Highlights

Retrain Pain.
Poor, habitual movement patterns cause pain from loss of sensation or control. Regain muscle memory to eradicate sore muscles and joints with self-massage.

Retrain Your 6th Sense
Stop tripping over your feet! Embody your body with proprioception. Add heightened coordination, precision, and power to your yoga and your life.

What it is:

Retrain Pain

Reveal lost, forgotten, or denied Body Blind Spots along the Myofascial Lines. 

Self-Myofascial Release (SMFR) unravels overused, underused, misused, or confused areas across your fascial fabric due to deep-rooted tension, and inefficient movement patterns.
Lack of Proprioception Leads To Pain. The inability to optimally sense where your limbs are in relation to other limbs, or where your body is in space, places you at risk for injury on the yoga mat, the gym, and in daily life.

Retrain Elasticity

Self-Myofascial Release (SMFR) retrains body-wide fascial elasticity. 

SMFR is a self-massage technique that uses therapy balls to treat pain resulting from somatic dysfunction in the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. The balls provide sustained pressure into connective tissue to release tension, physically and emotionally. Think of this course as rehab for you’re the elastin and collagen throughout your whole body!

Your 6th Sense

Embody Your Body 

Therapy balls enhance proprioception by awakening proprioceptors, mechanosensory neurons located within muscles, tendons, and joints. Heighten your personal GPS from the inside out and refine your sense of self-movement and body position. You will become familiar with your unique meridian Body Map.

Reclaim joy in movement

You “Knead” It.

I can attest to the effectiveness of SMFR. In 2009 a yoga trainee seriously injured my SI Joint learning how to do a Hands-On Assist. Searching for ways to erase the chronic pain that ensued, I found self-myofascial release. SMFR has been an integral part of my classes and trainings for 15 years now, because I know the power it has to transform pain. 

The 7 seas of support

What are Myofascial Meridians? 

This “Sea Of Myo-Fascia” is made of long lines of muscles and fascia that wrap around and separate muscles, bind individual muscle fibers, and support bones, tissues, and organs while connecting your entire body into a unified whole. Restore a state of flow to your 7 Seas Of Support… from your feet to your face.
