Roll and Release is a self-massage class. Your body is a beautiful weaving of connective tissue, fascia, in which the muscles, bones and organs are suspended in a graceful balance. Patterns of day-to-day life, injuries, habits and repetitive use deforms the connective tissue resulting in stress and discomfort that can make you susceptible to injuries and chronic pain. Using foam rollers and small balls we will massage and release the connective tissue allowing more ease and comfort in the body. We compliment our practice with breathing exercises and guided meditation to help the body completely de-stress.
