Yoga Workshop - The Life Centre, Islington : February 2019

Fascia – The Organ of Structure

Fascia has become the latest trend in yoga and bodywork.  Practitioners and experts from all fields of movement are discussing and researching it, and it’s revolutionizing our understanding of how the body moves.  We’re beginning to throw away the old paradigms and move towards a new fluid approach to movement practice.

If you’d like to find out more about this magical, almost liquid, connective tissue, and its impact on our yoga practice, join Catherine for this practical workshop to:

  Learn more what fascia is and how it affects us in yoga

  Develop approaches to unwind the fascial web in a variety of yoga poses

  Release habitual holding patterns and areas of restriction

  Understand the importance of fascia to our structural stability

  Cultivate a fresh approach to yoga that will return you to free, easy movement

In yoga, we’re constantly looking for balance.  Balance between effort and ease, expansion and gathering, tension and compression.  Balancing these opposing forces helps us feel light, spacious and stress-free in our postures, as if we are in flow with the forces of gravity.

Fascia has become buzzwords in yoga and bodywork and our increasing understanding is helping to revolutionize our understanding of how we move.  We’re beginning to throw away the old paradigms and move towards a new fluid approach to movement practice.
