Level 1: Foam Rolling (Self-Myofascial Release)

Foam Rolling:

Principles and Practices

Self-myofascial release (SMR) has been shown to relieve muscle and joint pains and improve flexibility and range of motion. This four hour workshop covers the fundamentals of myofascia, reviews the latest SMR research, and dives into the TriggerPoint SMR movement philosophy using the GRID foam roller. Participants walk away with practical knowledge and hands-on experience for coaching and cueing movements that can be scaled to all fitness levels for pre- and post-workout foam rolling.
