Advanced Yoga Anatomy Training 2 – The Fascial Web, Meridians, Biotensegrity and Yoga

June 8th-11th with Carol Murphy

@ The Yoga Shala, Gort, Co. Galway, Ireland

Fee for this 4 day course is 520 euro’s

Anatomy 1 looks at the Biomechanics of yoga, who the muscles work is isolation. This training, in comparison, looks at how the muscle work together in Fascial Trains, in relation to movement, based on the work of Tom Myers. It also explores the fascial web, the connective tissue that envelopes the organs, muscles and bones. Whereas biomechanics is very effective at looking at muscles in relation to agonist /antagonist relationships (Reciprocal Inhibition), the biotensegrity perspective looks at the body ‘golbally’, acknowledging how the muscles in the body are connected into what Myers’ call “anatomy trains’ also know as ‘Fascial meridians’. This relates to movement, asana and addressing the ‘source’ of symptoms (covered in Anatomy 3). This course will also explore the connection between fascial meridians and Chinese acupuncture meridians which relate to the organs.
