Your soft-tissue and myofascial system intimately connect your muscles, tendons, bones, nerves, blood vessels and organs. They keep a detailed record of your past, affect you in the present, and influence your future. Our holding patterns, habits, go-to stances and even beliefs create and shape our form. Movement practices, like yoga, move and work the body in an amazing and useful way. However there is more work to do. Self Myofascial relief is a practice of using specially designed tools to access, differentiate, explore and ultimately release adhesions and restrictions. The Holy Roller perspective incorporates using this work to explore the beauty and full nature of these physical forms.
Join Sensei Derek Cook - biomechanist, structural bodyworker and internet ordained Reverend as we explore the science behind SMR, and the techniques that can bring significant and lasting relief to this body we use and work in our asanas practice. This workshop will take a large picture / full body perspective and include some in depth discussion of the system at play, and how to heal them.
