Hands-on experience is the best experience
Fit Fascia Solutions is bringing our hands-on learning to beautiful Cosa Rica. Here are the learning objectives for our 5 night, 6 day educational and fun retreat.
With pineapple smoothie in hand, we’re bringing you the current research on the structure and function of the fascial system, why it’s been named the largest organ of the body, and why everybody is talking about it. Participants will be able to identify possible causes of fascial dysfunction, and learn ways to safely address them. You’ll leave with confidence and understanding of a variety of current fascial fitness approaches and be ready and excited to continue your fascial fitness journey.
For the teachers out there, here are the objectives.
Retreat attendees will be able to
- describe the basic structure and components of fascia
- based on research in the last 10 years, list at least three things the fascial system does besides structural support
- understand the relationship between fascia and posture, mobility, and pain
