Tracing Connection: Fascial Health through Release and Movement ~
6 Class Series with Kirsten Wilkinson
Do you feel tension, stagnation, pain, or like you are collecting stress in your body?
If the answer to any of these question was “yes”, then it might mean your fascia is ready for some attention and care.
Our fascia holds memory. It is connective, separating, supportive and a major sensory and communication organ in our bodies. It holds together and separates all of our muscles, bones, ligaments, internal organs, and tendons while absorbing impact from daily life. But, our fascia can become damaged, brittle, and misaligned, causing other health symptoms, pain, and stiffness in our bodies.
In this 6 class course we will be exploring practices that elongate your fascia, myofascial release, breath work that supports the massage of your subtle fascia, and tracing our connection between fascia, meridian lines and overall health.
The approach of this class is based on both scientific methodology and personal exploration. Kirsten focuses on 3 of the 12 major fascial lines in our bodies for this series through movement, pressure points, breath, and short informational discussions on anatomy and connection. This course is a continuation of Reframing Your Fascia, however, you do not need to have taken this earlier course to participate.
