Students in pain often need more than just yoga or a movement practice to help them jumpstart their body. This workshop provides you with a simple and effective self-myofascial release tool to help you erase pain, improve mobility and prevent injuries. Explore a variety of rubber Roll Model Therapy Balls that benefit instructors, athletes, chronic pain sufferers and more. This workshop will increase your embodied anatomical fluency as you learn to traverse multiple layers of myofascial geography and their associated connective tissues. These proven sequences affect profound change in the rotator cuff, upper back, neck, jaw, hips, lower back, IT Band, calves and feet. We'll also explore hard-to-reach myofascial hotspots like the diaphragm, psoas and pelvic floor. Help your body awaken, move, and heal. Please bring: yoga mat,

Neural flexibility. Neural resilience. Neuroscience. If these terms seem heady, this workshop will help you embody your brain's neural playground - your body. The vagus nerve is beloved by yogis for being our chief parasympathetic (relaxation response) nerve. But new science around the influence of the vagus has shifted our understanding of parasympathetic responses. This workshop teaches you how to access three anatomical zones enervated by the vagus nerve, and how each zone affects our state of perception and quality of being. The workshop includes novel, breath-based exercises coupled with soft-tissue self-massage, and positional release in order to feel the fascinating interplay of stimulating sympathetic and parasympathetic modes of being. Learn to distinguish between the myelinated and unmyelinated vagus doorways, and become familiar with Polyvagal Theory. Ultimately it will help you to be more aware of our own state and help you foster a safe environment for your students.

The respiratory diaphragm is a governing muscle of whole-body stability, agility and neurological balance. Any movement practice that does not account for the function and physiology of this muscle is under-serving the performance-based body. Through embodied anatomy exercises, learn to analyze the strength, flexibility and range of motion of this myofascial structure in yourself and your clients. You will simultaneously deconstruct and build new kinetic chains in your torso and relate them to a bigger picture of conscious breathing, spinal integrity, digestion, emotion and newfound realms of somatic awakening. As a bonus, you will learn accessible drills to stimulate your vagus nerve for parasympathetic down-regulation

Your periphery contains the most sensory-nerve - rich regions of your body, so when injuries take root in these tissues, the domino effect has miserable consequences. Hand issues are pervasive due to overuse of technology; feet folly is rampant due to footwear and gait; face tensions from eyestrain impact your posture; and the list goes on. In this workshop, we will be performing a fascial makeover to both unravel tensions and re-normalize the fine joints and myofascias in all of your high-sensing parts.
