01 Fascia and Movement

This workshops is a great tool for dancers, acrobats, actors, yoga teachers and other professionals to study the living anatomy of myofascial chains and to understand movement dynamics in an easy way.  It can help to reorganize the body and to direct practice and teaching in a healthy way. The material is based on the research of Tom Meyers/Robert Schleip and others, who through their studies about fascia and its qualities are revolutioning  the way in which we see body and movement. We will cover the general qualities of the tissue and its organization, the superficial fascia and the myofascial chains going from the most superficial to the deepest, using theory, images, movement and touch.

Fascia and Movement

The fascia is a 3- dimensional network and a tissue that covers, protects and gives form to all structures in the body. It's a fibrous material in a regular and ideal tension that enables  our vertical posture. It is capable of low energy movement and is full of sensory receptors which leads to an easy way of moving and to a complete perceptive image of our body.

It's a tissue with renovating dynamics that adjust to postural habits and patterns, but transforms constantly giving the option of reeducation and new self awareness.  The myofascial chains connect paths which include very distant points of our body and transfer forces along bones, muscles, joints and fascia.

Getting to know these chains and the qualities of fascia, can help enormously to improve technical skills and understand better and how are the impulses travelling and when injuries are produced. It  gives a total and deep sensation of movement.

I offer this material in an organic way, using many pedagogical ways and mainly experiential elements to assimilate this in an integrating and pleasant way. I base my teaching in my medical studies, somatic movement, fascia research and my own experience with dance and circus.
