Relax and Restore with Body Rolling
Connective tissue (fascia) is a gel fluid and strong fibers that surround every muscle, joint, vessel, bone and organ to support, protect, store energy, provide strength, flexibility, and cushioning. Fascia can become dysfunctional (too weak or too tight) from repetitive positions and movements, aging, injuries and surgeries. Dysfunctional fascia can cause poor posture, muscle imbalances, compensation, misaligned joints stiffness, weakness and pain.
However, connective tissue has the remarkable ability to be restored and maintained. This class offers techniques (using balls and a soft roller) that trigger the relaxation response and improve connective tissue function at the same time.
Appropriate for most fitness levels.
- Release stress - - Relieve pain - - Prevent injury - - Rejuvenate

"I find that over the year and a half that I have been taking the class just about every week, I have learned a lot…specifically and also generally. I know many of the techniques and routines we learned, have developed an intuitive sense of how to address certain areas, and have been using the roller and balls more frequently. So, thanks for your passion, as you called it, to learn all you can about the body and how to treat it naturally, and for passing that on." Jane A.
