Full Body Myofascial Release with Heidi
Jun 1, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm| $45
Fascia (spider web like connective tissues) play an important role in the support and function of our bodies, since it surrounds and attaches to all structures. In the normal healthy state the fascia is relaxed and has the ability to stretch and move without restriction.
Myofascial Release Therapy is a safe and effective technique that involves applying gentle pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue that covers the bones and organs.
In this workshop you will learn how to use blocks and tennis balls to work on these release techniques that help break down scar tissue rejuvenate and hydrate the fascia in your feet, hamstrings, inner thighs, glutes and medius.
These techniques can be a great addition to your yoga practice.
Bring a yoga mat, towel, and water. We will provide all other props.

About the instructor: Heidi Dickinson
Heidi was born and raised in South Africa; her family moved to Seattle 13 years ago. Before moving to Seattle Heidi was a high school teacher.
Teaching people to be active and healthy is Heidi’s passion. She coached high school dance, field hockey and swim teams and mom-&-toddler fitness classes. She used to do many different kinds of exercises and got injured regularly because she was very competitive and had no body awareness. She took a few months off and only did yoga. She signed up for her first power class and was addicted. She loves how physically challenging and restorative this practice is.
She did her 200hr Teacher Training with Shakti Vinyasa (Baron Baptiste Inspired Vinyasa yoga), recognized by the worldwide Yoga Alliance in 2014. She has since then added Restorative Yoga and Myofascial release classes to her practice and teaching.
Heidi focuses on healthy alignment of yoga poses in her classes. She likes to teach a challenging all levels class that will empower you and make you sweat while still listening to your body and being kind to yourself.
