Body Rolling

In this class we will explore the use of foam rollers, and proper technique, in order to get many of the same benefits as a sports massage, without the big price tag. The foam rolling not only stretches muscles and tendons but it also breaks down soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue. By using your own body weight and a cylindrical foam roller you can perform a self-massage, break up trigger points, and soothe tight fascia while increasing blood flow and circulation to the soft tissues. This class is beneficial for all fitness levels.
