Fascia is literally everywhere in the body, but do you know much about it?
Most yoga teachers learn anatomy by memorizing muscles and then mapping that information to yoga postures. But muscles aren’t separate units of tissue isolated from their neighbors; they are part of an interconnected web where even our cells are wrapped with fascia. Researchers know that fascia is more than packing material, but the yoga world is just starting to catch on.
What every yogi should know about fascia but didn't know to ask.
Fascia needs unique movement nutrition. Can we give all of our tissues what they need in a yoga practice?
Muscles and fascia are deeply intertwined. What are the implications for movement, injury and healing?
The connective tissue is the most wired sensory organ in the body. Can yoga enhance this feature?
In this 3-part, live webinar series, I'll walk you through everything you need to know to about fascia and how to target it in your yoga classes and personal practice.

"It was obvious that Jennifer devoted a significant amount of time and effort to researching and preparing her information. She presented her information in an organized and accessible way, with practical real life examples and illustrations. This workshop, like her others, was inspiring, interesting, and fun! It would be helpful to anyone involved in just about any kind of bodywork as either a provider or practitioner. As a yoga teacher, I’ll be able to use the concepts I learned from this workshop to inform the sequences and asanas I offer my students.

"Jennifer O'Sullivan's Fascia 101 class provided an enjoyable and comprehensive look at the topic of fascia. She covered everything from a brief history to suggestions for fascial health and wellness. I was impressed with Jen's multi-media approach, including drawings, diagrams, videos, and demonstrations, which made the subject more accessible and entertaining."
