This class uses movements from Yoga to increase flexibility and balance; movements from Pilates to build core strength; and movements from myofascial release therapy to target trigger points soothing and releasing tight muscles.
Foam rolling has been shown to be beneficial in reducing chance of injury and increasing recovery by hydrating the muscles with increased blood flow and breaking up adhesions between skin, muscles and bones. Range of motion is greatly increased, and the bottom line is, you just feel and move better in your body.
I am a Yoga Alliance certified instructor, certified in Mat Pilates, and ACE certified as a personal trainer. I developed this class in conjunction with the physical therapists at a health care facility where I taught for 18 years.
This is a “feel good” class, but sooooo good for your body. Come roll with us! The only requirements are a foam roller (which you will love having at home to do self massage)and a yoga mat.
