Plasticity and Fascia
Fascia is the connective tissue that weaves throughout the entire body. It makes up our tendons, ligaments, and over 30 percent of our muscle. The majority of our flexibility and limitation in movement comes from the restrictions of our fascia.
Plasticity refers to fascia changing its length and retaining its shape. When fascia is stretched, bonds that hold the fascia together are altered and new bonds form. This remolding of fascia promotes improved mobility by reducing tension and rigidity.
In this workshop we will stretch all five major fascial lines, holding poses for 8 to 10 breaths to allow enough time to stretch into the fascia.
Saturday, February 23rd; 2-4:00pm
Blissful Flow is a soulful journey to ignite magic in your body, mind and heart with creative choreography of dynamic asana flow, music and Vedic wisdom. We will begin class with devotional poetry and mantra music, followed by a fluid wave of movements blended into a garland of poses on a thread of breath.
Fluid vinyasa choreography movements remind us of the temporary nature of our lives, circumstances, and experiences. Music and mantra evokes innate feelings of love, compassion, and gratitude.
For dessert, relax and restore with an extended guided Savasana meditation accompanied by a lush tapestry of soothing sounds in the form of live music.
Ignite magic in your journey of life.
