Slide and Glide Saturdays: A Monthly Fascial Release Workshop with Tricia Kull
Apr 10, 2021 - May 8, 2021
 

Fascia is connective tissue that surrounds your muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and organs. When it’s healthy, fascia allows your muscles to slide and glide as you move. But when your fascia gets tight and stuck, it can restrict your movement. In this monthly workshop, we will focus on a particular area of the body to help release layers of fascia using props, techniques, and yoga poses. The goal of this workshop is to help decrease tension, improve body awareness, and release fascial “stuckness” so that tissues slide and glide more easily. Everyone welcome.

Props:

Tennis ball

SOFT fascial massage peanut

Puffy ball

2 Yoga blocks OR 2 large books

One blanket

If you do not have a soft fascial massage peanut or puffy ball, you can use a sock peanut as an alternative. To make a sock peanut, take 3 knee socks or crew socks, ball up 2 of them and put them side by side inside the third sock, and tie the end.

Saturday, March 13 - low back and hips
Saturday, April 10 - neck and shoulders
Saturday, May 8 - hips, knees, and feet

CoreWalking with Jonathan FitzGordon
Apr 30, 2021 - May 2, 2021
 
Friday, April 30th, 5 - 7p: The Art of Tadasana

Tadasana is the foundation pose of most yoga practices. But how well do you see yourself in Tadasana?

How well do you see yourself as you go about your day?

This workshop will change the way you perceive and feel your body in space. Making simple changes to the way you stand in yoga and in life has a profound effect on your daily life, pain issues and athletic performance.


Saturday, April 17th, 10a - 12p: Yoga For Hips And Balance

Initiating movement from the core of the body is essential to moving well, healing successfully, and aging gracefully. To do that, we need good tone for all of the muscles in and around the pelvis for strength and balance and fluidity.

This workshop focuses on the pelvic muscles that facilitate balance and healthy movement patterns.

 
Saturday, April 17th, 2 - 5p: Psoas Release Party!

The psoas is the most important muscle in the body, acting as the main hip flexor and the engine of walking. A free and happy psoas allows the body to move with peak efficiency and little strain. Issues with the psoas can lead to any number of problems throughout your body—both physical and emotional. Lower back pain and other joint discomfort as well as disturbances to the nervous system can be linked to the psoas.

This is not a yoga class. You will spend the afternoon awakening, learning about, and releasing the psoas and understanding its core function within the body.


Sunday, April 18th, 10a - 12p: Yoga for Strength and Stability

Moving from the core requires balanced muscle tone and fluid joints, and in this class you will breathe, focus, move, stretch, and balance to create a more solid center. Core abdominal tone improves nearly every pose, allowing us to move with purpose and ease. Strength built on the mat informs your life when you step off of the mat, allowing you to live work and play to your fullest.

This workshop focuses on building a solid center from which healthy movement patterns originate.
 

Sunday, April 18th, 2–5p: What Is CoreWalking? (And Why Do I Need it?)

The CoreWalking Program provides pain relief, healing, and techniques for aging gracefully. Using simple adjustments to the way you walk, stand, sit, and exercise—CoreWalking can have life-changing results. It offers specific bodywork tools that you can easily integrate into your daily routine to reverse whatever has been holding you back from your fullest life.
 
In this class, you will learn a natural walking technique that helps align your bones, free your joints, and bring welcome relief to overused muscles.
 
When the body moves as it is designed, all parts work in harmony and the body becomes a self healing machine. Using the CoreWalking techniques, you can bring your body into the state of balance that allows you to both move and age gracefully.
