Evidenced Based Principles and Applications of Stretching and Self-Myofascial Release


Course Description

Course Description:

The fascial system is vital not just to our structural health, but to the health of the body as a whole. The fascial system surrounds, supports and integrates our muscles, organs and even our cells. It is a multi-dimensional system, essential to the flow of information and vital energy—prana, or chi—in the body. Adding myofascial release to your yoga practice helps remove restrictions and trauma in this vital system. The myofascial system gets limited and dehydrated over time, as trauma, inflammation or unresolved emotional holdings get lodged in the system. Myofascial restrictions hold many people back in their yoga practice.
This course instructs the therapist in the principles of fascia, mechanics of Myofascial release and Anatomy Trains. Therapists will gain a deeper understanding of the myofascial system, its importance for the body, and how myofascial restrictions or trigger points get lodged in the body over time. Through this course, therapists will learn how to integrate the knowledge of Myofascial release, Myofascial unwinding and Anatomy Trains into a therapeutic yoga practice to address common muscle imbalances.
