"Fascia" has become a recent "buzz word" in the physical therapy community. Fascia is an extensive network of connective tissue that supports and holds your muscles and vital organs in place. This networking, when healthy, should glide with your muscles as you move. Fascia can become tight and dehydrated due to injury, repetitive motions or faulty posture, leading to physical restrictions, discomfort, and possible pain.
Self-myofascial release can be a wonderful compliment to your yoga practice. Gently rolling muscle groups over therapy or tennis balls, can release and hydrate taunt fascia, allowing increased mobility. Whether you want to maintain healthy fascia, or have some tight, problematic areas that you want to learn how to release, this workshop is for you!
In this Workshop You will Learn:
The anatomy and physiology of fascia: how it functions when healthy, and when acutely or chronically injured
How to use therapy or tennis balls to hydrate and release fascia - we will be applying this technique from head to toes!
What to Bring:
Yourself in comfortable clothing and your yoga mat
We have tennis balls, or bring 2 tennis or therapy balls, if you wish to use your own
A tube or knee sock that the balls will fit into side-by-side
