Explorations of the Fascial Body in Yoga - Barbour Institute, Chester, UK

Lucy believes that we all need freedom to explore, and her study of fascial bodywork and Craniosacral Therapy over the last 3 decades inform this attentive presence to the body-mind, developing inner attention and curiosity. The bodies language is sensation and we need to “listen in” whilst exploring our movement possibilities.

This workshop will be a series of led classes, exploring Asana and particular movements required in the joints in various Yoga Asana. ‘Asana’ simply means posture, so finding the even and balanced posture in each Asana form. The practice of Asana, (postures) involves all the major joints in the body, keeping them healthy in movement, and strong in stillness.

Over stretching can cause the core muscles, (iIliopsoas) to tighten, in the body’s intelligent plight to stabilise. We will orient to the joints with curiosity, using some Muscle Energy techniques to lengthen shortened muscles, without stress to the tendons and ligaments. The Workshop will then orient to the fascial meridians/lines developed by Tom Myers, to explore how the various Asana, take up these lines of action and tensegrity through the body, making shapes with our bodies to engage the specific lines. Practicing Asana in this way brings balanced form, with great attention to body listening.

 

Saturday 7 September 2024 - Led Class - 10.00 - 12.30

An introduction to Asana in a flowing form, with attention to gentle and focused breathing.

In this class we will warm up the body with flexion and extension patterns, our original patterns of movement from our earliest years. From here we will move to standing and explore our legs in relationship to gravity and the ground, from the feet up. The Asana act as a vehicle for our curiosity, with an orientation to space in the joints - reaching out away from the core/midline. We will explore balancing in motion and in stillness, observing patterns of compensation, and engaging correct muscles to support. Moving to the floor, the seated Asana will give us a new sense of foundation with direct connection to the pelvis. Using various Asana to explore the connection of the pelvis to the spine and ribcage, neck and head.

Saturday 7 September 2024 - Led Class 13.30 - 16.00

Using some of the fascial meridians/lines developed by Tom Myers, we will Explore how various Asana take up these lines of action and tensegrity through the body. This will be an explorative class, making shapes with our bodies to engage the specific lines. We will explore the Superficial Back line, the deep front line, and the lateral line in Asana.

Sunday 8 September 2024 - Led Class 10.00 - 12.30

A flowing class, with attention to the breath. A brief encounter with the diaphragm orienting to softening and relaxing before we begin. An orientation to breath, diaphragmatic breathing vs upper chest breathing and the relationship to sympathetic and parasympathetic states. Using a gentle breath, we will explore how the way we breathe, can help the fascia to soften and release. This Led session will move through a series of Asana in Pose/Counterpose, incorporating Muscle Energy Techniques to bring joints into a new state of balanced tension.

Sunday 9 September 2024 Led Class 13.30 - 16.00

Using some of the fascial meridians/lines developed by Tom Myers, we will Explore how various Asana take up these lines of action and tensegrity through the body. This will be an explorative class, making shapes with our bodies to engage the specific lines. We will explore the spiral line in Asana twists, and the arm lines, exploring the shoulder girdle and various movements in the upper body to assist binding and shoulder freedom. A much needed antidote for the demands placed on our necks and shoulders.
