Roll + Release yoga with squishy balls and soft foot rollers

Roll + Release

Saturday, August 24th
10:30-12:00pm
$20

Yoga with squishy balls and soft foot rollers (provided).

The ultimate self massage! In this fun and feel good workshop, we explore using inflatable balls and soft foot rollers to support the body,  soften and hydrate connective tissue and gently "unstick" areas of tension and pain. This creates a dynamic sensory experience, increases blood flow, nourishes the nervous system, awakens a deeper sense of core integrity, enlivens an awareness of curiosity and play, and is wonderfully calming and grounding.

Benefits of self massage with balls include:

  • improved flexibility

  • improved posture

  • reduced aches and pains

  • reduced tension and stress

  • increases circulation

  • restores sensory awareness to feet (can assist in relieving neuropathy)

  • overall well being

Gentle Somatic Yoga® (GSY) is a unique “art of movement” practice that combines traditional yoga postures, Hanna Somatic Education, breathing techniques and healing visualizations. By incorporating slow, mindful movements that raise bodily awareness to release tension-based patterns in the body, GSY meets you where you are currently and gently guides you into greater states of inner peace and joy.

Instead of traditional stretching, GSY utilizes brain-to-muscle re-education to reprogram muscles. The self-corrective and therapeutic exercises, called Somatic Movement Flows®, are ideal for overcoming bodily pain, dramatically increasing flexibility, and reversing postural imbalances.
