Foam Rolling Class with Kristen
Sunday, May 8th

foam rollingFoam Rolling is a myofascial release technique designed to stretch out connective tissue, break up scar tissue in the body, and massage and release tight muscles. It also increases flexibility while decreasing muscle tightness, as well as muscle soreness. Join Kristen for these drop-in classes once per month and see how foam rolling can improve your yoga practice and mobility in daily life!

Since this first one is on Mother's Day, if you bring your mother, you both get in for $5 each. :) 

Please bring your own foam roller if you have one. We have 20 available for use while at the studio, and if all of those are taken, you can also purchase a foam roller at the studio.

 Jason Boness

JasonbonessI have always had a naturally high mind/body connection, so yoga has been a very intuitive process. In the early 2000s, I was a world ranking high jumper for the University of Oregon.  Those years of highly explosive movements that were unbalanced between the sides of my body slowly took a toll.  I’ve had three arthroscopic operations to clean up and repair a torn meniscus on my right knee, a number of smaller but notable muscular sprains/strains.

It’s very interesting to see how yoga has reversed the process of wear and tear on my body, and I can now confidently say that I currently feel like I did when I was fully trained and jumping at my prime.  I feel 16 years younger inside my body, there is lightness and a clear kinesthetic awareness, but also a clear and crisp mental picture with an ability to block out peripheral mental chatter.  I’m very excited because it’s been about 18 months since I’ve placed my full focus on yoga, and I can’t wait to see where the rest of my life takes me and my yoga practice. Thank you all for sharing your practice with me, as I can tell you nothing is appreciated more than having like minds come together and share some encouragement, and a little pain that will better us all in the end. Namaste
