During the Integrative Wellness Network (IWN) meeting on Tuesday, February 18, Renee Dorn, AFAA-certified group fitness instructor and qigong practice leader, will lead a workshop that reviews the concept of fascia training, discusses how to care for your body’s fascial network and shares examples of static and dynamic fascial training techniques that can result in the development of a strong and resilient body.
While diet and exercise help to keep us healthy, the natural aging process and personal injuries associated with physical activity can sometimes leave us with aches and pains. Therefore, it is important to include specific methodologies that will enhance the elasticity of our fascia —the soft, fibrous connective tissue interwoven between all of the cells and organs within the human body, necessary for systemic resilience.
This connective network plays an important role in our ability to adapt to the demands of exercise. Fascia is designed to be moved in all directions at a variety of different velocities, sofascia-oriented training aims to optimize elasticity and resolve lingering injury. The workshop will include gentle stretching, so participants should wear comfortable clothing. A towel and exercise mat may be helpful but are not required.The general information in this workshop is not intended to substitute or replace your healthcare professional.It’s always recommended to consult your physician before beginning any exercise or weight-loss program.
