From Old-School Dynamic Stretches to Modern Fascia Yoga

The old-school stretching exercises popular in the early 20th century have been long considered outdated.

We are now better understanding how The old-school stretching exercises popular in the early 20th century have been long considered outdated. In light of modern fascia research, however, these exercises are making their way back into the spotlight. We are now better understanding how such exercises actually train the fascial sheaths in our body, and promote overall physical health. Understanding how this works can provide us with inspiration in our own yoga practice, where flexibility is often a main component. With the proper training, we can improve the elasticity and shock-absorbing properties of our fascia, thus avoiding unnecessary injury.
