May 2021 Monthly Practice Series – YWE Course Bonus
Therapeutic Yoga Practices for Myofascial Release
In this video, Ellen Saltonstall guides you through a series of exercises that relieve pressure on the joints of the knees and feet. Using a combination of her signature Bodymind Ballwork and Yoga, Ellen shows you how to activate and lengthen the muscles that can compress the knee, ankle, and foot joints. By working through this practice you will enjoy more freedom of movement and be prepared for poses that put weight on these joints.
We often carry layers of tension in our back and hips. This can impact our alignment and, over time, lead to chronic back pain and decreased mobility. In this session, Ellen guides you through a practice that massages out the muscles of the back and hips, relieving pain and improving range of motion. With this practice, you’ll also come into a more integrated way of feeling these muscles, which will allow you to use them more efficiently when practicing yoga.
This session focuses on unleashing the effects of gravity and shaping up your shoulders. Chrys shows you how to release the upper body to improve your breathing and create greater freedom and stability in your shoulders.
In this class, we will explore how to use myofascial release to awaken Prana by progressively warming up the body in preparation for a yoga practice, physical activity, or in order to simply feel more relaxed and renewed.
