The Myofascial Release for the Hips course begins with an intro to the fascia as well as some background on myofascial release (MFR) for yoga students or teachers. Myofascial release techniques can be a very helpful adjunct to a yoga practice to help with range of motion, injuries, scar tissue, tension, muscle recovery (for athletes) or muscle function. In this course, you will learn how to use self-applied MFR techniques, what to avoid, and the benefits of this type of self-care for the hips. Then you will be guided through specific techniques that you can utilize anytime.

This course is suitable for anyone, all levels of yoga as well as novices.
