Foam Roll Workshop

Saturday at 12pm

LEARN SELF-HEALING TECHNIQUES WITH THE FOAM ROLLER

Experience an hour of deep stretch and relaxation! Learn the techniques and science behind foam rolling as Celeste leads you on a guided journey of your body from the bottom of your feet to our often tense muscles of the skull. 

The foam roller is not only a great tool to increase flexibility but is optimal for releasing lactic acid following a heavy workout, activating the lymphatic system to flush toxins and excess fluid from the body, and provides full body muscle self-massge and relief. Foam rolling is great for both athletes and beginners alike who are looking for a deeper connection between their mind and body. 

Whether you're looking to cool down using active and passive stretches following a workout, or just want to relieve regular body aches and pains, this class is great for all levels!

SATURDAY MADE FOR MOVING: FELDENKRAIS® IN DAILY LIFE

Throughout our lives, we've learned to move in an incomplete, idiosyncratic, and often haphazard way. MADE FOR MOVING introduces basic Feldenkrais®

SUNDAY: IT'S A MATTER OF LIFE AND BREATH

Designed for all practitioners of the moving arts & sciences.

Your breath has been influenced and impacted by illness, injury, intense incidents, and instruction. Whether you notice recurring patterns or not, the effects can be detrimental, reducing your respiratory repertoire and resilience, inhibiting motion and emotion, and restricting physical and mental flexibility. 

In Sunday's workshop, Larry will guide you through practice and discussion of the Feldenkrais® method to reclaim and improve the ability to breathe easily.
