Upside Motion Pilates Roll & Release

Roll & Release

This Roll & Release class is a great way to learn how to perform self-myofascial release of trigger points in the muscles. Trigger points are sore spots that form within muscles or tendons. Foam rolling is a way of massaging away muscle soreness in trigger points, and preparing your muscles for deeper stretching. Using the foam roller to loosen the tension in your muscles provides an excellent way of obtaining the benefits of self-myofascial release.
