Beyond Foam Rolling – Self Myofascial Release and Mobility
Your soft-tissue and myofascial system intimately connect your muscles, tendons, bones, nerves, blood vessels and organs. They keep a detailed record of your past, affect you in the present, and influence your future. While movement practices, such as yoga, strength training, running – whatever your favorite – help us to get into, learn about, and work these parts and systems. There is more work to do. This practice allows you to improve your health by learning how these systems work, and effective techniques to release the tension and restrictions held within…

Thoughtful adjustments and hands on assists are an important and rapidly disappearing skill when it comes to the yoga room these days. The pendulum has swung from the days of sitting on the kurmasana of a student in order to flatten them out, to attempts at guiding through only words. This workshop will give both experienced teachers and those newer to the front of the room, the format to turn any shape into an opportunity for deep physical and energetic dialogue. We will discuss the ground rules of adjusting, how to set and work from clear intention, how to see the bodies in front of you and unpack what you can do to be of service, and even explore some of classic and funky adjustments to add to your tool box. Come with or without a person to adjust and a willingness to get down to it. Expect lots of hands on work, and communicating with old and new friends alike.
I have always worked with my hands as my tools, I’ve been a carpenter, an artist a musician and a sculptor, with a desire to be of service to those around; long before I knew my path as a healer. I came into my body late in life, discovering my love of movement and the physical after a childhood of health problems and weight issues, with physical ailments playing a large part in my formation. After years of misunderstanding and mistreating my body I discovered yoga, and began down the path of healing. Yoga and bodywork revealed a badly hidden obsession with the body, how it works and how to work with it. The study of anatomy became my passion, taking me into medical university labs to explore Integrated Anatomy and research the form and function of fascia with Dr. Gil Headly and to massage tools as a way to work with our own bodies. I’m excited and honored to be able to share this work with students. I love working in a way that offers detailed and sophisticated information in an easily digestible and interesting package. I’m truly committed to creating an environment where anyone with a desire to learn and a resolve to show up can find healing.
