Anatomy, Fascia and Biotensetrity

This collection of eHealth Talks focuses on the importance of this essential component of our human makeup, and how it is relevant for health practitioners. We have the latest updates and teachings from the top teachers in the world. Particularly relevant to all yoga practitioners, movement teachers, and manual therapists of any discipline. When you work with the human form you are influencing and being influenced by the global presence of fascia, so it is vital to understand the facts, findings and research to stay relevant, well informed and safe.

Latest News From Fascia Research by Robert Schleip

The interdisciplinary field of fascia research is a very dynamic field. Insights from past research have already contributed to a new understanding of musculoskeletal dynamics in which fascia plays a much more active and versatile role than previously assumed. The latest research has some fascinating implications for all bodywork therapists. Join the co-founder of the International Fascial Congress for a lively exploration of the most recent developments and their practical clinical applications.

Fascia, Anatomy & Movement by Joanne Avison
This eHealth Talk includes material from Joanne Avison’s new book Yoga – Fascia, Anatomy and Movement. If you would like to join the live Talk or access the recording afterwards then please log in or subscribe above. Yoga – Fascia, Anatomy and Movement seeks to bridge the divide between the application of classical anatomy and real-life experiences of practicing and teaching yoga. This book presents fascia as the tensional network of connective tissues; the fabric of the human form. Research into fascia is revealing a whole new context for understanding the human body both at rest and in motion. Whatever your style of yoga, YOGA: Fascia, Anatomy and Movement makes sense of the experience of the moving body in and beyond the yoga classroom. It is a groundbreaking and invaluable resource in the contemporary art and science of yoga.

Biotensegrity: A Balance Of Forces by Joanne Avison
This eHealth Talk expands on the Introduction to Biotensegrity and answers such questions as: Why is elasticity so crucial to our health and resilience? What exactly do we mean by elasticity and how does it relate to Biotensegrity? What specific values does this context bring to the body work table or the movement classroom? As Fascia Research expands, so the technology to understand its characteristics and behaviours in our moving bodies is becoming more refined. It is changing the perspective of how we see and assess the body holistically and, in particular, the value we place on elasticity as a component of adaptability and resilience. New models and metaphors, such as biotensegrity, explain movement and our responses to intervention in new ways. This is valuable, even crucial knowledge for all movement and manual practitioners in the fields of health and human performance. Using the theme of biotensegrity and recognising its range of applications, will provide insight into the value of all different kinds of intervention from a variety of modalities.

Understanding Biotensegrity by Joanne Avison
The first in a series of eHealth Talks on the subject of Biotensegrity with Joanne Avison. This webinar introduces Biotensegrity and answers such questions as: What is it? Why is it so essential to our understanding of Fascia? What are the benefits of appreciating the role of biotensegrity in the human body? How will it enhance my practice? The field of Fascia Research is growing exponentially as more and more is being discovered about the role of the fascial matrix in the living body. How does it change some of the historical theories of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics? Biotensegrity is the name of an emerging field of structural understanding that makes sense of how the fascial matrix is formed and challenges the basis of some classical metaphors. As a principle of living organisation it explains many aspects of how the human body is constructed that fit with – and provide context for – the new discoveries about the Fascia. Basically it helps to make sense of what we actually see and experience in practice. This eHealth Talk will enable students and practitioners to enhance their portfolio of ideas and techniques by providing a context for the architecture of the fascia. We will go on to consider the details of its crucial role in our natural elasticity and resilience in the second Talk in this series. You can find all these eHealth Talks here.
