For a supple pain free body, don't stretch pandiculate!

Fascia our connective tissue becomes stiff under duress. Losing it's moisturizing quality.  Pandiculation. That early morning urge to stretch and yawn is nature's way softening the stiffness in the body. A feel-good, spontaneous unwinding, expanding, shape-shifting motion that revitalises body and mind


Why is pandiculation better than stretching?

"Pandiculation is that nature's way of maintaining the integrity of the myofascial system" (Luiz FernandoBertolucci - 2011)

Pandiculation is a spontaneous urge to stretch and yawn. It's nature's way of restoring suppleness and wellbeing. It's spiral unwinding motion, working with nature's design, making it easier to move and restore suppleness. It's effortless. Suitable for anyone. Especially those who are stiff, tense, in pain or feel stuck.

Here are some other differences between a yoga stretch or sustained stretch at a joint versus pandiculation.

1. Pandiculation is involuntary, spontaneous, intuitive, whole.

A stretch is voluntary. You're having to think about it or be shown what to do.

2. A stretch is like pulling an elastic band. Often focusing at increasing mobility around a joint. Not great for joint integrity.

Pandiculation enhances the auxetic nature of fascia. It's expanding,  energy-efficient and has re-plumping quality. The whole body responds with integrity. Better for vitality, mobility and suppleness.

3. The feel-good of a stretch is pleasurable and involves mostly dopamine the gratification hormone. Which can be addictive.The feel-good of pandiculation leaves you with a sense of well being. Releasing oxytocin, the nurture hormone. Better for regulating the nervous system.

4. With a stretch, you usually stretch at a joint and run the risk of going beyond your range. Running the risk of instability. Especially if you are  hypermobile. 

With pandiculation, you move with integrity. Within your range with no risk of injury.


By the end of your  training you will be able to 

 1. Experience spiral motion, and fasical unwinding. Know the difference between a stretch and pandiculation.

2. Have a basic understanding of the properties of fascia and the felt sense of the body as designed by nature.

3. Learn how to soften the stiffness in the thoracolumbar area. The dense tissue in your lower back that interweaves and is connected with every other tissue that wraps around the body

What others say

Intuitive learning is visceral. It involves pausing and listening to what arises. In this sense, it is a re-membering rather than learning something new because it's already there.


It´changed everything for me, i don´t have to wait to have someone tell me what to do, not even my brain... this is not a new form or a new way to move - this is how we were meant to move, live, breathe, love and enjoy. I´m peeling off my layers and finding me.
