Event description

Description

Come and join us as we present a 3 hour overview of the importance of the fascia in the body. Fascia is the connective tissue that ensheaths every muscle, bone, nerve and organ in the body. More than just insulation, fascia responds to how we use, and mis-use, our bodies, giving us support and and elasticity in equal measure. It also has a very intimate relationship with our nervous system and brain. Fascia is the "missing link" in the mind/body connection.

Students will also get a basic understanding of how fascia forms bodywide patterns of movement and stability, explore these patterns in asana, and gain an understanding of why some of your least favorite poses may be exactly the ones you need to explore in order to enjoy a healthier, more integrated body.

David Lesondak is an allied health member in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), where he maintains a clinical practice in structural integration, visceral manipulation, and other fascial modalities at UPMC’s Center for Integrative Medicine. He has been a clinical bodyworker/structural integrator for over 25 years. Certified in Kinesis Myofascial Therapy by Thomas Myers, he is also a Board Certified Structural Integrator, Fascial Fitness Trainer, Visceral Manipulator via the Barral Institute and also certified by Ann and Chris Frederick as a Fascial Stretch Therapist, Level One.

His upcoming book, Fascia: What it is and Why it Matters will be published by Handspring Press in July of 2017
