SAFE STRETCH MYO-FASCIAL RELEASE WORKSHOP

Joanne Pineau

Meaford & St Vincent Community Centre

RPWSAFE     $35/ 90 min. workshop

Thursday October 5  6:00pm - 7:30pm

With aging, trauma, or lack of use, the fascia can lose hydration, limiting movement and predisposing us for joint problems, back pain or other chronic pain issues over time.  This workshop is a combination of lecture and practice.  Learn about the Fascia, the connective tissue that glues the muscle to the skin, and the major role it plays in aging & flexibility.  Learn how to stretch safely and how to remove common aches and pain in your body using foam rollers, therapy balls, gentle stretches and movements.  We will focus on carpal tunnel, back and hip pain, and the IT band.  You will need to bring your own mat, therapy balls and foam roller.
