What Holds Us Together: Fascia and the Triaxial Body
October 7 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
with Michelle Bouvier
Fascia, or connective tissue, is the conductor of force & fluidity in our bodies. It is what gives us the feelings of either stiffness or freedom in movement. Surprisingly, biologists are just now learning about the functions of fascia in human anatomy.
For instance, fascia’s basic structure is a triple helix: three strands of connective tissue fibers spiraling around each other to form the springy and super-strong structures that literally hold us together. This means that we can transform our fascia directly by individual patterns of movement (or lack thereof)!
This workshop will present best practices for daily self-care and will visit topics of anatomy, energetic alignment, and the power of spiraling and wave motion to speak the language of our tissues, unwind holding patterns, and serve our sense of connected flow. We will cultivate breath and body awareness, much like a vinyasa yoga class, while moving completely off the mat. All levels welcome.
