Free Your Fascia

Free Your Fascia

Ever feel stuck in your body? Like things have gotten shrink-wrapped together? It’s time to Free Your Fascia!

Fascia is the connective structures that run around your muscles, encase your organs, and even weave through your bones. Many bodyworkers believe THIS (not your muscles!!) is the key to freedom in your body.

When you learn about fascia, you experience your body differently. After just scratching the surface of this in classes, students reported life long injuries loosening, opening, unraveling. So we’re goin’ to make a day of it.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Open your connective tissue when practicing so that asana feels more like massage.  

  • Make the stretch “stick” so you feel like you’re making progress with your flexibility and alignment (vs. going in and having to do it all over again every practice). 

  • Keep the body “juicy” and fluid vs. stiff and brittle over time.

  • Use the state of your fascia as a “stress test”

Only 16 spots available.
