Fascia Comes to Costco
Costco Connections magazine has a piece on yin yoga this month and it talks about fascia. Hana Medina writes: Yin yoga will not make you break a sweat, but it is working some very necessary areas of your body: the fascia, also called connective tissues. “The fascia is the muscular fibrous connective tissue that’s enveloping every muscle, but also every organ in the human body,” says Dr. Robert Schleip, who leads the Fascia Research Group at Ulm University in Munich. He explains that this web-like structure holds muscles and organs in place, and also makes up tendons, ligaments and joint capsules. The fascia is central to mobility. Find it here.
PS: Ulm University is in Ulm, not Munich. Oops.
