Myofascial Release Workshop Series

Half Moon Yoga is honored to present a series of Myofascial Release workshops led by Barbara Rabin MSPT ATC PYTc. Barbara is a Holistic Physical Therapist, Certified Yoga Teacher, and a long time runner. To learn more about Barbara, visit her website brabinhpt.com

“Fascia is the tough connective tissue surrounding every cell of the body from head to toe like a three-dimensional spider web. Injury, trauma, poor posture or impaired biomechanics may cause the fascial system to tighten, putting abnormal pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bones, organs and the brain. This can result in a variety of symptoms including pain, restriction of motion, and structural misalignment, impairing both daily functioning and athletic performance. Myofascial Stretching is a unique self-treatment technique which follows the principles of Myofascial Release. It results in permanent lengthening of the body’s connective tissue and can dramatically improve health and quality of life.”

The course will offer a short lecture on the John F. Barnes approach to Myofascial Release followed by instruction and demonstration of various self-treatment release techniques. Come to learn how to self-treat your amazing body so you can keep running and cavorting as you so desire!
