Why I Love Body Rolling | Myofascial Release
For as long as I can remember as a child, I had back pain.
I can recall getting out of bed at twelve years old with an achy back.
I’d ask my Mom to grind her knuckles into my low back to release the tightness.
Fast forward several decades later…
I discovered yoga, and body rolling | myofascial release.
Now I’m teaching myofascial release (body rolling) each month on Zoom.

I decided to start teaching these workshops for two reasons:
The feedback from my private yoga clients has been overwhelmingly positive about Body Rolling | Myofascial Release.
I’ve received so many queries from people with neck, shoulder and back pain since the beginning of the pandemic.
I realized the Zoom format is perfect for teaching this modality so-
Each month of 2021 I will teach A Body Rolling | Myofascial Release WORKSHOP, on either Saturday or Sunday.
[The March 2021 one will be on a Sunday to accommodate anyone who works on Saturdays, and parents).
Some will be full-body and others will focus on a specific region of the body (upper, lower, etc).
What You Need for Body Rolling | Myofascial Release
–Pair of Yoga Tune Up Balls (regular size)
–Pair of yoga blocks (any brand but I like Hugger Mugger because they are heavy and durable).
*two tennis balls in a knotted sock can substitute for yoga tune up balls
I want to stress that this is NOT exercise equipment that will gather dust in your home.
Body Rolling | Myofascial Release is the most accessible form of self-care / pain relief I know of.
After a single 90 minute workshop you will have learned techniques that you can immediately use in your daily life.
