More about the class from lynn herself!
Self-Myofascial Release (SMR) is a practice that uses tools to target fascia in the body. When fascia is healthy, it is supple, flexible, and supports our bones and other tissues, including our muscles. When fascia is not healthy, it can be dry, hard and can restrict movement and cause discomfort.
Most yoga in American culture is “yang” and focuses mostly on the muscles. Yin yoga is a practice focused on the deeper “yin” tissues of the body: ligaments, joints, deep fascial networks and even bones. By applying gentle, consistent pressure, the body is stimulated to release holding and tension and improve the condition of those tissues.
When we combine SMR with Yin yoga, we get a deeper connection to those “yin” tissues and the benefits increase.
This class is a great compliment to your current activities, especially if you have a strength training practice, a more yang yoga practice, if you are a desk jockey or if you participate in a sport.
Each week will focus on different areas of the body, spending a few minutes using tools to help unwind areas of holding, tension, or stress. Then, we will move into a yin practice focused on those same body areas to work even more deeply into release.
My goal for you is to become freer, more resilient, and more at ease in your body, and to give you a foundation to build your own practice of consistent SMR.
Tools will be provided at each class, but you are welcome to bring your own.
