The Center’s 1 day 8 hour Rocking and Rolling to Release course aims to help the end user feel release through the fascial, boney and muscular system.
This course uses specific body positions coupled with gentle rocking movement to facilitate the release. A semi hard ball is used to further enhance the release by adding pressure. A softer ball is also used to help support the body as well as to aid in the rocking
The course comprises several “sequences” that will move the body through different planes of motion activating the fascial lines throughout and facilitating release. These sequences may be integrated into any group fitness/Pilates mat class.
