The ‘Myofascial training’ class is a fascia related training and has roots in yoga, pilates and ‘Slings Myofascial training’.
In the practice the focus is especially on how we can find nourishing movements for our body's fascia system, while we also work with strenght and flexibility.
We use a mat and in some exercises massage balls, yoga blocks or yogaband.
The background for this training is many years of research by manual therapist and 'structural integrator' Tom Meyers with the concept of 'Anatomy trains' and the 12 fascia lines through the body. He has worked with understanding how we use and can take care of our connective tissue from a manual therapist point of view.
Around ten years ago, after studying with Tom, Karin Gurtner started to research and implement the principles of the 'fascia lines' into her already existing work with Piltes and yoga. The result was the international school 'Art of motion academy' with 'Slings myofascial training' which is set together to work with strenght, flexibility, and also hydration, elasticity and glide in the fascia.
