Hips and Hamstings Roll and Release Workshop
Do you hold tension and stress in your body?
Feeling a little stiff from sitting for too long?
General tightness from exercising?
Are you a runner or cyclist with lower body tightness?
If the answer to any of the above is yes, we would love you to join us for our Myofasical Deep Stretch (Yin Yoga) Workshop to target the tightness that lives in your hips and hamstrings!
Myofascia, pronounced “my o faashaa”, is the dense tough tissue that surrounds and covers all your muscles and bones. Under a microscope, it resembles a spider web or fish net. When we stop moving, this tissue toughens and sticks together (ewww!). The movement found in yoga is one way of preventing this stiffness developing but can only penetrate so deep. Adding therapy balls allows us to target part of our bodies that are naturally rigid and therefore difficult to reach in our yoga practice alone – it is in this combined approach that lasting release can occur!
In this workshop you will learn to use different therapy balls to release tension and adhesions in the tightest areas of the body. This is a Deep Stretch class on steroids!
Join us for two hours of rolling and stretching, reaching whole new realms of relaxation and flexibility (ok, this might take a few workshops…)!
Please remember to bring your own yoga mat and a towel!
