Yoga with squishy balls and soft foot rollers
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.
