Although yoga can improve flexibility and muscular strength, it can also cause compensation, compression, and even pain when done incorrectly. How do you go deeper in your practice and become more grounded and centered while reducing the risk of injury? MELT is a simple self-treatment technique that works by rebalancing your nervous system and rehydrating your connective tissue, which is all around your muscles and joints. Learn how treating this tissue can improve your alignment, strength, and even your breath. MELT is a perfect complement to yoga, whether you’re just starting or have been practicing for years. All participants must be able to get to and from the floor without assistance, since many moves are done on the floor. Pre-registration is required. Wear comfortable exercise clothes; bring a yoga mat and water.
