One of the most profound practices that help you to release the body deeply, this is a low impact class combining long Yin yoga holds, myofascial release and guided relaxation. Our bodies hold tension, physically & emotionally. From the body holding its posture from day to day, injuries, imbalance, muscle weakness/tightness and habitual patterns we can feel achey, tired and sometime clunky in our bodies. This delicious practice releases the whole body. We take our time to move slowly through the postures. We also use a ball or hands to massage, spread and manipulate the fascia (our inner spider web like fabric). After rolling and massaging the different fascial meridian lines we arrange ourselves into our Yin postures, using cushions and all things supportive to settle into the pose for 2-3 minutes.

What is Myofascial release? Fascia is a fabric like web that surrounds and supports muscles, organs, bones and nerve fibers. It interweaves itself within the WHOLE body. This connective tissue does more than provide internal structure; fascia has nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin. When stressed, it tightens up. It’s designed to stretch as you move and if we are doing repetitive movements that over work an area of the body, when we become sedentary and if we experience trauma like an injury/surgery even emotional this will cause the fascia to tighten around muscles, which can then limit mobility and cause painful knots, aches and tightness to develop.
+ Reduces stress & anxiety
+ Improves circulation
+ Aids sleep
+ Calms the mind
+ Improves range of movement
+ Increases flexibility
+ Aids in rehabilitating injuries
Within this class we learn techniques to release fascia, loosing and lubricating tight and tender spots. You will leave practice lighter, more spacious, the body will feel easier to move, calmer and more fluid. Opening the physical body unlocks the mind, hand in hand they are connected, a stressful mind = tight and stressed body.
As you learn to release the physical body the mind relaxes too. Please bring: Yoga mat, Blanket, Cushions, Blocks, A sock!
