Explore self-massage and myofascial release, a method for relaxing strained muscles using sustained levels of pressure, to whatever degree you find comfortable, in areas of connective tissue surrounding muscles and bone.


How It Works

In this experience, you will be guided through simple myofascial release techniques, targeted stretching, and finally, restorative yoga poses that allow the whole system to relax.

You will be exploring myofascial release; as mentioned, a method for relaxing strained muscles using sustained levels of pressure, to whatever degree you find comfortable, in areas of connective tissue surrounding muscles and bone. 

Additionally, you will enjoy some restorative yoga, a passive practice that involves laying on the floor in various positions, often supported by props like pillows and blankets, with the goal of stress/tension reduction, and relaxation. 

Participants should prepare for this experience by finding some open floor or wall space and having the following props within reach: a lacrosse or tennis ball, blankets, pillows, a few thick books or yoga blocks, and a little wall space or the back of a sturdy door.


Kristina has been teaching yoga for over 10 years and believes that our ability to move the body and develop mental focus can be a gateway to finding greater connection and meaning in a world where it's easy to feel disconnected and alone. Conscious movement gives your body/brain a much needed break as science has shown that prolonged stress leads to poor health, and taking a little time away from to-do lists and deadlines to care for yourself leads to greater efficiency, and positivity through the work day. Kristina has specialized training in therapeutic movement and nervous system regulation, and has a knack for being able to teach movement in a simple/approachable way. She is also known for her soothing voice and down to earth approach to mindfulness meditation. Meditation in the workplace is a growing industry due to science backed proof of how it benefits the brain. As our brain is the command center for everything we do, it is sound logic to take care of it by reducing stress and increasing connection! Kristina's events can be mixed and matched or done as individual sessions (see individual event pages for full details): 1. Yoga for People Who Work at Desks: mindfulness baked into simple movements designed to mobilize stiff/cranky bodies due to hours of sitting. A standard class includes joint circles, jaw and neck care, feel good stretches, breath awareness, a mix of seated and standing work, and a closing meditation to let the eyes and brain rest and reset. 2. Approachable Meditation (even if you think you can't meditate): mindfulness meditation centers around giving the brain a job to do. As you train your brain to keep coming back to the point of focus (which could be a visualization, various breathing techniques, or silently repeating a phrase), something interesting starts to happen as you experience the spaces between active thoughts. 3. Self Massage: You, a Ball, and a Wall: this event is a treat! All you need is a tennis ball (or something similar), and enough wall space to stand and lean back against a wall or the back of a sturdy door.
