Fascia & Movement CPD Workshop

How to teach a class in an embodied way… and why


If you are looking to teach from a more holistic, embodied and integrative approach, incorporating somatic and fascial movements to aid focus and soft tissue release, then this workshop is for you!

“Absolutely fabulous! I always enjoy the way you teach, explain and describe things so that it is clear in my mind. Thank you!”

Looking at the human body from a fascial perspective, as a 3D multi-dimensional, interconnected structure, with it’s own innate wisdom and intelligence, we will explore a variety of movements you can offer within your existing classes to facilitate a more embodied, intuitive and interconnected approach.

In this 3-hour workshop, Clare Francis will guide you through a class so that you can embody this for yourselves. We will consider Tom Myers Anatomy Trains and then open up to a broader perspective, ultimately exploring how we can listen, feel and respond to bodily sensations from within for a more intuitive, student led experience. We will also discuss the numerous health benefits of this.

We will review fascia, its relationship to the nervous system and it’s ability to communicate and we will also visit the breath, posas and neurogenic release. Then we will brainstorm the use of language to invite a more felt sense, embodied experience, and look at ways of incorporating the fascial model into your existing teaching.

Weaving spirals, circles, undulations, pandiculations, pulsations, primal and intuitive movements, recoiling, rhythmic changes, repetition, shaking and release within a regular class invites your students to explore multi-dimensional movements which may open up new pathways, encourage self-healing, invite interception, increase the mind / body connection and enhance self-awareness, posture, release and presence. It will also add an additional layer to teaching from a more linear, traditional, anatomical perspective.

“Thank you for a great CPD – very informative and fun!
