Roll + Release: Neck + Shoulders Edition | Workshop

Join Rebekah for a luscious sesh of sweet myofascial release! Whether you’re an avid roller or a newbie, you’ll leave this workshop feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, with new release and self-massage techniques for mobility and ease in your yoga practice and beyond. Foam rolling promotes flexibility, lessens soreness and stiffness, and stimulates blood flow. In this mellow-paced workshop, we’ll spend 90 minutes nourishing our connective tissue in a flowing exploration of whole-body foam rolling techniques, with a focus on our necks, shoulders, and upper body.

Some yoga asanas will be featured to integrate the powerful potential for a healthy range of motion that myofascial release can offer. You’ll leave with a better understanding of your connective tissue, including fascia and its role in the musculoskeletal system, and strategies for keeping it nourished, comfortable, and supple. Learning to tune into the mind of your connective tissue as a meshwork of sensation and support can be a wonderful way to explore new models for understanding your body and your movement.

This workshop will take place live over Zoom on Sunday 9/26, 10-11:30am PT / 1-3:30pm ET. Your purchase will give you access to the recording through Sunday October 17th, and you can also purchase the replay until then. To attend live you must register 30 minutes before start time, at which point registration will be closed.
