MELT Workshop for Yogis and Non-yogis – Sunday, May 21, 2017 from 3:30 – 5 pm

Although Yoga can improve flexibility and muscular strength, it can also cause injuries. Many of the postures used in yoga practice are difficult, if not impossible to execute without compensation. Not just devoted students, many teachers find themselves injured during practice… maybe even you. How do you reduce the risk of yoga injury and recover more quickly if you find yourself injured from your practice? MELT is a simple, easy self-treatment technique that directly affects the part of your body commonly stressed during yoga practice – your connective tissue. Better than modifying postures as we age, we can learn how to truly return our body to its ideal state. MELT is a perfect complement and pro-active solution to your yoga practice whether you are just beginning or were born a yogi. Workshop is open to yogis and non-yogis alike. No previous experience is necessary. MELT kits and rollers are available for sale at the workshop. Participants receive a MELT Map printout for at home treatment.

The Wounded Weekend Warrior — MELT Workshop for Athletes and Non-athletes – Sunday, June 25, 2017 from 3:30 – 5 pm

During an average year, 85% of elite and recreational athletes are injured and 80% of all orthopedic injuries are sports or exercise induced. Too many people experience chronic pain and injury while doing something positive for their health. In this workshop, we will reveal a solution to achieve peak performance without painful side effects of training. Learn to self-treat the missing link just beneath your skin that remains untapped by exercise, yoga, stretching, or myofascial release techniques and gain immediate improvement in range of motion and alignment along with long-term benefits like improved performance and joint resilience. Workshop is open to athletes and non-athletes alike. No previous experience is necessary. MELT kits and rollers are available for sale at the workshop. Participants receive a MELT Map printout for at home treatment.
