8:00-9:00 AM Continental Breakfast (flexible arrival time)
9:00- 10:30 AM Myofascial Release Yoga w/ Ashley Davis (whole group)
We’ll begin our day moving slowly and releasing tension. Fascia is connective tissue that holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber, and muscle in place. It also has nerves and is considered our largest sensory organ. When we are stressed, it tightens up! Fascia responds well to mechanical pressure. Myofascial Release enhances recovery, increases blood flow, improves mobility, and promotes relaxation. This class combines the use of RADroller, relaxation techniques, sport-specific stretching, and yoga asana to facilitate muscle recovery and improve flexibility. Appropriate for all levels.

Following our Pranayama workshop, we will go on a beautiful journey learning about the history and significance of Mala beads as we handcraft our very own, infusing them with our positive energy and intentions.
