Fascia Yoga Teacher Training

Do you experience a lack of know-how of the most up-to-date science behind yoga practice? Have you ever felt unprepared to teach students with injuries or physical challenges?

Fascia and it's significant role in movement and health is transforming movement and manual therapies. Not only is there a lack of information on fascia and myofascial release, but most of what is taught about fascia in traditional anatomy (if any) is outdated. Research into fascia is revealing a whole new context for understanding the human body both at rest and in motion. Fascia and myofascial release are groundbreaking discoveries that revolutionize how we teach and practice all aspects of yoga, to maximize the difference we can make to others.

What’s inside the course

The course is comprised of eight modules consisting of a variety of lessons. Each lesson includes comprehensive notes, practical demonstrations, guided practices, audio bonuses, and presentations.

Commonly known tools and props for myofascial release, such as balls, are incorporated at one stage during the course. However, those props are just the tip of the iceberg of understanding fascia and applying myofascial release in your practice. This course will show you the applied science behind fascia and myofascial release. Props can be helpful, but yoga in itself is one of the most powerful tools to manipulate and improve the functioning of the fascia matrix. You’ll learn how to appropriately work with rather than against this essential fabric of the body (fascia). You’ll understand yours and your students’ body/ fascia type, and how to tailor yoga practices accordingly for every type of class or student.

1.

MODULE 1: WHAT IS FASCIA?

In this module you will learn why the fascial matrix is so much more than myofascia and myofascial release. We uncover what it is, how it was missed in western history and provide the code to unlock the first of eight best kept secrets. A foundation of fascia fundamentals to build the course upon. Then we put it into practice.

2.

MODULE 2: THE NEW SCIENCE OF BODY ARCHITECTURE

In this module, you will learn how classical biomechanics only tells half the story. We discover how fascia is the 'whole' body architecture and why that makes perfect sense of yogic principles. Ida/Pingala/Sushumna provide the second secret to unlock natural movement and living tensegrity. Then we put that into practice.

3.

MODULE 3: THE ELASTIC BREATH

With Principles one and two in place, you will have a foundation and a fun assignment. Then we begin with the first step to fascia mastery, through the breath. We unlock the secret of folding and the figure eight breath. You can add this practice, to your existing pranayama techniques.

4.

MODULE 4: THE HEART CENTRED EMBRYO

Once the first three principles are in place, we unlock the secrets we all hold within, discovering that we were all embryos and we self-assembled into the bodies we have now. We did that via the fascial matrix – including the myofascia. We consider the heart fascia and this principle unlocks the awareness behind the practices – whatever your style of yoga. You now have half the combination lock and another fun assignment to put it into practice as a growing skill. You are halfway to mastering a real takeaway skill set.

5.

Module 5 : The Fascial Spine

This module makes sense of how the spine works and governs all our movements. We take you step-by-step through how we can see it as an instrument and how to “tune it” safely in any yoga asana. The secret of the spine from embryo to elder is put into practice, preparing the next step in your journey to mastery.

6.

Module 6: The Fascial Limbs

This module unlocks the relationships of the hands and feet to the spine and the secrets of finding ground control; whatever yoga asana or style you practice. You are nearly there in your journey to fascia mastery as we begin to weave all these principles together and into practice.

7.

Module 7: The Elastic Body

When all the principles come together, the result is natural elastic recoil – a “spring in our step”. It is free energy and one of the many reasons why a sound and safe yoga practice is such an asset. This is the class we put into practice to see how each step leads to mastery, from speed to stillness. In principle eight we consider the subtle practices.

8.

Module 8: The Subtle Body

Having completed the eight secrets of fascia mastery, in this final module, we can apply them all in a subtle body practice. Consider each one as a key in a combination lock – and this principle opens the door. Integrated by your completed assignments, you have your own unique resource to create fun, integrated, safely fascia-informed classes, whatever your style of yoga. This will optimize the value and sustainable impact of your classes for your participants and give you confidence and clarity in designing and delivering your yoga offerings.

