30-Hour Yoga for Healthy Fascia Training – Sept – Dec 2024

 

 

This 30-hour BWY-approved online module is designed for experienced yoga students, yoga teachers/therapists and body workers who are interested in learning more about the role of fascia in physiology, movement, biomechanics, pain, and injury prevention/rehabilitation.

The aim of this course is to provide you with the theory, skills, and practical tools to confidently integrate fascial health training principles into your self-practice, group and/or private yoga sessions.

Teachers will therefore find this work of particular benefit when working with students who are experiencing pain, injury, range of movement limitations and impaired proprio- and interoceptive awareness.

 

 

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Have knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, structure, and function of fascia, including its varying types and presentations.
  • Understand the role of fascia in relation to human biomechanics, kinesiology, sensory awareness, range of motion, injury prevention/rehabilitation and pain perception.
  • Explore a new embodied way of conceiving anatomy and movement through principles such as biotensegrity, force transmission and myofascial chains and how these concepts relate to the yoga practice.
  • You will be able to apply this knowledge to create yoga sequences and class plans that promote optimal fascial health and resilience of the major myofascial chains, using a wide-range of tools including myofascial release techniques, elastic loading techniques, various stretching methods and eccentric strength work.
  • Learn the benefits, applications and contraindications of myofascial release work and be provided with specific myofascial protocols to maintain or restore health to all the major joints and myofascial tissues of the body, including restored breathing biomechanics.
  • You will learn about possible disorders and dysfunctions within the fascia and develop skill and confidence in applying fascial health tools in a therapeutic way to address pain, reduced range of motion, injury, and musculoskeletal dysfunction.
