In this month’s Book Club meeting Holly Wallis is discussing “Fascia in Motion: Fascia-focused movement for Pilates” by Elizabeth Larkam.
Please jump right in to share your thoughts about this book. We love to hear from you.
There is no arguing that this is a beautiful book. Cleanly organized and ample images to indeed see the myofascial lines in motion.
This is definitely a book you will need to spend a lot of time with. I would say that this text might be approached more as a workbook than theory, and it is chock full of pictures and charts to analyze and process. It can be a challenge to make sense of all of the material in the charts so patience is key.
One month was not enough time to fully absorb the material into an applicable state, so I will continue to explore for quite some time. The benefit of owning this book is the access to view the material on Pilates Anytime using the many QR codes, 125 to be exact, that are sprinkled throughout the book.
Before diving into this book, I would say that prior knowledge of the myofascial lines would be advised.
I am interested to hear how you enjoyed this selection, and also how you have applied the concepts and movements in your work?
Until next time, keep reading!
Yours truly, ✍
