About this series...
In FreeBody Therapeutics for the Upper Body, students are taught breathing practices scientifically proven to reduce stress and tension in the nervous system, creating more calm and ease through the whole Self. Once the nervous system is softened, we will do some simple movement to open the joints of the upper body: mid- and upper-back, shoulders, neck, jaw, elbows, and wrists. Students will be led through simple strengthening practices targeting weak areas and helping to restore balance to the muscles. After the tissues are warmed, we used balls and foam rollers, mostly RAD tools, to free the connective tissues and release tension in the muscles. Cat is a Trigger Point Therapist and has worked with tens of thousands of clients and students. One of her specialties is knowing where in the muscles tension tends to gather and what symptoms those tense knots cause. With this in mind, we can target the places that are specifically
causing your pain or restriction.
Simple yogic based stretching is guided after the therapeutic rolling (Self Myofascial Release) to help retrain the tissues to adjust to their new, longer and freer state.
Class ends in savasana which may include short guided meditations and Cat playing her harmonium and singing to you.
