Fascia-focused movement: principles and practices for movement educators and manual therapists

N.B. This workshop is held at the Crowne Plaza

The design of Fascia-focused movement programs requires new consideration of all elements of program design. Research on the neuromyofascia system suggests new criteria for exercise sequencing, new choices of movement tempo and rhythm and different language for verbal cueing as well as clarification of the quality and direction of touch cues. An overview of the current research and publications on fascia in motion prepares movement educators and therapists to apply these findings to the practice and teaching of mat sequences. No props or apparatus are required. It is useful to have access to a stable wall. The sequences include movements that support standing balance and gait. They are practiced in side lying, quadruped, supine, bridging, prone, kneeling, standing and standing on one leg. Movements that develop elastic recoil are addressed. Recommendations are made for clients with hip or knee replacement or other conditions that limit mobility.
