Unbinding the Rope: Yoga for Balancing the Fascial Sheaths
WITH Anna Gieselman
2:30 to 4:30 p.m.From the beginning of our embryological development to adulthood our bodies are organized around and supported with connective tissue called fascia. This collagenous webbing provides the environment for every cell, muscle, organ and bone and literally binds the systems of our body into form. It is largely shaped by the forces of gravity and our daily movements (or lack thereof) and must constantly mediate between stability and mobility.
In this 4 part yoga workshop, Anna will introduce you some to the myofascial sheaths found within the Anatomy Trains theory developed by Tom Myers, which she began studying in 2011 as a manual therapist. Each class will have a short anatomical presentation to familiarize you with the basics. Afterwards Anna will guide you through a series of somatic movements developed by her teacher Tias Little followed by specific yoga asanas to work with the fascia. This is an introductory workshop series in which each class build upon the next. You can expect to gain a deeper understanding of your internal fascial map and discover how to therapeutically address restrictions within it.
