Myofascial release with Yoga Tune Up therapy balls (1 hour long).
What is fascia? And how can it affect your body?
Simply put, fascia is the body’s connective tissue. It is body suit of sorts, an all-encompassing interwoven system of fibrous connective tissue found throughout the body. Your fascia provides a tensile framework that helps support and protect each individual muscle group, organ, and the entire body as a unit. Fascia also plays an important supportive role to our musculoskeletal system by enabling us to perform functional activities like walking, jumping, reaching etc.
Fascia also facilitates the flow of your circulatory system. Veins and arteries run through the fascia, and if the fascia is tight or adhered, it causes restriction – like a kink in a garden hose. This leads to poor blood flow, which means less oxygen and nutrients are being delivered to your cells. Less Oxygen means you’re body is less efficient, which means you deplete your energy reserves much more quickly!
In this class we will use the Yoga Tune Up therapy ball method (self massage w/ therapy balls) to release adhered fascia, break up scar tissue, increase circulation and mobility and down-regulate the nervous system to move into a parasympathetic healing state. Great for before or after ANY from of exercise! (Very relaxing and down regulating for the nervous system!) Classes are for ages 17+ only.
