Calling all yogis, runners, skiers, cyclers, bootcampers, barre practitioners, and anyone who simply needs a good stretch to release tension and stress, while building flexibility!
“Stretch and Massage Ball Rolling” incorporates active and resistant stretching and myofascial release using massage balls/ball rolling, along with more passive yin and restorative poses. This is a great opportunity for athletes, as well as those who simply need to release tension and stress while building flexibility. Special attention will be paid to the neck and shoulders, hamstrings, hips, quads and lower back. The benefit of this work will be to relieve tension and learn to improve mobility. Yogis, runners, skiers, cyclers, bootcampers, and barre practitioners will all benefit greatly from this important investment. Vito's care and attention to safety and therapeutics enable students to open body, heart and mind in a deep and sustainable way.
Class size is limited to make use of the wall space and to maximize attention for optimal therapeutic effect.
