Workshop #2258

Fascia-Focused Pilates

1 hr 55 min - Workshop


Join Elizabeth Larkam and Tom Myers in this workshop that explores the principles of fascia oriented training. Elizabeth will demonstrate sequences of exercises to train the fascia, and then Tom will break down what is happening in the body. They will share how these movements and ideas translate when you are in motion and standing. They will also show how elastic recoil is essential so the body can restore itself to its natural position.


- Learn how the different fascial lines are organized in the body and how to keep them balanced

- Learn how to improve and maintain the elasticity in your body

- Learn about the neuromyofascial web and how it is more relevant than the term musculo-skeletal

Once you purchase the workshop, you will have access to the pdf attachment. It will be located underneath the description.
What You'll Need: Cadillac, Wunda Chair, Reformer, Jump Board, Magic Circle

It must be the future of video workshops! I love this "conversation" approach, where two of the most interesting minds around meet to move beyond a simple presentation. Each of them explain some blind spot of the other, and push the workshop to a new level of clearness. I hope to see workshops like this again and again

I have done the Pilates exercises with Elizabeth and read Anatomy Trains. I have done pilates while contemplating what I learned in Anatomy Trains. WOW! THIS WORKSHOP! Dovetailing the two, guiding my thinking and giving me guided experience in the lines of my body gives me the confidence and depth of understanding I need to BEGIN to move to the next level in my teaching. I'm sure I still have questions..... Thank you Tom Myers and Elizabeth. The synergy between you is evident

interesting comment in Chapter 2 that the transversus is (1) very thin and (2) very difficult to engage in isolation. Should make Pilates instructors rethink their queuing.

Amazing and useful! Really enjoying this workshop! My sense is that a movement practice like aikido would facilitate facial elasticity in that it requires amongst other things conscious but quick movement. Paying attention in a playful way allows the whole system to respond with bounce, so does this bounce that is brought about through the variety of ways of landing with the arms in the first sequence of chapter 3 also translate into the principle of reversibility that is integral to Alexander and feldenkrais work?
Mastaneh, Thank you for your insightful comments. Collagen can shorten much more quickly than muscle fibers can contract. Human fasciae has a kinetic storage capacity similar to kangaroos and gazelles. Elastic Recoil may occur when the loaded collagen tissue has a high elastic storage capacity. Training techniques that require specific timing responses to resistance and gravity may develop the elastic storage capacity of fascia. It is possible that some aspects of Aikido develop Elastic Recoil. Alexander Technique and Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement are exceedingly valuable somatic practices that offer tremendous benefits. Neither excels in training Elastic Recoil. Moshe Feldenkrais earned his black belt in judo prior to developing his own Practice. He create some Awareness Through Movement Lessons inspired by judo that may contribute to Elastic Recoil.
