Continuing Ed: Foam Rolling + Yoga

March 21 | 4:00-6:00 PM

As far as we know, the earliest yogis didn't practice with foam blocks, straps or sticky mats, but as yoga continues to evolve we often turn to props to helps us access a posture more fully and deepen our asana practice. With that in mind, we'll look at how a foam roller and other Self-Myofascial Release (SMR) techniques can be used within a yoga practice.

Foam Rolling and SMR are well known in the physical therapy world and gym setting, but how does it fit in a yoga studio? Understanding the incredible benefits make it a complimentary component to a yoga practice and can lead to greater flexibility, range of motion and an overall sense of ease.

This training with Dan Carter, E-RYT 500, will provide you with the benefits and principles of how foam rolling works and how it compliments a yoga practice. We'll explore specific foam rolling exercises with corresponding asana and how you can create a well-rounded class for your students.
