Roll + Restore: Breathing Focus (Abdomen + Ribs)
Led by: Eduardo Martinez Diaz
From January 19, 2019 at 2:30 pm until January 19, 2019 at 4:30 pm at Gowanus
Do you feel restriction in your breathing? Do you want to feel connected to your center but there is some tightness in your chest muscles or back? Releasing tension in your abdomen and ribs area can increase your sense of groundness and release emotional holdings.
Looking, feeling, and being your better self, requires far more than just working out and eating well. Without embodied self-awareness, you’ll not only never enjoy the physical results you want, but you’ll also never experience the inner space that leads to peace and joy. Roll+Restore combines Eduardo’s sixteen-plus years of practice in wellness, yoga and engineering to access this embodied self-awareness. The workshop takes the best aspects of Biomechanical Alignment Principles, Therapeutic Yoga, Bodymind Ballwork© and Metaphysics to experience a unique and holistic approach to understanding your body. Students who’ve attended this workshop leave feel empowered to access deep understanding of their physical, mental and emotional state. They leave feeling “taller,” “brighter,” “relaxed” and “younger” (yep, these are their words).
In this special Breathing edition of Roll+Restore you will learn techniques* that involve therapeutic yoga postures and laying/moving on rubber balls to self-massage tight fascia around your upper back, abdomen, iliopsoas and ribs. You can incorporate these techniques in your fitness routine to open your spine and your breathing. You will feel physically, emotionally and mentally better.
*contraindications: this techniques aren’t recommended if you are pregnant, had a recent abdominal surgery, serious intestinal or pulmonary issues. Please ask if you aren’t sure.
