What is fascia?
Fascia is tissue that surrounds muscles, organs, joints and bones. For a long time, it was thought that chronic pain could only settle in the muscles. But the influence of fascia is much greater. It connects the whole body together as an organic network. When blockages in the fascia arise through fractures, operations, scars or emotions, this affects the entire network. Fascia stimulation with yoga can help restore fascia to health and release emotional and physical blockages.
What is fascia yoga?
Yin & Fascia Therapy is a form of yoga that uses props as fascia balls. By using these in yoga poses, complaints can be solved on a deeper level. For example, yin yoga poses are combined with massage balls. But building strength is also important in keeping the fascia flexible and strengthening the body.
Yin Yoga is a well-known yoga form in which we hold postures for 3-5 minutes to dissolve blockages in the connective tissue. This works physically and emotionally. When extra stimulation is added with fascia balls, you can go even deeper into the connective tissue. Often you can also reach places with fascia balls that you cannot reach with the yin yoga pose alone.
Which complaints can I solve with it?
