Could it be that most of what we’ve learned about muscle anatomy and the biomechanics of movement is wrong—or at the very least, not the full picture? Robin is working with Tom Myers of Anatomy Trains to help you understand your fascia and its immense role in your health. 

In a groundbreaking new online course, Fascia and the New Anatomy of the Body, Tom and Robin come together to offer a revolutionary perspective on fascia as it pertains to movement in general and the practice of yoga specifically. 

For more than 400 years, the field of anatomy has been dominated by Newtonian biomechanics, which views muscle action in terms of levers and pulleys. However, the dynamics of movement are far more complex, says Tom Myers, author of Anatomy Trains.

“You are about 70 trillion cells,” Myers explains. “Fascia is the web that holds them all together in their proper placement. Understanding fascia is essential to understanding the dance between stability and movement.”

What does this all mean for your yoga practice? A lot, as it turns out. In a groundbreaking new online course, Fascia and the New Anatomy of the Body, Tom Myers and yoga therapist Robin Rothenberg, founder of Essential Yoga Therapy, come together to offer a revolutionary perspective on fascia as it pertains to movement in general and the practice of yoga specifically.
