ANATOMY FASCIA IN MOTION | DISCOVERING the Body’s Wisdom
The “Fascia Flow” training introduces the important role of the connective tissue in movement. This latest science which now rocks the movement world is introduced on a level that is easy to understand.
This training explores the lates research on connective tissue and how it applies to movement
Fascia is a complex network of connective tissue that lies just beneath the skin.
Fascia has a key role to play in the everyday healthy functioning of the body.
Our fascial body suit adapts to the changes of load that is placed on the body, it stretches and shifts in the direction that we move. Through the movement of the fascia, it remodels the collagen network, which in turn molds to the body and gives the bodysuit tone.
When we reach a state of calmness and mindfulness our muscles and connective tissue are much more responsive to working.
The slow, rhythmic tempo provided by “Fascia Flow” allowing us to get past resistance in the fascia and work the muscles more effectively, stretch the entire fascial fabric in ways that conventional stretching doesn’t.
Healthy fascia is elastic and resilient. It helps improve movement performance and assists, to a large extent, with injury prevention.
Come inside and explore the wide matrix of the fascial web and its relationship with Odaka and its Flow.

ADVANCED CREATIVE FLOW
Our bodies are an extremely complex network of muscles, articular joints, fascia, ligaments, tendons, bones, other tissues and interconnected organs that work together with synchronicity and no interruptions. The human body has a natural and inborn ability to move in an integrated and functional way, but our daily modern life limits and prevents all of this. Rediscovering and using primordial movements that follow the Motor Archetype activates the nervous system and helps the entire physical and mental apparatus to enter its best and most optimal condition.. Based on 3 elements: 1. Flowing Proprioceptive Control: proprioception is the ability of perceving and recognizing the position of our own body in space and the state of our muscle contraction, even without sight support. Proprioception becomes extremely important in the complex mechanism of body movement control. 2. Functional Articular Mobility: visualizing and having the concept of movement as an integration instead of a segmented series of actions. In this concept of functional mobility power and extension/ stretch sustain the body more than compression. Bones act as internal spacer structural units instead of compression supporters. 3. Flow state of Mind: the art of letting go. To be the best possible version of ourselves putting all the possible attention we can give to our personal practice – regardless our ability to achieve what is usually said to be the perfect pose. Acting this way, we will start to enjoy and value life in each single moment instead of always waiting for the final set goal (most of the times finding ourselves disappointed when things don’t turn out the way we expected).
The 50 hours of this module are included and so can be added to the Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program. These hours are countable for the 500 PLUS and 760 RYT

THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR
Designed to transform the idea of yoga and bring it to a deeper level of awareness
The Ultimate Warrior’s system is based on three pillars: self defense techniques, functional movement and traditional yoga postures. Once learned, “TUW” permits you to recharge and renew your body and mind, increase your life force, self-confidence and personal power in a very short period of time. This system seeks mastery in living through a refined ability to control the mind, emotions and fears. “TUW” does something special, it calms your mind, allowing you to live a fulfilling life in the midst of turmoil.When referencing Martial Arts, it is not in the traditional, combative or self-defense for personal growth usually seen in the discipline. We focus more on the “DO” as a way of understanding oneself where the real combat is to reach the point of not fighting but to add to the unity of negative and compassionate strengths.
IN DEFENCE INTO YOGA
“At the beginning the way is full of words
When we see the way
We forget the words ”
A journey in which every moment of time allows us to observe, suspend, and let go. Return to the essence of gesture a, to the heart of every word and movement and “perceive”, adapt, flow in the observation of what it is. A path in the beating heart of Odaka Yoga and in our intimacy, the essence of every gesture and instant: Grow as a teachers and as human beings, in the way of essence, we rediscover our true Self.
“I want to be happy…
Remove the ego, remove I want, and stay with what is left. “
