Yoga Workshop: Ball Rolling for Myofascial Release


Myofascial massage is used as a tool to help break through tissue adhesions (like trigger points or tight, stiff areas with limited pliability, often brought on by stress, physical exertion, injury, or dehydration) that may be found within the protective layer of fascia surrounding your muscles and connective tissues. The grip and grab texture of using therapy balls allow you to precisely target a variety of aches and pains throughout your body.

Therapy balls may also help to alleviate stress and tension throughout the body as it may improve circulation and range of motion, and encourage faster muscle recovery time. Myo-fascial massage may also assist in relieving the discomfort of neuropathy in the hands and feet.

Join yoga teacher Julia Ayearst as you explore myofascial release in this 60-minute workshop. We’ll begin with some gentle movement and breathwork to settle into the practice and then progress through a sequence of self-massage using therapy balls to release aches and pains from head to toe. The workshop will end with guided relaxation to help you find ease of body, breath, mind, and spirit.

Please bring your own yoga mat.
