Fascia is connective tissue that surrounds your muscles, blood vessels, and nerves. When it’s healthy, fascia allows your muscles to slide and glide as you move. But when your fascia gets tight and stuck, it can restrict your movement. Restricted movement can also be the result of holding tension in your body. We all hold tension and gripping in our bodies due to the habitual ways that we sit, stand, and move around in the world with limited awareness. Often we overwork some muscle groups and underwork others creating imbalance.
In this workshop, you will learn how to release the layers of fascia in your body using special tools, stretches, and yoga poses. You will also practice ways to move that are healthy and safe for your hips, knees, and low back. The goal of this workshop is to release fascial “stuckness,” decrease tension, and increase mindful movement.
All levels are welcome. No previous yoga experience required. $35
