What is fascia?

Fascia is the giant-living-knitting fabric that holds us together and is the body’s largest sensory organ! Its health is kind of a big deal.

So why are you just hearing about it? 

Until recently, fascia’s significance evaded Western science but we now know that myofascial release (the de-adhering, detoxifying and untangling of deep fascial tissues) effectively reduces pain, stress, recovery-time and the occurrence of injury while improving energy levels, well-being, posture, core-integration, anatomical understanding, proprioception and bolsters the immune, respiratory, muscular, skeletal, circulatory and nervous systems — to name a few!

In this hands-on course you will gain knowledge to help yourself and/or your students, friends and family:

  • Effectively Self-Massage to Reduce Pain, Tension and More!
  • Restore Range of Motion Post-Surgery or Injury
  • Prevent Injury on and off the Yoga Mat
  • Use Myofascial Release to Progress Toward Peak Yoga Poses and Athletic Endeavors
  • Feel better in Your Body!!!

Come ready to take-in stimulating lectures that will expand your anatomical and asana understanding, participate in an extended self-massage session (with grippy pliable Yoga Tune Up Balls) as well as a sweaty vinyasa and MFR practice and a highly informative and nurturing hatha and MFR practice (both asana classes will be taught for all levels).

*You don’t need to be a yoga teacher to participate! This training is open to all mind-body-spirit enthusiasts with at least 2 years of yoga experience and a foundational understanding of anatomy. Massage therapists, physical therapists, physical trainers, dancers, etc., join us!
