Fascial Fitness

Fascia is a body wide network of connective tissue responsible for postural integrity and efficient movement. A restriction in any part of this network affects movement throughout the entire body. Work towards releasing those restrictions through a series of movements tailored to strengthen the Fascial system by breaking up adhesions, rehydrating the tissue and restoring a youthful bounce and glow! Although similar, the Friday class will involve more movement and therefore called, “Fascial Movement”. Instructor, Ocean, continues to learn new routines and techniques making each class different.  Min 6/Max 13
