As far as we know, the earliest yogis didn’t practice with foam blocks, straps or sticky mats, but as yoga continues to evolve we often turn to props to help us access a posture more fully and deepen our asana practices. With that in mind, we’ll look at how a foam roller and other Self-Myofascial Release (SMR) techniques can be used within a yoga practice.
Foam Rolling and SMR are well known in the physical therapy world and gym setting, but how does it fit in a yoga studio? Understanding the incredible benefits make it a complementary component to a yoga practice and can lead to greater flexibility, range of movement, and an overall sense of ease.
This training with Dan Carter, E-RYT, will provide you with the benefits and principles of how foam rolling works and how it complements a yoga practice. We’ll explore specific foam rolling exercises with corresponding asanas and how you can create a well-rounded class for your students.
Restorative Yoga is a practice known to help flexibility, relax the body, still the mind and improve our capacity for healing. While the vibration and tones from singing bowls help us relax and come into a deeper state of consciousness and awareness.
In this workshop, we'll blend these two practices. Paige Lichens, an ERYT 500 Kripalu Yoga & Meditation Teacher, will lead us through a Restorative Yoga practice and then guide us through a singing bowl and gong meditation to balance the chakras and relax your body on a deeper level.
