Myofascial Pilates

Learn a self-myofascial release and reflexive strengthening practice you can repeat on your own in a whole body workout that also feels like receiving hands on therapy. Receive personal guidance on how to identify, relieve, and release your own postural imbalances/fascial restrictions. Melt, unwind and stretch releasing myofascial restrictions to restore your mobility, reflexive strength and balance. Enhance strengthening efforts, improve your alignment, posture, range of motion and live pain free.
Move through a sequence of yin (passive) and yang (active) shapes on the Pilates mat and/or Reformer (if you have one) with props, that soften and stretch fascial restrictions, train adaptability, core strength and balance body and mind. 
In each session, we will explore how to use various props to create the gentle and sustained pressure of myofascial release, a form of Osteopathic manual therapy known for achieving long term pain relief and holistic healthv. Build awareness, connection, fluidity, and strength listening to the wisdom of your body as the guide for your daily care. 

Since 2011, I have been developing this practice that blends the genius of two master teachers, Joseph Pilates and John F. Barnes, PT. Solbody Myofascial Pilates is a fusion of breathwork, restorative movement, and the principles of Osteopathic manual therapy, John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release®, Pilates, yin yoga and Qigong. Master the art of listening to your body and learn simple daily self-care practices designed to release tensions in the fascia, the seamless connective tissue that protects, surrounds and permeates all structures of the body. 

Props: a chair, 2 yoga blocks, rolled up yoga mat or towel and a foam roller if available. Pilates Reformer, Tower and/or Chair in your location required for Reformer, Tower, and/or Chair sessions online.
