Release


This class is taught by:

Sarah May

Sarah, a boutique fitness junkie, formed Unity Yoga in 2013. Unity Yoga's mission is to offer students a tight-knit yoga community without having to leave the neighborhood. Sarah's alignment-based classes are technical and inventive, and offer accessibility to ensure students leave feeling stronger and more able. She began teaching yoga classes in 2005. Her teaching style is influenced by Tiffany Fisk and Jason Brown. In addition to practicing yoga, she enjoys megaformer, trx and bootcamp classes. Sarah moved to Harlem in 2008. Her favorite neighborhood spots are Double Dutch Coffee and Vinateria.
What does it mean to release a muscle? Release is a slow-moving practice that offers the opportunity to knead & soothe grippy muscles, by way of self-massage and conscious movement. What to expect: With the use of a dense rubber ball, you'll apply sustained pressure & friction to encourage circulation and freer movement. With the use of props (like blocks, straps & the wall) we'll bend, bind, and stretch. We recommend wearing a tank top & shorts for skin to prop contact (this contact will allow for greater manipulation of fascia). Who it's for: Release classes are enjoyed by practitioners who crave slow & intense movement. This class is also great for runners, cyclists, & strength-training enthusiasts. Classes are inspired by the studio's Pose of the Month. This 60-minute, Level 2 class is held at 85°F.
