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 and deliberate opportunity to explore the depths of your yoga practice, by way of self-massage and conscious movement. With the use of a dense rubber ball, you'll apply sustained pressure to promote increased circulation and myo-fascial release of shoulders, back, hips, calves, feet, etc -- to target those areas that require a little time-off. With the use of props (like blocks, straps & the wall) we'll bend, bind, and flow (slowly). We recommend wearing a tank top & shorts for skin to prop contact (this contact will allow for greater manipulation of fascia). This class is especially recommended for runners, cyclists, & strength-training enthusiasts. Classes are inspired by the studio's Pose of the Month. This 60-minute, Level 1 class is held at 85°F.
