If you have chronically tight muscles and/or a weak core, this 2-hour introductory workshop offers a simple, effective, and inexpensive self-care approach. Many of us would benefit from a regular massage to release tight muscles. Here’s an affordable solution. Foam rollers are great for relaxing the body and they can help to strengthen abdominal muscles, improve posture, stretch hard to reach muscles, increase range of motion, as well as break down soft tissue adhesions or trigger points. Foam rolling is the perfect compliment to yoga and other practices because it effectively deactivates knots in the connective tissue. Learn stretches, core strengthening, and self-myofascial release techniques that you can do at home. We incorporate mindful breathing and have fun letting go of tension.
