This week, we continue our conversation with Jill Miller to learn even more about the mysterious (and amazing!) connective tissue that literally holds our bodies together, fascia.

We learn more about:
* What the three different layers of fascia are, how each layer functions, and why each one is important
* Where in your own body you can feel the different textures of fascia
* What happens to the fascia when you stretch your muscles
* How to use tools like therapy balls, a yoga mat, or even a hard wood floor to create awareness from the skin to the deep fascia (Hint: Less is more)
* Whether rolling on therapy balls is more effective before or after exercise

Episode 89: All About Your Fascia With Jill Miller (Part I)

I’ve got a special two-part series this week Yoga Tune Up® founder Jill Miller about — you guessed it — fascia. There is more and more info. being shared about fascia. But I’ve found that it sometimes feels esoteric. My goal with these interviews is threefold: I wanted to offer clarity about what fascia is and then talk about why it is so important and how we can apply this info. to our yoga practice. By the end of Part II, I feel like Jill and I dug into all of these questions, so be patient! Fascia is complex and it took me a bit longer than usual for these interviews to land.

We learn more about:
* What exactly fascia is anyway? And why is there some controversy over the definition.
* Why fascia is the “Cinderella story of human anatomy”
* How to incorporate our understanding of fascia into our yoga practice
* Why using a yoga ball to roll one part of your body can help to relieve tension in another part of the body
* The nervous system’s relationship to the fascia system

Episode 88: Looking at Yoga Poses Through the Lens of Yoga Neuromechanics With Robyn Capobianco

Yogis often talk about the nervous system in terms of how it responds to stress. But if you’ve ever wanted to learn more about the science of how the nervous system works, this episode is for you! (Spoiler alert: It controls almost everything related to movement!)

This week, I talked with yoga therapist and PhD candidate Robyn Capobianco, who studies at the Neurophysiology of Movement  Laboratory at the University of Colorado, Boulder. She explains how her research applies to yogis and offers practical ways to apply her findings to avoid yoga injuries and more. It’s fascinating stuff.

We explore:
* How the nervous system works and informs movement
* How the body responds to sensory input, and how it relates to yoga
* How the SI joint differs from other joints in the body and what yogis can do to avoid SI joint pain
* One simple thing you can do to engage the core more in Plank Pose
* Questions the science behind common beliefs like: Is it really unsafe to jump back from Downward-Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana) to Plank Pose? And gets to the bottom of why teachers instruct you to lift your toes in Utkatasana (Chair Pose).

“I really believe in creating a sustainable yoga practice. That means doing the postures, not for the reward of doing the actual pose, but for being in our body, and being in our breath, and really trying to suck the juice out of yoga.” – Robyn Capobianco

“There are no bad movements. There are movements that are appropriate or not appropriate for a certain time and place.” – Robyn Capobianco
