Our bodies are wrapped in a vast and continuous matrix of connective tissue called fascia. In recent years, movement therapists have identified a number of myofascial pathways that run through our bodies, connecting specific groups of muscles, ligaments, and tendons and crossing multiple bones and joints. Repetitive movement, poor postural patterns, and past injury can lead to imbalance along these myofascial lines which can result in new injury, decreased range of motion in our joints, and chronic pain.
This workshop will focus on the Arm Lines—four layers of muscle and connective tissue that make it possible for us to interact with, manipulate, and respond to the world around us using our hands and arms. When out of balance, the arm lines can contribute to shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand problems like carpal tunnel, elbow and shoulder impingements, chronic muscular pain in the neck and shoulers and more.
Through myofascial release (self-massage), meditative movement, and with support from a visual presentation, we will develop a clear felt-sense of our own unique fascial bodies and learn to move through the world with an increased sense of grace, ease, balance, and stability.
