    •  Discuss the amazing fascial system, the factors that influence its stiffness, how it senses movement and allows for mobility and stability to exist simultaneously.
    • Identify major fascial anatomy of the spine, hips, legs and feet and their unique 3D convergences. 
    • Explore 3D joint biomechanics of the lower body through functional movements and relationships between bones in movement. 
    • Demonstrate how those 3D relationships sequence through myofascial meridians / long kinetic chains of the body like ripples on a lake.
    • Teach movement flows which transform the concepts of Fascial Fitness, Fascial Stretch Therapy, Functional Movement and TriYoga Flows to the mat for use in classes and private sessions.
    • Enhance the health and resilience of your 3D myofascial body and the role it plays in an active, healthy lifestyle and injury prevention to empower you personally and professionally.
