Do you feel stiff when you wake up in the morning? Can you touch your toes? Do you hold tension in your hips, quadriceps, or hamstrings?
Often we blame tight muscles, but there is more to it than that. Fascia is the soft connective tissue in the body, it is what gives your body three-dimensional shape and what holds your body together even if you contort yourself into crazy yoga positions. The connective tissue weaves like threads in fabric within our muscles and around our bones to help us to be strong, steady, flexible, sensitive human beings.
Most nerve endings occur in the fascia, so attending to fascial health supports the healthy functioning of your nervous and immune systems too.
In this workshop, we will incorporate a combination of yoga asana, adaptations of asana, and therapeutic movements and stretches to support the good health of your fascia. This therapeutic yoga asana class is suitable for most who have at least some experience practicing yoga 1 or higher. It is excellent for walkers, runners, and busy life-livers.
