REVIVE, RELIEVE, RESTORE…
This iRONFAERY™ Signature Workshop begins with a brief head-to-toe diagnostic asana sequence that will reveal your healing needs. Focused Self-Myofascial Release (SMR) massage technique — with your roller of choice — completes your experience with head-to-toe self-healing.
What the Fascia? Fascia are connective tissues that attach, stabilize, enclose, and separate muscles and other internal organs.
The RumbleRoller® was created to relieve muscular pain and tightness (often called “adhesions”, “knots”, or “trigger points”). The surface of the RumbleRoller contains specially designed bumps that are firm, but flexible, much like the thumbs of a massage therapist.
Through simple techniques, you can control the amount of pressure the bumps apply to your body. The bumps are closely spaced to one another (< 2” apart), so several of them simultaneously contact your body during most exercises. However, with a slight shift of your body, you can reduce your area of contact with the RumbleRoller, which increases pressure and provides deeper, more penetrating relief.
As iRONFAERY, I practice and teach the art of smarter asana. Auspiciously, the same year I began serving veterans with cancer as a whole health psychologist, I was introduced to the bhakti yogic path via Siddha Yoga Meditation. I received shaktipat from Gurumayi Chidvilasananda (1996). Focused on ‘peace-of-mind,’ I found myself consistently distracted by a lifetime of accumulated athletic injuries. Sitting in sukhasana (easy pose) for any length of time was challenging. Being incredibly physically uncomfortable during meditation drew me to combining the healing practices of asana and pranayama. Tenacity should have been my nickname because after 20 years of dedicated practice – on a good day – I can meditate in padmasana (full lotus).
I received my yoga teacher certification from Sri Dharma Mittra (2006). The spark of AcroYoga was ignited at Burning Man where I embraced the mantra of ‘Trust & Surrender.’ I received my AcroYoga teacher certificate from the co-founders of AcroYoga (2007). My most recent study took me on a month-long journey to London, UK, for Edward Clark’s Tripsichore Intensive Study Course (2014).
