Fascial Anatomy and Manual Assisting
Techniques for Yoga Instructors

Join Vanessa for this insightful lecture
and demonstration on Fascial Anatomy
and how to incorporate this into your
manual assists while teaching yoga.

In this 2  hour workshop, Vanessa will go over key areas
of fascial anatomy describing new concepts of
psycho-bio-neurological and physiological function
as well as how to gently incorporate assists in
these areas of the body. Through these subtle
manual cues yoga students can engage in the
poses in a more mindful and anatomically
functionality way.

Fascia also called connective tissue is a
clear sticky fibrous web that weaves in
and around all the structures of the body.
It encompasses the bones while connecting
and encasing muscles, joints and viscera.
This intercellular matrix allows the body to
suspend and move in space in a tensegrity
structure while proper hydration and fitness
of these tissues can increase mobility and
alignment. In conjunction with muscles and
bones, this tissue web houses mass networks
of nerves, arteries, as well as the lymphatic
system essentially linking all systems of the
body through this mass network.

In this workshop, the class will have a brief review of the muscula
r and skeletal regions and then begin examining key fascial
elements within the body. Students will discuss fascial
anatomy, structure, and mobility while linking these concepts
to various systems of the body to understand connective
tissue fascia as a conscious network that functions as an
extension of the neural pathways of the brain. Join Vanessa
on March 28 at 10:00 o’clock to deepen your understanding
of anatomy in a comfortable discussion-based format.
