Mapping The Body ~ Anatomical Meridians in Praxis
a 10-Hour Online Training with Giustina Easton
Live on Zoom with One Month Vimeo Replays
Saturdays and Sundays, October 21 & 22, 28 & 29 @11am ET
(see full schedule below)
While meridian systems in Eastern theories such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) target pathways that connect to organs and their specific functions- anatomical meridians are similar in their structure, yet vary in functionality.
Anatomical meridian lines shape our posture, the way we move in space, and how we perceive our somatic landscape through interoception. The anatomy of myofascial meridians are linked through the connective tissue matrix known as fascia, which surrounds and binds our entire form from head to toe. Fascia stabilizes our muscular system, compartmentalizes our organs, and is a key component to body-mind functionality and somatic resourcefulness.
We can utilize this understanding of fascial systems through actionable intelligence–cultivating expansion and efficiency in our posture, walking, and body-minded movement practices through informed movement-based practices that target the map the whole fascial body.
