Neck and Shoulder Release: A Workshop in Self Myofascial Treatment

Woman holding sore neck, muscle soreness

Do you experience chronic tension or pain in your neck, shoulders, or upper back?

Does no amount of stretching seem to release it?

Does daily work at a computer lead to constantly stiff neck and shoulders?

Ready to take control of your health and well being, and experience greater ease of movement and relief from chronic tension?

In this workshop, you’ll learn and practice releasing common areas of tension in the neck, shoulders, and upper body through self myfoascial treatment.

Using a tennis ball and gentle, sustained pressure, you’ll be guided through simple yet deeply effective exercises to release tension in the body’s connective tissue; allowing for greater range of motion, ease of movement, and relief from tension and pain. We’ll also work with simple feldenkrais exercises, increasing somatic awareness throughout these areas.

This workshop is a small group format, allowing for lots of one-on-one instruction and guidance as you learn to more deeply understand your body’s own signals and needs and move towards greater self care and wellness.

In deepening our ability to sense into the muscles and tissue, we gain a greater ability to self regulate the body’s habitual stress patterns, creating new & healthier habits in our body-minds.

Release, Restore, and Re-set your body and mind for a powerful and transformational year! You’ll leave with a routine to practice at home, empowering you to take control of your body’s well being through regular mindful self care.

Restorative yoga is a practice of passive poses that utilize props to facilitate deep relaxation. Each pose is held for 5-10 minutes and made even better by gentle massage with a focus on myofascial release.
