tennis ball self-myofascial release yoga

“As a physical therapist, I believe EVERYONE should know the basics of self-myofascial release. It is an essential part of whole body self-care” – Dr. Ariele Foster

Join Dr. Ariele Foster, physical therapist, yoga teacher and founder of for an afternoon of self-myofascial “release”, exploratory movement and movement science.

Self-myofascial release is a practice that deeply compliments yoga asana and other movement modalities, and has a profound effect of calming your nervous system. It is a self-care skill that will benefit and enhance the rest of your life.

This workshop includes a guided full-body myofascial release practice, some gentle, asana-based mindful movement, and the latest knowledge on the science of fascia and optimal movement. Understand how the practice of myofascial release integrates into the physical expression of yoga as well as yoga philosophy.

Enjoy a lightness, freedom and sense of renewal in your body. Walk away like you are walking on a cloud.

Please bring 2 tennis balls and a clean tube sock. (or at least a clean sock. I have spare tennis balls).
