Teacher Tune-up - Sequencing

This very special offering is unique to Bloom and offers a very effective and often over looked technique to safely increasing depth and range of motion in yoga, and those perpetually "stuck" spots in our bodies.

In this intensive we will learn techniques to safely and quickly release tight fascia that is responsible for the range of motion in the shoulders, as well as fun yoga binds.

Myofascial release (MFR) therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. One of the many benefits to incorporating MFR into a regular practice is  increased flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or virtually pain in any area of the body and releases tightness of the tissues that restricts motion or pulls the body out of alignment, causing individuals to favor and overuse one hip or shoulder. This is an issue that everyone deals with and causes puzzling pains in the body that are hard to diagnose or find the cause of.

This course empowers students and teachers to treat and heal their bodies imbalances, pain, and the bound, stubborn muscles that don't seem to unstick no matter how much yoga we do!

Read more about fascia below. 

This is a 4 week series, devided into categories: shoulders, hips, lower limbs and spine/torso, and follows an anatomy lab lesson addressing the appropriate body part. These courses will be co-facilitated by Lisa Trunkenbolz and Rachel Hall. See more about Lisa and Rachel below.

This class runs from 4-6 pm on the following dates:

Investment for this course is $40 per course or $130 for the series. Pre-registration is highly suggested. Can be applied toward YA-CEU's.

What is fascia and why is so it important?

Fascia is the connective tissue in our bodies, which gives us support, mobility and flexibility. When fascia becomes restricted it can cause great disharmony in our natural alignment, causing us pain and limited range of motion. Myofascial simply refers to the fascial system and how it relates to skeletal muscle, ‘myo’ meaning muscle and ‘fascial’ connective tissue. Learn more about our fascial system and self-treatment techniques using tools like foam rollers, soft sports balls and stretching to release fascial restrictions. Incorporating myofascial self-treatment into your daily self-care regimen can significantly decrease muscular pain while increasing flexibility!
