Interstitium & Fascia: The Space Between Micro Movement and Whole Body Breakthrough
Sunday, March 31st
with Kiersten Jakobsen
In March of 2018, scientists discovered a “new” organ, something they collectively call the “interstitium” — a ubiquitous network of fluid-filled spaces found in fascia (connective tissue) throughout the body, a network yogis have known about for centuries. In some regards, we call these networks “meridians” or even “chakras”, channels along which energy (prana or qi) flows.
In an instant, not only did hard science legitimize the claims of yogis worldwide, it reinvigorated those of us focused on fitness and healing to rethink our approach to intelligent movement and how this movement is inextricably linked to well-being. Thus, this seminar on fascial conditioning was born.
This workshop will consist of two parts. Part one will include a short discussion on the fundamental properties of fascia, the connective tissue housing the interstitium. What is the relationship between the interstitium, fascia, and health? How do we train fascia? How can we build greater strength, flexibility, healing, and recovery through fascial conditioning? Part two will be entirely movement based. We will work our way through a series of dynamic movements via conventional asanas such as Crescent Pose or low lunge. We will seek to address adhesions throughout the body, restore the healthy bounce to our anatomies, and revitalize our total biological systems.
Hot Pilates Workshop
Sunday, March 17th
with Kiersten Jakobsen
Let’s face it: Hot Pilates classes move quick, but that’s what makes them both fun and challenging. At the same time, though, the fast pace doesn’t allow for detailed instruction. As a result, we typically learn as we go and, in the process, wonder if we are “doing it right.” If you are new to Hot Pilates or if you are a seasoned HP practitioner, learning how to move mindfully, powerfully, and progressively without injury is key. In addition, learning how to move with limitations or while recovering from injury is downright critical. In this workshop, we will focus on foundational as well as more advanced moves, zeroing in on common misalignments in order to condition the body towards healthy motor control.
