FASCIA RELEASE WORKSHOP 2017

Becca Crawford

Some of you may recall that I ran a few foam rolling workshops a couple years back. I have had such overwhelming positive interest in this area from clients, customers and friends about foam rolling: why do you do it? what is it? how do you do it? I often explain and showcase the benefits of fascia release through foam rolling and rubber balls to my clients in my one on one health coaching sessions and they are blown away by the benefits. I love to move and I love sharing what I know and what has benefited me, so I have teamed up with PT Michael James of Primal Fitness to show you the what, why and hows of releasing fascia in this upcoming workshop.


Since I started fascia release a few years ago this is what I have noticed in my body:
•    My injuries have dramatically reduced
•    My osteo-skeletal issues have minimised
•    My flexibility has improved out of sight despite doing less stretching
•    My recovery after intense interval training has improved
•    I am able to manage and resolve the vast majority of my muscular-skeletal niggles myself

... and, most importantly, when I foam-roll consistently (a few times a week at a minimum) I am pain-free. For someone who spent most of their teens, 20s and 30s in chronic osteo-skeletal pain, I can’t begin to tell you the sheer ecstasy of being pain-free. Moving to a nutrient-dense wholefoods diet, being well hydrated, sitting less, sleeping more, being more mindful, quitting long slow steady-state cardio and simply moving how our bodies are designed to move, all made profound improvements to my ailing health, but fascia release (through foam rolling and rubber balls) has, without a doubt, taken it to the next level. It was the last missing piece of the puzzle in my osteo-skeletal malaise. 


COST STARTS from $70 PERSON 

The cost of the 2 hour workshop is;

- $70 if you bring your own foam roller (short to medium length preferable) and fascia release ball.
- $80 if you bring your own foam roller and we will order a fascia release ball for you to keep AND use in the workshop.
- $110 if you bring your own fascia release ball (e.g. made by Ironedge) and we will order a foam roller for you to keep AND use in the workshop.
- $120 if you do not have your own ball and roller and we will order both of them for you to keep AND use in the workshop.


WHAT YOU WILL GET

•  An explanation of what fascia is, its role in the human body, what causes it to tighten, the consequences of tight fascia, and how to loosen it
•  An explanation of why stretching alone is not enough
•  Practical demonstrations
•  1.5 hours of releasing fascia via foam rolling and fascia release balls
•  Opportunity to ask questions
•  Your very own foam roller and a rubber ball for you to release fascia at home at your convenience (if you don't already own both)!
•  Opportunity to check out a new gym and be given 1 week free unlimited classes!


THIS WORKSHOP IS IDEAL FOR


•  Those who attended one of my earlier workshops and wish to take fascia release to the next level
•  Those who want to take their flexibility and /or athletic performance to the next level
•  Anyone with tight muscles, tight spots, niggling pains, or inflexibility in certain parts of their body (especially mums carry bubs, anyone who carries heavy loads, those who don’t counter all of the forward movements in day to day life, or those feeling tight /constricted in the chest, shoulders and any part of the body)
•  Anyone who enjoys the feeling of being massaged (yes please!) or would love to have a regular massage but might not have the time and/or funds for it
•  Those who feel like they are not getting enough benefit from stretching alone
•  Those who want to learn how to effectively release fascia and iron out tight spots in the comfort of their own home
•  Anyone curious to try something new and have some fun!

Becca Crawford

You may recall that I ran a few foam rolling classes earlier this year. I had such overwhelming positive interest in them and numerous requests to run some more for those who missed out. So back by popular demand I am running some more foam roller workshops for you all this term!

Since I started  foam rolling a 1.5 years ago this is what I have noticed in my body:

•    My injuries have dramatically reduced

•    My osteo-skeletal issues have minimised

•    My flexibility has improved out of sight despite doing less stretching

•    My recovery after intense interval training has improved

•    I am able to manage and resolve the vast majority of my muscular-skeletal niggles myself

 ... and, most importantly, when I foam-roll consistently (a few times a week at a minimum) I am pain-free. For someone who spent most of their teens, 20s and 30s in chronic osteo-skeletal pain, I can’t begin to tell you the sheer ecstasy of being pain-free. Moving to a nutrient-dense wholefoods diet, being well hydrated, sitting less, sleeping more, being more mindful and  switching to interval training as opposed to long slow steady-state cardio, all made dramatic improvements in my ailing health, but foam rolling has, without a doubt, taken it to the next level. 

