FASCIA

What is it?

The most important thing to remember about the Fascial Net is that it is a continuous structure throughout the body’ Lesondak, 2017).


Fascia is ubiquitous, it is everywhere in the body, it is all connected.

It is strong, delicate, a silvery white tissue that surrounds and penetrates every muscle, coats every bone, covers every organ and envelopes every nerve. It separates and interconnects at the same time. It is as varied as the different actions/functions performed by our body. It changes in nature, it can be loose or in sheets, regular, irregular depending upon what it is asked to do.

It is adaptable,

trainable

and still being discovered.

ANATOMY AND MOVEMENT

The human body is designed to move, what ever your movement practice, moving is the key to keeping your mind your body and your fascial system in good shape. 
Research has shown us that certain movements benefit muscle strength, flexibility, bone density, visceral health, fascia fitness and mental health. Fascia and Movement plugs the gap in traditional movement trainings and teaches the movements that give us fascia fitness.
Fascia and Movement provides a general movement training courses as well as specific classes for studio pilates clients and matclients.
