Self Myofascial Release 4 week course

4 March @ 7:15 pm - 8:45 pm

$149 – $169

****FULLY BOOKED******

If you’ve ever gone for a massage or another form of bodywork, you’ve likely experienced the diverse benefits of these therapies. While most of us can’t get a massage every day, many of us can find similar valuable effects from a regular Self-Myofascial Release (MFR) practice.

MFR is a set of self-directed and adaptable techniques that use props to gently manipulate the muscle and fascial tissues. It is an excellent complement to yoga or sport training, and can be incredibly helpful for injury prevention and recovery. Studies suggest MFR can reduce muscle soreness and pain, improve circulation, and increase range of motion, functionality, and resilience within the body. Evidence also indicates great emotional benefits of MFR, helping you release stress, down-regulate the nervous system, and ease into a state of deep rest.

In this 4-part series we will talk about what fascia is, why it is often overlooked, and why we should give it more consideration. We will discuss the wide range of physical and psychological effects of MFR, and different ways we can apply these techniques in our own unique bodies for our individual needs. We will learn how to target and release specific areas of the body, and ultimately we aim to empower you to add this potent and versatile tool to your self-care tool kit.

Who this workshop series is for:

  • Athletes looking to support relaxation and recovery
  • Yogis wanting to build more body awareness and access those hard to reach spots
  • Anyone wanting to practice self care and can’t get to a massage therapist each week
  • Anyone looking to learn more about anatomy and physiology in particular fascia
  • No prior yoga experience required. As long as you can freely get up and down from the floor you can benefit from this practice.

Includes your own set of 2 RECOVERY ROUNDS which will be distributed on week 1, and you will bring to each session (retail value including delivery is ($54.55) :

Born from a body-benefiting collaboration between Yoga Medicine and RAD  – these gentle-touch massaging rounds wake up your muscles and stimulate your nervous system for total body recovery and calm. Use them everywhere.

Jesse was first introduced to Myofascial Release about two years ago, on her journey to her 500hr yoga teacher certification with YOGA MEDICINE. While curiosity inspired her to sign up for a training she initially knew little about, she quickly found that adding MFR to her own yoga practice allowed her to shift into a slower, more mindful, and deeply intuitive place. Through working one-on-one with students on a variety of journeys, she also discovered the power and versatility of MFR to complement so many aspects of life on and off the yoga mat. She has become passionate about sharing these techniques, and is really excited for the chance to dive a little deeper with the Grassroots kula!