I have had a lot of interest and enquiries from clients, customers and friends about foam rolling: why do you do it ? what is it? how do you do it? I often show it to my clients in my one on one health coaching sessions and they are blown away by the benefits. I love to move and I love sharing what I know and what has benefited me, so I have teamed up with my PT Sean Sheridanto show you the what, why and hows of releasing fascia using foam rollers and rubber balls in this upcoming workshop.

Sean Sheridan is a professional Strength & Conditioning Coach with a passion to strive for superior human movement. His clients over the years include professional athletes as well everyday people wanting to get the best from their bodies.  A very important part of his coaching is striving to maintain high performance throughmyofascial techniques and mobility work to get the best results in the healthiest way possible. Sean is also an endurance athlete and has competed at a high level in various Ironman Triathlon events in Australia, Japan, South Africa and UK over the past years.  You can follow him on Instagram @resultspt.

The cost of the class is dependant on whether you bring your own foam roller and rubber ball. For those who bring their own foam roller and rubber ball the cost is $45 per person. For those who don't have either a rubber ball or a roller we will pre-order one for you to have available on the night which are then yours to keep in which case the cost is an additional $8 for the ball and $45 for the roller. For those who can bring either a ball or a roller the cost will be $45 for the class plus either $8 for the ball or $45 for the roller as the case may be. When booking in please advise whether you will need a ball or a roller so we may place orders.


WHAT YOU WILL GET:


•    An explanation of what fascia is, its role in the human body, what causes it to tighten, the consequences of tight fascia, and how to loosen it

ANOTHER BONE-BROTH CLASS...

Becca Crawford

Ok, I lied. I said I wasn't going to run any more bone broth classes this year but I have been approached by a group of PTs from my gym to run a class for them and I'm opening it up to the general public to join!

Home-made stock (aka bone broth) was a staple in all traditional cultures. People of yesterdays ate nose to tail – meaning that the whole of the animal (including the bones, fat and organ meat) was consumed. In fact these ‘odd bits’ were the mostly highly prized part of a kill for our hunter-gatherer ancestors, as they worked out through trial and error over millennia that they were the most nutrient-dense. Today, most people in Western society simply don’t consume home-made broth on a regular basis, either because of lack of information or know-how on where to source or how to prepare broth properly and deliciously. Here’s your opportunity to build strong immunity, robust digestive function and vibrant health for the remainder of 2015 and beyond by learning how. One of my missions in life is to being back these age-old nutritious foods to the modern table. With a vengeance. And a playful twist.

I’ll teach you the ins and outs and everything you need to know about how to make a gelatinous, delicious broth and how to incorporate it in your and your family’s daily diet. 

I have a e-folder full of testimonials about how my bone broth and my broth making workshops changed people lives. Here’s one I received from a client recently:

“Hi Soulla, I’ve made a dedicated effort to drink broth every day for the last couple of months and the pain in my arthritic hands has almost gone….It’s a miracle!!” 
- Sandy Tate.

In my workshops I will explain the scientific reasons for HOW & WHY this traditional food works miracles!

COST OF THE 2 HOUR WORKSHOP IS $80 PER PERSON AND INCLUDES:

1. A detailed workshop booklet with over 25 pages of information including:

i) the health benefits of bone broth
ii) step by step guide on how to make a gelatinious chicken, beef, pork and fish broth,
iii) recipes incorporating broth
iv) FAQs
v) where to source pastured bones
vi) ways to incorporate bone broth into daily meals and drinks.

2.  1 hour informative nutritional theory discussion and Q&A
3.  1 hour practical demonstrations
4.  Hands-on experience
5.  Food tasting that incorporates various types of stock, including a dessert! 

WHEN: WEDNESDAY 7TH OCTOBER, 7.30PM
WHERE: 23 KENT STREET, WAVERLEY
RSVP: TO SECURE A SPOT YOU WILL NEED TO:

1. TEXT Soulla Chamberlain on 0407 871 884 to confirm if spaces are available (spaces strictly limited!)
