Foam rollers are versatile props that help us to loosen up before a workout, reduce muscle soreness afterward, decrease exercise recovery time, AND improve how we move.
Join Dr. Larry Goldfarb to learn new and innovative ways to use the foam roller. This two-day Feldenkrais® workshop is about accessing your brain’s innate and lifelong ability to change. Being on a surface that moves when you move heightens your alertness, and amplifies what usually goes unnoticed. Foam Roller Revolution will turn your roller into a tool for rediscovering and relying on your axis, the midline. Larry will guide you through carefully designed sequences that can rebalance the entire neuromuscular system.
These guided movement lessons are engaging, challenging, and safe. All levels of movers are welcome to participate. The emphasis is on practical techniques and insights you can take with you and incorporate into your recovery and self-care routine.
This workshop is for you if you’re ready to:
Learn best practices for using foam rollers for regular self-care
Specific practices to increase mobility, flexibility and restore muscle balance.
Release chronic tension.
Improve balance and breathing.
Refine your coordination.
Reawaken your body’s innate intelligence, awareness, and joy.
