Therapeutics and Fascial Trains

Therapeutics and Fascial Trains

Led by: Doug Keller

From March 19, 2016 at 2:00 pm until March 19, 2016 at 5:00 pm at Dumbo

The fascial trains identified by Tom Myers in his book ‘Anatomy Trains’ gives teachers a useful tool for recognizing postural imbalances at the root of chronic pain, as well as insights into the use of asana to undo the ‘knots’ of these imbalances. We will cover the basic myofascial lines and their postural influence, as well as basic actions essential to asana practice that address these lines — and can be incorporated simply into general asana classes without exhaustive explanation, for the benefit of these insights into posture based on Myer’s work will be blended with insights into movement — or ‘Movement Impairment Syndromes’ at the root of chronic pain — identified by Shirley Sahrmann. This will help us to work effectively with common challenges faced by yoga students in class, such as hamstring inflexibility — and in the case of flexible people, hyper-mobility. Emphasis in this session will be on lower body issues. Though asanas will be practiced, this session will not be an ‘asana practice.’0/0 (after 3/12)
