The Ties That Bind – A Myofascial Release Training
This training is an in-depth journey into the anatomy of fascia; what it is made of, how it behaves, reacts and responds to movement, stillness and stimulus.
Through lectures, discussions, practices and hands-on learning, we will traverse the myofascial trains and large muscle groups and using balls, rollers and blocks. We will explore how to effectively manipulate this tissue for better movement, mobility and overall health.
Different to a yin training, The Ties That Bind uses both Vinyasa and Roll & Release techniques to explore fascial trains.
This 30hr course counts towards the Power Living 500hr Certification, for 200hr TT graduates.
