Episode 90: All About Your Fascia with Jill Miller (Part II)

Jill Miller Podcast | Yogaland Podcast

This week on the podcast, 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)

Jill Miller Yoga Podcast | Yogaland Podcast | All About Fascia

I’ve got a special two-part series this week with Jill Miller, Yoga Tune Up® founder, 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 74: Jill Miller Talks Honestly About Hip Replacement Surgery & How Yoga is in Need of a Tune Up

Jill Miller is the creator of Yoga Tune Up® and The Roll Model Method® — a self care method that utilizes specific poses, sequences, and self massage tools to help you tune into your body’s “blind spots.” Jill’s method can help ease aches and pains, it can soothe your nervous system, and increase proprioception — that important ability to feel where your body is in space.

Just before this interview, Jill made the announcement that years of wear and tear on her body (including yoga practice) have led to the need for a hip replacement. Understandably, the response in the yoga community was one of shock, curiosity, and even some judgment. Jill was kind enough to share her story — what she thinks led her to this point, what she would do differently, and why she’s not throwing yoga under the bus.
