We are kicking off the new year with one of Kathryn's all-time
favorite speakers. This conversation begins with a definition of
fascia, what it is, how it can be described, and how much things
are changing as our knowledge of the body grows. Gil talks about
how he came to learn about the body from a very disembodied place
himself and how dissection made him realize that what we see in the
books is not what we have under our skin. He also talks about body
diversity and human variation, not just on a joint level but every
aspect of the body. They talk about bodywork and foam rolling, and
Gil remarks that the body is like a baby, we can't beat up on it.
He also comments on the western approach to yoga and how a practice
that is void of interoception can cause people to force their
bodies into shapes that might not be meant for them.
