‘First, many think of fascia as a glorified body stocking – a seamless piece of tissue that cling film wraps you just underneath the skin. While this is true of the superficial fascia, it’s important to understand it is a richly multi-dimensional tissue that forms your internal soft tissue architecture.
From the superficial (“body stocking”) fascia, it dives deep and forms the pods (called fascicles) that actually create your musculature like a honeycomb from the inside out. Imagine what it looks like when you bite into a wedge of orange and then look at those individually wrapped pods of juice. We’re like that too! Fascia also connects muscle to bone (tendons are considered a part of the fascial system), and bone to bone (ligaments are also considered a part of the fascial system), slings your organ structures, cushions your vertebrae (yep, your discs are considered a part of this system, too), and wraps your bones.’

We will be holding one day introductory workshop dedicated to body workers and movement professionals, who have a passion for movement and want to immerse themselves into the embodiment of integral anatomy.
Charlotte and Sally have spent many years teaching Pilates, Garuda, Dance and Equipment Pilates. They recently completed a 5 month intensive Fascial Anatomy course with Ana Barretxeguren and are keen to share their knowledge with body workers.
In this interactive and practical workshop, we hope to give you an understanding of the importance of fascia and how it integrates with all the other systems of the body.
