshop you learn more about fascia and why it is so important. This understanding is based on scientific research and explored in your own body.
How to use fix point and direction?
In this workshop, you will learn how to make optimal use of your fascia: by moving in two directions you create both length and ease of movement. Creating length from the ground up, you will increase awareness by awakening hands, feet and sitting bones. From that stable base you will learn how to use direction to create length of fascia. This helps you move gracefully but also creates a safe position for joints.
How to open fascial lines?
Furthermore you will learn how to move from a perspective of opening instead of closing. Commonly we think of back or front bending as an action of folding or closing the body. If we instead change our focus to the parts that open, we move safely and find ease of movement.
