You are connected You are One
An exploration of fascia in your body, yoga, and movement practice.
Fascia is connective tissue that surrounds, holds, and integrates your muscles, bones, and organs. Fascia infinitely connects each and every part of you into one complete form. This workshop develops an intellectual and embodied understand of how your body balances and interrelates.

Friday, May 17, 6-8:30 PM: Connected as One
Our discussion begins by highlighting basic fascia types and how fascia functions as the largest sense organ in the body. We’ll use ball rolling techniques to explore our myofascial, or ‘muscle’ layer and feel the connection between all parts of our body. This evening’s class is a luxurious opportunity to improve mobility and ease in our bodies.
Leave with a pair of rolling balls and the inspiration and knowledge to use them.
Saturday, May 18
9:30AM - 12PM: Integration in Action
Turn the lens to explore fascia as a support and tension system that holds us together and keeps us safe and springy. During our morning yoga practice we will tap into this fascial support system to help soften tension. Learn to use the whole body to increase space, stability, fluidity, and function.
Learn movement methods for long term mobility and health.
Saturday, May 18, 2-4:30 PM: Slide and Glide
Get in deep. We’ll develop an understanding of the origin of fascia and then feel its subtleties within our body. This practice includes breath work and lots of time with gentle movements lying on our mats. We are sure to feel blissful after this restoring exploration of slide and glide and joint mobility.
Discover how to feel what’s going on in your body on a deeper level.
Sunday, May 19, 12:15 - 2:45PM: Receive & Expand
Explore a multidimensional perspective that encompasses our entire beings and expands interoception (internal body awareness). This morning we highlight tensegrity, beneficial movement theories, equilibrium, and ease. In our practice we explore allowing expansion rather than creating it and receiving support instead of demanding it.
Gain skills to soften tension and help ease pain
Each session begins with an informative talk to develop a deeper understanding of the vastness and significance of fascia’s function and form, followed by a practice to help us feel and integrate our new body perception.
You can expect between 2-2.5 hours of movement and exploration each class. Sessions are designed to be physically and mentally sustainable.
