Fascia and Anatomy trains – new research and upcoming workshops in 2015

dorisDoris Pasteleur Hall and I traveled to California to study with Marie Jose Blom’s workshop on fascia. Marie Jose had just attended an exciting conference on fascia in Germany this fall. New research is coming out that will change how we understand how the body organizes to move. We are learning that fascia has its own nervous system that helps us to function.

Marie Jose Blom’s  and Doris’ workshop, Anatomy Trains has given my own body new flexibility and connections. Applying these new concepts in my teaching has brought amazing results.

Doris will continue her series on Anatomy Trains in 2015.IMG_1128