Course Instructor,

Joanne Avison

Joanne Avison, author, advanced yoga teacher and yoga therapist (C-IAYT) is also a manual practitioner/teacher in structural Integration; her masters’ degree is in Spiritual Sciences. Joanne, author of YOGA: Fascia, Anatomy and Movement (Handspring 2015), teaches ABC (Anatomy Basic Course) bringing anatomy to life. Making sense of fascia can transform teaching and learning experiences in movement and manual therapies. Joanne’s unique presentations distinguish our innate “bio-motional intelligence”.

Honoring new fascia research and the ancient wisdom of sacred geometry, Joanne shows how body, mind, and being remain entirely unique and interconnected, inside and out. From considerable experience in the anatomy dissection laboratory, Joanne is able to make sense, for teachers and practitioners, of how our own bodies are unique instruments, that we can tune and optimize, in our own archetypal ways.

Focusing on Myofascia Training for yoga teachers, Joanne asks “How can we help ourselves to live, breathe and move better, in harmony with nature given our own nature?” This course looks at how we can explore who and what we already are, to bring even more clarity and confidence to our teaching.

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need to learn about the fascia?

Fascia is connective tissue – with multiple roles and expressions in the living body. It defines the shape you are in and that of your clients. It is everywhere in the living body and, once understood, allows you to recognize your client's motion patterns more easily. Fascia plays a major role in proprioception, self-regulation and balance. It also explains the keystones of any practice in terms of intelligent motion and sensory awareness, so you can meet and match your clients where they are – while they learn from you. Optimising their performance means safer practice and compliance to enhance and enjoy the ability to move better.

Do I need to do the course in the order it is presented, or can I skip around?

Fascia mastery for yoga teachers has been designed to build upon the history of anatomy and how the fascia was missed and misunderstood, then redefining how we describe the tissues of the human body. The course then goes into how those tissues move, inclusive of the fascia and the latest research into its forms and functions. All this is closely woven into yoga practice on the mat, so you can experience it for yourself. It is highly recommended therefore that (at least for the first time through the principles) you undertake each one in order of presentation, to ensure the logic is followed and builds in progressive stages to support the strong foundation of your learning experience.

What props do I need?

Can I do this course without previous education?

Yes. We designed this course to be available as a stand-alone education in this style. If you want to teach, a 200-hour yoga teacher training course in any other style (preferably Hatha Yoga) is recommended. A 200-hour course will help you have the foundational knowledge of asanas, give more teaching confidence, and a wide range of general yoga knowledge.

This course specifically focuses only on in-depth knowledge to teach this style of yoga professionally. For this reason, these shorter courses are sometimes called continuing education. If you want to teach this style of yoga only, this course is perfectly suitable.

Do I need to know a lot of anatomy to do this course?

You do not need to know any anatomy to do and enjoy this course. It will help you see how classical anatomy (of bits) and more contemporary anatomy of meridians (bands) doesn’t explain connected anatomy of (living) bodies. We are already whole, complete and connected; to ourselves and each other. Fascia mastery explains how, why and what we need to know to make the most of that information to enhance our teaching – whatever style we practice.

Do I need to do the practical aspects?

Fascia mastery invites you as a teacher to learn and listen (from the visual and audio presentations) and also to listen to your own experience. As such, there are practical invitations with assignments and suggestions for you to take into your own practice. This enables you to build a vocabulary of new language and experiences to make sense of the principles for yourself and adapt them to your teaching style.

Do I need to change my yoga style or is there a preferred “Fascia Yoga” way?

Fascia mastery forms the common denominator foundations of living human motions and the “soft matter architecture” in which we do that. From embryo to elder, we live and learn in our bodies. Whatever your style and whatever shape you are in you can appreciate the fascia that you animate, that in turn shapes you. Whatever age and stage of fitness your clients find themselves, your understanding will deepen your sense of appropriate styles to best serve their needs. Everyone is “built” of fascia and this course shows how that is known and how you can optimise that knowledge, irrespective of your teaching style.

Do I need a lot of books (anatomy, physiology, embryology etc) to study this course?

Fascia mastery is self-contained, accessible, presented in clear stages and easy to understand and participate in.  A great deal of the course invites you to experience and note your own experiences to find out how your body already “speaks fascia” in terms of your natural movements and forms when you are doing yoga on the mat. The course brings fluency and translation of movement. While you are invited to study further if you wish, the emphasis is on the practical exploration of living anatomy (for you) rather than on book study or academic rote learning.
