Full Description

THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS 20- HOUR MODULE WILL BE TO:
explore the anatomy, physiology, and function of connective tissue( fascia) as a way of understanding how its health is integral to the function of our other “life” systems, including, but not limited to, our physical, emotional, energetic, and “communicative” self.
apply this knowledge experientially in our own yoga practice using asana, kriyas, pranayams, and bandhas to sense the pervasive nature of this flexible armor that creates the shape we’ve come to know, while continuing to sculpt who we are to become.
provide for us as teachers, therapists, and bodyworkers new ways of body-reading; coming to better understand and support our work with both students and clients.
“You see….., I believe in shapes. I believe everything good has a shape. Shapes are the way in which we know who we are and where we are in our universe. Show me the shapes and forms a person gives to her or his life, and I will tell you whether she/he is a master or victim of that life”.
(paraphrased from Gail Goodwin’s “Glass People”.)

Our bodies, minds, and spirits, born of our DNA, life experiences, and individual karmas perpetually shape our form. As the Hatha Yoga Pradipika reminds us; these are not separate entities but function as one system, communicating consistently and synchronistically. While American Architect Louis Sullivan stated form follows function, in context of what it means to be human, function inevitably and necessarily is governed by and becomes a byproduct of form.
The fascia ( connective tissue, myofascaie, or neuromyofascial web) is the substance that ultimately creates our form, both seen and unseen. Like the Koshas, these many-layered sheathes are all independent and yet interdependent matrices, ones which nourish and support all of our body’s systems. Its network interconnects and maintains the shape we’ve come to know, the material that is home to our entire essence. To understand this vital network is to practice with the foundation of body movement; a knowledge of this foundation deepens our practice and our ability to work with others’ forms.
