Letting Nature Guide You - A Personal Introspective & Benefits of Forest Therapy/Bathing
Myofascial Release Yoga
This class will begin with a brief explanation of myofascial release, a gentle, safe and highly effective hands-on technique which provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions.
Fascia is a tough connective tissue which spreads throughout the body in a three dimensional web. Trauma or inflammation can cause a binding down of fascia resulting in excessive pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels or organs.
This active session will begin with a warm up with some gentle stretches and breathe techniques. Together with the support of a massage ball, you will be guided through specific myofascial releases and corresponding stretches for various protocols.
This activity can help increase shoulder and hip range of motion, decrease lower back pain and balance the pelvic centre of gravity, and ease head, neck and jaw tension.
If any specific injuries such as low back, knee or hip, please let us instructor know in advance so that we can provide support if needed.
All skill levels welcome.
