Fascia is the biological fabric and glue that holds our bodies together. It covers us from head to toe in a 3D spider web of callogen fibers, connecting everything. In bodywork such as massage therapy, physical therapy, pilates and hatha yoga much focus is put on optimal bone alignment and muscle health. Fascia, long overlooked, seems to be getting it’s due as an important part of spatial functioning and health. For more info on this topic check out the Anatomy Trains website. There are many great audio recordings on this page explaining the importance of fascia including one titled Fascia and Yoga. Anatomy Trains and KMI (Kinesis Myofascial Integration) was developed by Tom Myers and is an extension of the work of Ida Rolf, Moshe Feldenkrais and Buckminster Fuller.
