All the muscles, organs and bones in your body are surrounded by connective tissue called fascia. Scientists are just beginning to understand the importance of this tissue to our overall health and to our ability to move and feel.
As movement practitioners (which yogis are!) ensuring the health of our fascia can improve both strength and mobility. This workshop will run in two parts: in part one we will use massage balls that have been proven to stimulate your fascia. Expect to find and release some tight spots in your body that you didn’t know were there!
The second part of the workshop will be a well balanced, all-round vinyasa yoga practice where you might just feel the difference that stimulating your fascia has made on your body’s ability to move. We’ll end with a guided relaxation so you float out into the rest of your weekend.
Suitable for all levels
Registration: 35 euro for 1 workshop / 60 euro for both morning and afternoon workshops + vat for non-members
