About the Course
Fascia connects…quite literally!
You can think of fascia like a spider web of interconnections encasing your whole body.
Fascia is sheets of connective tissue. Examples include: tendons, ligaments, joint capsules, cartilage, organs and muscular connective tissues.
Fascia forms beneath the skin; it attaches, encloses and separates muscles and other internal organs.
Fascia gives our body both shape and structure. It plays an important role in holding our skeleton and muscles together.
Fascia is integral to healthy, functional movement as it transfers and stores energy.
Fascia plays a role in transporting fluids and nutrients throughout the entire body.
Finally, fascia is a sensory organ. Fascia is constantly communicating information to the central nervous system and to the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system controls vital bodily functions, such as heart rate, respiratory rate and digestive processes.
In summary, fascia is essential to life!
Lack of movement can cause fascia to lose its elasticity or crimp-like formation over time.
So, movement is medicine! Fascia responds best to varied movements, such as kicking, swinging, rotating, jumping, squatting, bouncing, throwing, running, and more.
Our modern-day lifestyle may not offer many opportunities for us to move like this.
Movement can keep our fascial network healthy, supple and nourished.
Fascia can become dense, sticky, matted and congested due to lack of movement.
If this happens, one may experience one or more of the following:
reduced range of motion
stiffness, especially first thing in the morning
poor mobility and flexibility
reduced collagen production
increased risk of injury
When fascia is healthy, it is wet and is able to glide and slide easily between the layers of the skin, fascia and muscles. As a result, we are able to move with more freedom!
This freedom in movement can have a positive impact on mood, energy level and emotional health.
Now, if you’re sitting there thinking, it’s too late for me to make improvements to my fascial system…well, I’m here to tell you that it’s never too late!
Recent imaging proves that fascia is alive. This tells us that the fascial system can be remodeled through movement that trains fascia.
And that’s exactly what we will accomplish in this course!
We work from the ground up in order to target different fascial lines that exist throughout the entire body.
This course includes:
15 movement classes
50+ exercises designed to stretch, strengthen, stimulate and revive your fascial system
3 daily routines (morning, evening and a chair fascia practice)
Educational videos on the basic functions of fascia, its importance, as well as how we can make changes to the structure and architecture of fascia during the movement practices in this course
Experience freedom of movement in your body by tending to your fascia!
I look forward to moving with you soon!
