Yoga & Your Fasciawith Kerry Donnelly & Dr. Megan CiccoloSunday, November 2nd 2:30-4:30 pmJoin Doctor Megan Ciccolo, Physical Therapist specializing in John F. Barnes myofascial release and Yoga Instructor Kerry Donnelly to discover the missing link in your Yoga practice. In order to fully open your mind, body, and spirit you need to open your fascia. You may be asking yourself “What is my fascia and why do I need to open it?” Fascia is the connective tissue system which creates a continuous three-dimensional web of support throughout the body. Over time restrictions develop causing the tissue to solidify, this causes impairments such as changes in posture, decreased flexibility, or pain. By opening this tissue you will experience more freedom of movement, prevent injuries, and maximize your athletic potential. In this workshop you will learn myofascial release self treatment techniques using small balls we will add complimenting Yoga postures. This course was designed to be an introduction to the principles of fascia and self treatment techniques. For more information on fascia visit Megan’s website at www.restrictions-released.com.Each participant will receive two small myofacial release ballsBasic knowledge of Yoga is recommended
