Fascia Release Workshop

This workshop addresses sports related muscle tension and joint mobility.

Muscle attaches to bone and so where there is muscle tension there is often compromised range of movement and muscle activation. This then inhibits speed and/or endurance activity where optimal mobility, stability and strength is required.

 

Fascia encapsulates everything inside the body; muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, nerves, organs. It runs as a continuum through the entire body and when one area of fascia holds tension it has the potential to affect other areas of the body.

 

In this workshop you will learn a series of full body stretches and how to effectively use mini equipment (foam roller and spikey ball) to release superficial muscle tension and deep fascia. It's like giving yourself a massage!

Project You

This workshop is about Empowerment!

Taking time to actively reflect on your life experiences, your defining moments, your strengths that have carried you to where you are now and your future dreams can be one of the most liberating tasks you set yourself.

Sometimes we are so ready for a new chapter to begin only to reach a roadblock. We want to move past it yet there is something holding us back. This workshop is about harnessing our limiting beliefs and projecting yourself into that next chapter.

Places limited to 4 participants.

Feedback from previous participants

"I loved that Sumi created a safe and nurturing space in which I felt at ease to be open and authentic. I likes that everyone had a chance to share their thoughts. It was nice hearing the answers that the others gave and feeling like we all we in 'it' together. 'It'. being both life itself with all the ups and downs, but also in terms of showing up on the day to be real with each other."

"I learnt so much about myself in this workshop. That I'm actually travelling pretty well in life, but that there is room for improvement with relationship to self care, and perhaps even redefining what that actually means to me."

"Project You creates a beautiful time and space to really give thought to what it is you want with relationship to your intentions and goals both internal and external. It is also a great opportunity to reflect upon how you look after yourself. I think these often tend to be

thoughts that flow through and don't result in action. For me, Project You was helpful with regard to bringing all these 'shoulds' into fruition."

Pilates + Yoga What's The Difference

This workshop takes you through the foundations of Pilates and introduces you to the format of Clinical Pilates integrated with a Yoga session which then highlights the differences between these two wonderful exercise therapies. The main concept of Pilates/Clinical Pilates is to focus on deep abdominal strength (core strength) in order to then efficiently create stability throughout the joints in the body which then allows for optimal muscle activation. There is a very literal mind-body connection when working from the core in Pilates/Clinical Pilates. Yoga focuses more on stretch, flexibility, mobility, while working from a strong core and the mind-body connection is of a more meditative nature. Often deep abdominal strength and joint stability is assumed in Yoga rather than taught and so this workshop will teach you the benefits of understanding your core to enhance your Yoga practice. 

This workshop is scheduled for 2020.
