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.
