YIN YOGA AND MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY
This evening with Alicia Barry will leave you fully rejuvenated, physically and mentally!
In this workshop you will experience how these practices complement and work together for a full body rejuvenation, rebalancing and stress release. In the first hour you will learn MFR techniques to shift stubborn tightness in the fascia (the connective tissue ) and muscles, helping to release habitual muscular patterns and chronic pain and enhancing everyday mobility. Similar to the hands of a skilled therapist, You will learn how to use a MFR ball for self treatment, finding and treating restrictions within our fascial system, easing blocked energies, built up pain responses and chronic tension. In the second hour, you will relax into Yin yoga for a slow and mindful practice designed to wipe your stress away physically and mentally and bring you to an altered state of being. Yin yoga is a beautiful adjunct to a busy life or indeed a more yang style yoga practice. Yin Yoga restores connective tissue health by encouraging more flexible, mobile, supple joints. When the joints of the body become hardened by lack of movement or injury, the connective tissue becomes tighter and is less able to conduct chi through the meridians of the body. Therefore, when Yin restores connective tissue health, it simultaneously nourishes the meridians of the body and thus impacts the health of the organ systems as well. Yin Yoga enhances the flow of prana or chi' in the tissues around the joints, contributing to a balanced, healthy body.
