FREE YOUR FASCIA
RETREAT DAY

SUNDAY, 15TH OCTOBER 
11.30AM - 5.30PM
@ CUCUMBER FIELDS

In this retreat day Imogen is excited to share with you her knowledge and passion about working with the body's fascial system.

She will guide you through two different practices a dynamic flow practice in the morning and a yin practice in the afternoon both will include myofascial techniques that will help you to begin to understand and embody your fascial body, ultimately exploring how we can listen, feel and respond to bodily sensations from within for a more intuitive led experience.  

 

Imogen will also lead an interactive workshop where she will unravel the simple science behind this body system - giving you an opportunity to ask questions. 

What will be covered:

  • What is MFR?

  • The role the fascia plays in the immune system

  • The fascia as a sensory organ, it's relationship to the nervous system and it's ability to communicate

  • Ways a varied yoga practice supports healthy fascia

  • 5 key areas of your body to work with at home

Katie will also be offering MFR treatments.  What is a Myofascial Release treatment?  It is a safe and effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. 

Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create myofascial restrictions that can produce pressure on pain sensitive structures, and don't show up in many of the standard medical tests ands scans. 

Unlike Swedish massage, Myofascial Release treatment is performed directly on skin without oils or creams, which enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.

Treatments are 30 minutes and £40. Please contact Katie directly to book.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Kay, Harpenden

Imogen breaths life and enthusiasm in all her approaches to yoga.  She aids the practitioner to really sense life's fullness and rewards. 

Clare, Hampshire

I’d recommend a retreat with Imogen to anyone. The yoga teaching is comprehensive and holistic and caters for all levels and bodies.  Her warmth and care for her students is always evident. 

Sarah, Harpenden

Imogen is probably the best yoga teacher I have, ever been lucky enough to have. Her knowledge is exceptional and I love the way she has themes for the different seasons and little mantras that she repeats during lessons.
