Fascia 101

Returns November 2017

Registration opening soon!

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 connective tissues. 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 fasica 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 self-paced online course, 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.

  • Fascia anatomy and physiology at the macro and cellular levels

  • Elasticity, viscosity, and plasticity and implications for postures and movement

  • Adhesions, injuries and healing

  • Hydration and aging

  • Fascia and the nervous system

  • How to train healthy fascia and yoga's unique role

  • Tensegrity: a new look at biomechanics

"If you've been hearing a lot about Fascia lately and find you are getting curious, this webinar series will break it down for you in a very informative way and leave you wanting to take care of yourself!! Very thankful for this education."
