Foam Roller-
Foam rollers offer many of the same benefits as a massage; when used properly it can help breaks down soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue while increasing blood flow and circulation. The superficial fascia is a soft connective tissue located just below the skins surface. It wraps and connects the muscles, bones, nerves and blood vessels of the body, literally connecting every cell in our body. For various reasons, the fascia and underlying muscle tissue can become stuck together. These adhesions result in restricted muscle movement and can cause pain, soreness and reduce flexibility. Gentle, sustained pressure under traction on soft tissue results in softening and lengthening or release of the fascia and break down of scar tissue and adhesions between skin, muscles and bones. You will leave class with a whole new sense of freedom, openness and flexibility.

“Contrology (known as Pilates today) is a complete coordination of body, mind, and spirit. Through Contrology you first purposefully acquire complete control of your own body and then through proper repetition of its exercises you gradually and progressively acquire that natural rhythm and coordination associated with all your subconscious activities.”
– Joseph Pilates
