podcast ep 13: fascia, anatomy, and movement with joanne sarah avison

You can listen below, and you can also listen in iTunes and Google Play and pretty much anywhere else podcasts are played, including Spotify!

The brilliant and indefatigable Joanne Sarah Avison, Certified Yoga Therapist, Structural Integration practitioner, and author of Yoga: Fascia, Anatomy and Movement joins me for a conversation. Joanne weaves together anatomy, history, architecture, motherhood, teaching, reconceptualizing how we talk about movement needs, sacred geometry - the list goes on! You have to listen to believe it.

Joanne takes us through a tour of the definition of fascia, biotensegrity, and a reconceptualization of the body and mind away from the language of biomechanics. We touch on the balance of forces in the body, and the fascia as a sensory organ, but you also get a tour through the historical politics of cadaver work and the sacred geometry of our makeup!

Those of you with no experience with fascia and anatomy trains education may be bowled over by the vastness of information coming at you, but Joanne sprinkles our conversation with personal stories, metaphors, and tangents that will keep you fascinated. Those of you with tons of education in this area will want her to come back for another chat and to read more from Joanne.

Fortunately for all of us across the pond, some online learning is coming available from her soon.
