We all know what stiffness in the body feels like, especially those spots that never seem to loosen up! While we often assume this to be muscle tension, long lasting stiffness has come to be a better indicator of fascia build up. Your fascia is a connective tissue that runs throughout your entire body, connecting your muscles and other organs. Ideally, it should have a thin, rubbery texture, but - because every single trauma (emotional and physical) is stored in the fascia, it can build up over time in areas of the body where it isn't released.
Cue the latest I & I offering!
Smoke & Stretch is a 45 minute stretch and meditation that aims to offer complete fascia healing. In addition to self and assisted stretching, students will learn how to address pain issues along the sixteen main meridians, by isolating specific areas of the body and using stretches that address the entire organ, and not just one area of pain. We will end the class with a short guided meditation to enhance the emotional aspect of the fascia release, while the stretching will address the physical release. Indica strains will be offered throughout to enhance the practice. Students will receive a juiced shot at the end of class to complete the detoxification of the class.
