Happy Hips with Radhika Truffa

Screen Shot 2018-11-30 at 3.24.22 PM.png

March 2nd, 3-5pm Foam rolling is a form of self myofascial release, or basically it is a way you can give yourself a deep tissue massage. The fascia is a fibrous layer of connective tissue that surrounds and goes through all of the muscles in our body. Over time, fibers of the fascia become cross-linked and they bind to muscles and nerves, inhibiting normal motion and causing pain. In this workshop we will be using different tools such as foam rollers, various types of balls, and yoga blankets to decrease adhesions in the fascia resulting in decreased pain, increased range of motion, increased circulation, and finally, to help prevent injury. The foam rolling will be followed by some hip opening yoga poses that will be held for a long period of time, which will continue to work on releasing the fascia. If you have a foam roller or lacrosse ball, please bring it to the workshop. $30 Advanced Registration Only Unlimited Members 10% off Register here.

Embodied Anatomy with Vanessa Nassif

Vanessa-52.jpg

April 28th, 12-4pm How does the weight of your head travel to your feet? The journey isn’t a straight line.  Bones are curved and weighted spirals through our bones, which themselves contain spirals. Muscles travel in layered, spiraling 3D pathways and move our bones so they can bear weight. In this workshop, we will explore the principles of pathways of weight and balanced joint space through movement and discussion. Investigate how to organize your bones standing on your hands or your feet, allowing your muscles to sort themselves out. We will look at the anatomy of breath and how getting out of your way can facilitate free breathing. Can related mobility create stability in your yoga practice? This work is inspired by deep study with Amy Matthews and Leslie Kaminoff, authors of the widely-known Yoga Anatomy book. $65 Advanced Registration Only Unlimited Members 10% off  Register here.
