Yoga Anatomy: What Every Teacher (and Practitioner) Should Know About Fascia Although our fascia (a vast network of fibrous connective tissue within the body, pronounced “FAH-sha”) has been with us all along, it's only recently being appreciated for the invaluable role that it plays in the body's health and functioning.

This sequence counteracts hunched posture and gets the blood flowing. This practice includes challenging poses, so work steadily at your own pace. When you finish, you should feel stronger, more open, and more empowered. Key Focal Points: In each twist, focus on keeping your pelvis square and stable so that you create the twist from your mid and upper back. Watch: A video of this Home Practice sequence here.
