Tension Release Myofascial-Yin Yoga Workshop

with Laura Cargill

Sunday 29 August

Yin yoga is well known to be deeply relaxing for stiff, tired and injured bodies - but add 'myofascial release' and this practice becomes physically and mentally transformational.

Join Laura to experience how to bring relief to your: aching back and shoulders; stiff neck and spine; as well as releasing the hips and hamstrings to experience a natural lightness and freedom in your body-mind.

Myofascial release is like a therapeutic self-massage. The myofascia tissue covering muscles and joints is gently pressed until the muscle stretches, becomes more pliable and the tension releases. 

The techniques are simple and easy for everyone to learn. We will incorporate and explore specific ball techniques to access and release the pain and tension in your body.

Learn to transform how your body feels. 

When we know how to directly release tension from our body, we can experience greater openness, mobility, health, mental ease and comfort, leading to our own transformation.

The Benefits ~ in these workshops you will:

  • Understand how to release the trigger points in your body.
  • Reduce stiffness, immobility and pain from contracted muscles.
  • Learn how to work with chronic conditions like sciatica and neck pain.
  • Create a supportive environment for your body.
  • Explore a practice combination of Myofascial release and yin yoga.

The workshop is suitable for both men and women, for beginners and people completely new to yoga practice, as well as experienced yoga students and yoga teachers wishing to expand or deepen their yoga journey. Couples are welcome! Those with stiff backs, tight hamstrings and/or hips will especially benefit! 

"This workshop was invaluable! I loved the emphasis on everyone's body being different and listening to what my own body needed. It was a great reminder of the breath and tuning into the body. Laura is a fountain of knowledge and wisdom." ~ Kate

The July workshop will focus on releasing the neck and spine. The August workshop will focus on releasing the neck, spine, shoulders and legs.
