Self Myofascial Release Workshop
September 26 @ 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM
Self Myofascial Release or SMR is a self massage technique used to release the fascia, the connective tissue beneath the skin that supports, stabilizes and surrounds the bones, muscles and organs of the body. This technique is a great way to support everyday life, to promote healthy muscles, tissues and joints, and can also be used for muscle recovery and injury prevention. Everybody should practice self myofascial release!
In this workshop, we will explore the different uses and potential outcomes of SMR as well as learn a variety of self myofascial release techniques using both tennis balls and a foam roller.
A few benefits of SMR include:
- Improved range of motion
- Sense of relaxation throughout the body
- Release muscle tension
- Reduced muscle soreness
- Increased blood flow to muscles (improved recovery time)
- Reduced pain
- Improved quality of sleep
Participants are asked to bring a tennis ball and a foam roller if they have one. A limited number of foam rollers will be available to borrow at the studio (please let us know if you intend to borrow one of ours). You can purchase your own here. Foam rollers come in a variety of sizes. We recommend 24-36” because of their versatility, but smaller ones work just as well. Class size will be limited to 10 participants, in studio, so register today!
