About the event
Stiff, stuck, tight, and wanting to feel some freedom? That freedom can be found
through studying the connective tissue that is the framework for the structure of your entire
physical body. In this workshop, you’ll gain an understanding of how this system works, and
you’ll learn the tools to bring it back to a state of optimum health.
Commonly called myofascial release, this practice is an effective technique that complements all
forms of movement.
We’ll discuss the fascial system, its important functions, and how to treat it so it
can serve you properly.
You’ll learn about common trigger points and release techniques, and will be sent a workshop
.pdf for creating a custom release practice specifically for your needs.
This practice will not include vinyasa flow, but common asana poses may be used as a way to
reach specific areas of the body with our release tools. Workshop will include topic study and a
review and demonstration of how to access the most common trigger points.
Bring with you: a yoga mat, a set of tennis balls, and a printout of your workshop handout (will be
sent to you upon registration) with your favorite pens/highlighters/markers to customize your
handout and create your individual practice plan. Wear comfy clothes- anything you would wear to
practice yoga or go to the gym would be appropriate.
