Fascial Anatomy movement of the body

Gil teaches a functional approach to understand the body in Yoga. An aesthetic approach to yoga focuses on how a pose looks, or worse, how it is “supposed” to look! A functional approach to yoga first determines what part of your body the pose was intended to exercise and then adapts the archetype to everyone’s unique skeleton. The result is less pain, less frustration, and a yoga practice that is completely your own, and develope a body that feels Fit Flexibel Mobile and Strong.
