Embodying your fascia in movement. 

Time stamps:

0:00 mins

Expand our experience of our embodiment. Embodiment anchors us to our human body and we are all connected by that human experience. The body is a gift to be received and explored. 

We notice differences to appreciate that which unites us all. 

Embodiment as being present, consciously aware of our bodies and beyond. 

Where it all began going from an academic who spent most of his time at his desk to studying massage and anatomy and then moving to the lab and science to exploring fascia – in this atom in the universe and from that the human form.

Q & A

Bio Gil Hedley

For the past 29 years, through Hands-On Human Dissection Workshops in the laboratory, worldwide lecture presentations, and online events, I have encouraged thousands of fellow “somanauts” to appreciate, explore, and embody the wonders of the human form.

There are plenty of free resources here for those who are simply curious to learn more about our shared human form. For those of you who are interested in deeper and more specific anatomical explorations, my Explorer Membership includes hundreds of hours of continuing education to support your professional work from an Integral Anatomy perspective. 


Thanks for listening!
