Flow, Roll & Restore
w/ Jen Mast & Amy Yapp
Pre-registration $30 / $40 day of workshop
Fun Fact: Your fascia has been with you since you were 50 cells old! Fascia, which means “band” or “bundle” in Latin, surrounds, connects and supports our muscles, organs, bones, tendons, ligaments and other structures of the body. Releasing fascial adhesions is like clearing out the cobwebs between the muscles, allowing them to slide and glide more efficiently. Daily habits such as poor posture, sitting too much, old injuries (and the list goes on!) causes fascia to become restrictive and “sticky” limiting mobility and causing pain or stress in the body. Mindfully working these “sticky” areas in the body leaves us feeling physically and mentally refreshed. In this workshop we will combine rolling methods along with slow flow and pranayama (conscious breath) to refresh the body, improve posture and stimulate deep relaxation. Join us to release stuck energy and pave the way for healing!
Like many yogis, the first moment Jen Mast stepped onto a yoga mat, in 2005, changed her life. Very quickly, Jen fully immersed herself in her yoga practice, finding amazing benefits physically and mentally. Jen vowed she would pay forward this amazing gift. In 2008, she brought yoga into the public school setting where she worked as a high school counselor. She witnessed firsthand the benefits of adding yoga into the Health and Wellness curriculum as well as in her one on one counseling sessions with her students. Jen is an RYT 500 hr. and she also received her Lifeforce Yoga® certification this past summer at Kripalu, training under Amy Weintraub, Yoga For Depression. Jen has a fun and uplifting teaching style that will leave you refreshed and enlightened.
When Amy first tried a yoga class as a busy, young elementary school teacher many years ago, she decided it “wasn’t for her”. Ten years later and recovering from some serious health challenges, she decided to give “that yoga thing” another try. It was that second class after a decade hiatus that profoundly changed her life. She walked away standing taller, breathing better and knowing she had found something integral to her future. A born teacher, Amy couldn’t help sharing what she had experienced with others and began teaching yoga in 2003. Amy is honored and grateful to have completed her 200 hour teacher training with Shawn Shaw, Johnny Gillespie and Diana Hoscheit of Empowered Yoga . Always focusing on healing and prevention, Amy’s teaching has a strong foundation built upon core work, alignment-based poses and tension relieving breath work to restore and empower her students at their own pace. She believes in challenging herself and those around her, but is committed to listening to the body and making sure every class has a healthy dose of fun. Delight and connection are at the heart of every class.
