Release Your Body Workshop

What is it?

A starting point to releasing tension in your body and increasing awareness of muscle tightness and areas you need to work on. Using massage balls, half and full rollers, combined with your body weight you will travel through each segment of your body and unravel and release tensions that have built up over time causing discomfort, restricting movement and effecting your quality of life.

Your body should feel safe and comforted as we work through a set of exercises that encourage it to let go of tensions and unravel knots. The balls can be adjusted/changed so you are working with a tension/softness that works for you.

The workshops last for 11/2 hours. Maximum number of participants is 4. Cost is £15.00 per person.

What will I get out of it?

  • You will feel lighter and be able to move more freely. You will have a deeper knowledge of your body, it’s knots and restrictions and what you need to do to reduce muscle tension, feel lighter, more comfortable and able to achieve your full potential.
  • Your comfort will be improved as you move through your daily life – eg while sitting, driving, bending or standing.
  • Your ability to exercise – eg walking, cycling running or pilates – will be enhanced.
