Saturday 17th November 2:30-5:30pm in the traditional studio
Delve inside during this 3-hour workshop to explore the fascinating world of fascia
Fascia, also known as extracellular matrix is our architectural fabric that holds us together at the
same time as holding us apart. It is our largest sensory organ, weighing approximately 25Kg, fascia
resembles a wet three-dimensional spiderweb. providing a means of body wide communication.
Bio-tensegrity is the name given to a new paradigm that reveals a more complete picture of how
the body moves allowing for whole body strain distribution. Gaining insight into our architecture,
transforms our understanding of how the living body moves on and off the mat, enriching our
movement and experience. We no longer think of muscles moving bones and bones acting as
levers, theories prevalent for hundreds of years. Our bones are now considered to be suspended in
our fascia in a tension compression system, much like a balloon filled with water.
We will embody our theory through Asana practice, sensing how the ground is part of our pose,
our elasticity and stability, our openness and closedness, our sthirum, sukham, our wholeness
which is Yoga.
All notes will be provided
