Myofascial Release: Upper Body

Friday November 8th 6-8pm

This is part one of a two part myofascial release series. The first part of this series will teach myofascial releases for all the major muscles of the UPPER body. What is myofascial release? Fascia is connective tissue that surrounds everything in our bodies, from muscles, to bones, to internal organs. Like muscle, fascia can get tight and fatigued if not exercised regularly. Trigger points are areas of high nerve density in muscles and fascia. By applying pressure to these trigger points we send a signal to our brain to oxygenate muscles and fascia with increased blood flow to the area. This increased blood flow reduces muscle fatigue and pain. The brain/body connection can further be developed by activating muscles immediately after releasing trigger points through stretches and strengthening exercises. In this workshop, Annie will teach 1-3 myofascial releases at a time, followed by stretches and exercises to target the muscles just released.                                                           COST:$40 or $35 for Bending Bodhi Members
