Fascia or connective tissue is the material that binds the body together. It wraps every muscle, every muscle fiber, and every structure in the body, creating a total body sheath known as the myofascia. The elastic tension of these structures gives our body strength and flexibility. The myofascial system is organized within the body based on our movement and our patterns of experience, and can feel substantially different from one side to the other, affecting our perception of balance. Through our yoga practice we learn to engage with our own experience of the myofascia, by developing our soft tissue awareness, to bring about change in the body structure, organization, posture and balance.
