  • Workshop Overview:

    This workshop looks at the role of fascia and the dynamics and mechanics of the moving body; how the muscles rely on fascia for their information and how it responds accordingly to accommodate the required action. We will use movement to recognise this orchestration in action and to know where the tissue is inhibited; you will learn how to work with fascia to best effect free and efficient movement.

    Learn bio-mechanical integration, connected spatial movement, injury response and means for healing.

    Connecting to Fascia is open to all movers and performance seekers and professionals and health influencers looking to work from this new paradigm.


    • Identify and understand the required fascial continuities for the basic movement orientations.
    • Learn to use the Thomas Myers' Anatomy Trains map to guide you around the fascial body.
    • Recognise fascial imbalances, strain and habit patterns that in time become symptoms, syndromes and conditions.
    • Learn to feel sense and effect the organisation of the ‘subtle body’ through movement.
    • Learn a new sensory language that will free and enhance movement.
    • Learn to “restore to reset" neuromyo fascial continuities which influence performance and well-being.


    Why Choose This Workshop?

    Connecting to Fascia looks at the way fascia is hard wired to respond to every moment, adapting accordingly to allow us to move through our day. If the fascia is not available to sufficiently slide and shear as we move, movement is restricted and can be painful; the tissue adapts itself to the limitation and compensates to accommodate leading to strain patterns.

    Over this weekend discover how to identify these problematic areas of movement compensation and its causes, and feel the fascial pathways at play in your own body. Using Thomas Myers Anatomy Trains as a guide, you will learn basic bio-mechanical patterns to observe the fascial continuities and to notice and sense in yourself and others where they are lost or disturbed, how to reconnect and free them and in so doing enhance the efficiency of your every move.

    Re-store to re-set the body to enable it to do what it does best – to keep us well

  • Karin Locher

    For over 17 years Karin Locher has been building on her quest to understand and explore the phenomena of the ‘vital force’ (and lack of) that determines both our health and performance. With the new insights coming from the recovering research of Fascia and with Thomas Myers' revolutionary Anatomy Trains she created a pioneering new application for Spatial Medicine: 'Changing movement, mind and structural-relationships to change the person.'

    Karin’s long standing fascination with the vital force, or lack of, is changing people and changing lives - a methodology that influences to re-store and re-set the neuro-myo-fascial system, thus enabling the body to do what it does best, keep us well. The result is Spatial Medicine. A medicine she believes is far more appropriate for the 21st century symptoms and syndromes that we are seeing.
