Myofascia is the combination of muscle and fascia that can be found throughout the body. Fascia is the living seam system that links everything inside you together. While there can be fascia without muscle, there is NEVER muscle without fascia.
Inflammation, fibrosis, and thickening of our fascia can limit our range of motion and cause pain. Injuries, inflammations, and surgeries can restrict fascia and create many health problems. For example, fascial restrictions can put up to 2,000 pounds per square inch (psi) on sensitive internal organs and structures, causing great pain.
This edition of "Roll with Me" addresses the core, using soft balls to relieve stress and tension, improve posture and breathing, and even to break up deep internal abdominal scars from surgery.
Deep diaphragmatic breathing (aka "belly breathing") helps to calm the nervous system. But if your abdominal muscles are tight and tense, accessing that breath when you are anxious or stressed is made harder. We will utilize the balls to apply pressure and will make you aware of tension there that inhibits the full range of motion in your breathing muscles.
Releasing that unconscious tension can also make it easier to reverse poor posture.
This workshop, guided by Erica Tharp, E-RYT 200 and Yoga Tune Up® Certified instructor, will utilize Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls designed specifically for deep body work, to unlock fascial restrictions with their super-grippy and pliable structure and aide in revitalizing your body’s own self-healing nature.
This workshop is a great compliment to any type of physical activity to keep your body functioning as it was intended. Self-care is an invaluable component to a happy life, mind, body and soul. Think of this Myofascial workshop as “self-care opportunity”.
All levels welcome!
