8-week series on the Fascial System with Kathleen Rea
Thursday morning online classes for those who want to study the functional movement, through experiential movement, discourse, and applicable anatomy demonstrations. The workshop will be lead by Axis Syllabus teacher candidate Kathleen Rea. This Jan 7 to Feb 25, 2021, eight-week series will look at our Fascial system. Fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider's web or a sweater. Fascia is very densely woven, covering and interpenetrating every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, and vein, as well as, all of our internal organs including the heart, lungs, brain, and spinal cord. In this series, we will look at facial-lines, workouts and ways of moving that may promote help enhance facial elasticity.
WHAT IS THE AXIS SYLLABUS?
The Axis Syllabus is a compendium or encyclopedia of information relevant to the training, preparation, and performance of the moving human body anatomical attributes and ways of moving that are basically safe and energy conservative. By referring to physics, anatomy, and relevant scientific data from various fields, The Axis Syllabus provides comparative data on flexibility, strength, alignment, injuries, and movement practices. Teachers of the Axis Syllabus use these references to inform their movement choices to explore the what where and how of efficiency and safe risk-taking, common-sense applications of principles that apply to every-life activities as well, such as, climbing, horseback riding, house-cleaning, construction work, sports, dance, running, etc. For more info see http://axissyllabus.org/. Those that want to be involved in the Axis Syllabus, form an international community through the ASIRN a dynamic and interactive forum of teachers, researchers, and students. https://axisforums.org/index.php
