Massage Day with Crystal
December 6th + 20th
Call/text 973-943-6163 to reserve your 1 hour time slot
Meet Crystal, licensed massage & neuromuscular therapist. She will be offering 1 hour massages at the studio all day long twice a month. Neuromuscular Therapy is soft tissue manipulation similar to that of myofascial release. It helps to release trigger points, deep muscular tension, and fascial congestion. It is also very effective in treating most chronic pain and degenerative muscle conditions. If time allows for it I like to do a fusion of this and a regular Swedish or deep tissue (depending on desired depth of pressure) so that you still get the release where you need it but also get the benefits of a deep relaxation.

Feeling stressed? Sluggish? Lonely? Anxious? Excited? Are you looking to deepen your yogic practice further by calling upon, and awakening “stuck” energies? Each week we will begin class with a freshly brewed cup of herbal tea that aids in saucha or “purification,” that will ease respiratory discomfort, combat exhaustion, and mental sluggishness before and during the exploration of mantra recitation, or japa, to strengthen our yogic practice through abhyasa or “repetition.” The word mantra is derived from the root “man,” meaning “to think,” and a mantra is said to be a tool by which we can control our thoughts. Mantra stands for protection (trana) of the mind (manas). We will practice the vibrations of om, and other mantras such as Om Namah Shivaya, Sita Ram, and Lokah Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu to produce positive mental habits, and overcome spiritual darkness that rests deep within us. Come awaken your incredible transformative Shakti power, and protect the mind.
Note: Bring your mala beads. No mala beads? No problem. Just bring yourself.

Myofascial Release + Slow Flow with Morgan
December 27th 11:30 am
Included in class packages
In this class we will couple a slow flowing practice with myofascial release. Myofascial release (MFR) using RAD balls helps us release tension, create greater range of motion, and encourages hydration of our tissues while targeting our fascia. Fascia is its own living, communicating, interconnected system that thrives from our head to our toes. It surrounds every muscle and every organ, so not only does it connect us, it protects us as well! MFR will be used before, during, and after the practice so that you’re able to feel the difference in poses that you practice weekly.
If you have osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, or questions regarding if myofascial release is appropriate for you, please call us before registering so we can make sure you’re accommodated! Pre-registrations is a MUST.
