The foam roll class is based on the fact that loosening up the connective tissues increases muscle flexibility, in addition to reducing pain. The cylinder shaped foam rollers are made of varying densities, which can be used to vary the pressure applied. In foam rolling class, you will learn a variety of different ways to use the foam roller. You will practice rolling it over your muscles slowly, stopping and holding on sore trigger points until the tension is released, usually in about 30 to 60 seconds. Applying sustained pressure with a foam roller can release tension in the muscles and tissues, and minimize constriction. The class will run approximately 45 minutes, please bring your own foam roller that is approximately 3 feet long or more.
