Foam rolling was once used only by professional athletes, coaches, and therapists but is becoming more familiar for people at all levels of fitness. Many people have heard of foam rolling or self-myofascial release but don’t know how to do it or not motivated to do it outside a class environment. This class will release muscle tightness with a combination of rolling techniques, stretches and self-massage. You can aide in the recovery of muscles and assist in returning them to normal function which means your muscles are elastic, healthy, and ready to perform at a moment’s notice. Please contact the studio by phone or email on the week you want to attend.
