This was so much fun to do and of course very topical at the moment coming shortly after the Fascial Research Congress. Joanne Avison is a yoga teacher and author of the book entitled Yoga Fascia Anatomy and Movement and I was lucky enough to be able to interview her when I was back in the UK. The interview runs at two and a half hours and we only realized it was time to stop because it was getting dark. That’s what happens when you get anatomy geeks together 🙂
What I have done is to break it into 4 parts to make for easier watching and I will just add them here as soon as I can upload them (they are edited and ready to go but sorry to say I am working with terrible Indian connection now). The good news is that the interview as well as the book are aimed at making some useful insights in understanding the emerging appreciation for the important roles fascia plays and how these ideas can be implemented in the way we practice yoga. I really hope you enjoy!
And Part 2
I love all of the content that you produced around the art of yoga and its potential to help with the fascia layer of the body. If people liked this and wanted to do more in their own home, there is a FasciaYoga App that was created by a woman named Ashley Black. She is no yoga expert, but she has studied the Fascia layer of the body in such depth that she is able to apply many different techniques including yoga to help keep the Fascia layer of the body working properly and as it should be as not to hinder your muscles and cause pain, but the exact opposite alleviating pain caused by unhealthy fascia.
Here is an article that caught my attention from a reporter who used her application to do fasciaYoga:
Check it out when you can. It goes in line with everything Ms. Avison is saying. Happy FasciaYogaing!
