Releasing the biological fabric through asana, pranayama, and the bandhas
*300 Hour Kunga Yoga Essentials Track Required Training
Explore the anatomy, physiology, and function of connective tissue (fascia) as a way of understanding how its health is integral to the function of our other “life” systems, including, but not limited to, our physical, emotional, energetic, and “communicative” self.
The objectives of this 20- hour module will be to:
- Use asana, kriyas, pranayams, and bandhas to sense the pervasive nature of this flexible armor that creates the shape we’ve come to know, while continuing to sculpt who we are to become.
- Provide for us as teachers, therapists, and bodyworkers new ways of body-reading; coming to better understand and support our work with both students and clients.
Our bodies, minds, and spirits all represent form. As the Pradipika reminds us; these are not separate entities, but one form. All ‘systems’ must then, for optimal health, be communicating synchronistically, consistently, to function properly. As American Architect Louis Sullivan stated: form follows function, but to flip it around, function will inevitably, necessarily, be a byproduct of form as well…
Our myofascial network is our stand- alone matrix of channels and pathways in which all other of the body’s systems are suspended in, and rely upon,, a full representation of a micro-universe; the materials most anatomists have until recently discarded and/or ignored in dissection labs. One thing we need to remember first and foremost about fascia is that “It’s Alive”!Sign Up Now
