What is fascia and why is so it important? Fascia is the connective tissue in our bodies, which gives us support, mobility and flexibility. When fascia becomes restricted it can cause great disharmony in our natural alignment, causing us pain and limited range of motion. Myofascial simply refers to the fascial system and how it relates to skeletal muscle, ‘myo’ meaning muscle and ‘fascial’ connective tissue. Learn more about our fascial system and self-treatment techniques using tools like foam rollers, soft sports balls and stretching to release fascial restrictions. Incorporating myofascial self-treatment into your daily self-care regimen can significantly decrease muscular pain while increasing flexibility! Please wear loose comfortable clothing that you can easily move around in. Yoga mats will be provided, but feel free to bring your own if you have one.
