Yoga and Fascia – Understanding Connective Tissue

with Danielle Fazio
January 5-6, 2019

Muscle is Fascia’s Bitch
– Gil Hedley, on the power dynamic relationship between fascia and muscle

This yoga + fascia module offers a basic understanding of the role of fascia as it applies to yoga poses, as well as the use of self-myofascial release techniques within a group, private, and personal yoga setting. We will discuss the basics of our fascial network, examine several functions and dysfunctions of fascia within yoga poses, and practice how they can be mindfully addressed with self-myofascial release techniques in a yoga setting. Students will have time to learn and apply self-myofascial release techniques by creating and sharing easy-to-use yoga sequences that incorporate self-myofascial release.

Basic yoga anatomy is helpful, but not required. Teachers, students, and mobility specialists are invited to attend.
