Yoga for Myofascial Release: Enhancing the Pliability of the Bodywide Fascial Network

“A living organism is a vast sea of energy and information that flows through the myofascial system as a hologram. It is dynamic and fluid with all components, always in instant and continuous communication.”

—John F. Barnes, P.T., L.M.T.

Enrich and deepen your yoga practice and yoga teaching by learning how to tap into the powerful energies of the myofascial system during your asana practice.

The fascial system is vital not just to our structural health, but to the health of the body as a whole. The fascial system surrounds, supports, and integrates our muscles, organs, and even our cells. It is a multi-dimensional system, essential to the flow of information and vital energy—prana, or chi—in the body.

Learn how to add myofascial release to your yoga practice to help remove restrictions and trauma in this vital system. The myofascial system gets limited and dehydrated over time, as trauma, inflammation, or unresolved emotional holdings get lodged in the system. Myofascial restrictions hold many people back in their yoga practice.

“Many yoga students complain of tight or stiff muscles that don’t respond to traditional stretching in yoga postures,” says webinar presenter Chrys Kub. “In these cases, the tight muscles often have myofascial restrictions that cause weakness and fatigue. These may even cause other muscles to tighten in areas of referred pain. Without addressing the myofascial system, it is difficult to return the body to a balanced energetic state.”

Discover how to tap into the myofascial system in your yoga practice. Myofascial release offers a powerful tool to enrich your own yoga practice. If you are a yoga teacher, it will give you unique techniques to help your students bring their practice to new levels of discovery and enjoyment.

A myofascial release is a powerful tool for healing the body and mind. As trauma and restrictions in the myofascial system clear up, it enhances the flow of energy, information, and consciousness throughout the extended body-mind. The result is a greater sense of freedom, more energy, and enhanced health and well-being.

In this course, physical therapist and yoga therapist Chrys Kub goes into detail on how to create a yoga practice, which facilitates the release of myofascial restrictions.

What You Will Learn:

  • Get a deeper understanding of the myofascial system, its importance for the body, and how myofascial restrictions or trigger points get lodged in the body over time.
  • Learn how myofascial release helps the body distribute information more easily, ridding us of the blocks in energy, which create pain and dysfunction on all levels, mentally, emotionally, and physically.
  • Learn how healing can be facilitated through myofascial release, and learn new techniques to incorporate in your own practice, in the practice of your students and clients to integrate myofascial release in one’s yoga practice.
