Core topic of the series: Train muscles and fascia consciously
Every movement is myofascial, however, not every movement engages muscles and fascia in the same way. An exercise can focus on muscular properties or fascial qualities. And depending on the kind of movement you do, the ratio can be very different; either favouring muscles or favouring fascia. Experience the difference between a muscular-focussed Pilates exercise and the myofascial interplay of a Slings in Motion movement.
