Fascia Release for Yoga and Yogis
I’ve been loving self-myofascial release (SMFR) for many years now. My “Way of the Happy Fascia” workshops regularly sell out, I assign SMFR to nearly all my patients, and am sometimes “guilty” of spending more time on my mat rolling on balls than doing conventional yoga asana.
Well, now I’m sharing my love of Fascia virtually through a new online course I developed for Yoga Journal. It’s called Fascia Release for Yoga, and is 6-week of self myofascial release techniques paired with yoga sequences to demonstrate the efficacy of SMFR for improved mobility. Access to course materials begins Feb. 19th (2018). We will have a lively Facebook group, live webinars, and more.
“Fascia is your body’s three-dimensional connective tissue matrix. It encases and weaves through muscles, organs, and bone to bind all your distinct parts together as one. If an area of your body becomes stiff or develops adhesions or scar tissue, this can create a pull on the fabric of the myofascial network, affecting the entire chain.
Join Ariele Foster, PT, DPT, E-RYT, founder of YogaAnatomyAcademy.com, in a 6-week course on how to use self-myofascial release techniques with props like foam rollers and balls (as well as DIY props) to support your yoga practice, fix trouble spots, and target your overall nervous system for whole-body optimal health.
She’ll help you stay up on the latest research related to fascia and teach you the dos and don’ts of myofascial release techniques so you stay safe as you restore your connective tissue health, improve your somatic map (sense of your body), and discover new ease in your asana practice.“
