Every cell in the body is held in a net of connective tissue referred to as the myo-fascial system. You could say “we are one big muscle with a variety of sleeves.” The fascial system is an information highway, delivering messages throughout the body through this liquid medium.
When properly hydrated, this fascial system allows bodily tissues to glide and slide with ease. With chronic or repetitive movement, injury, environmental shifts and with age, the body can become dehydrated, setting in patterns of strain and reduction of movement and pain.
Join Marti for an exploration of the fascial system and it’s relationship to the subtle body — the flow of prana through nadis.
We’ll use therapeutic rolling techniques, subtle somatic (SATYA) movements , conscious breathing and long slow help postures, to build awareness and release patterns of strain.
SATYA, is a style of somatic training, known as Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement. All the SATYA and yoga forms help irrigate blood and lymph throughout the body, helping to keep our muscles and skin subtle
*Suitable for all levels. No experience required. Wear comfortable clothing.

$35 per session, $55 for both
