Rolling for Resilience

What if nurturing yourself and enhancing resilience were as easy and fun as rolling playfully on a foam roller? Resilience, the ability to bounce back from struggles and stresses, is vital to our health and wellbeing.

This 3-hour experiential workshop explores the best foam roller techniques for self-massage, body alignment, and core strengthening. Posture awareness exercises and dynamic movements on the roller help you connect with your body’s resilience and your capacity to thrive!

Foam rollers are simple tools that invite you to:

  • Playfully discover and explore how your body feels and moves
  • Enhance breathing, relieve body tension and muscle imbalances
  • Promote ease of movement, improved posture and greater flexibility
  • Restore and create healthful, efficient, balanced and joyful movement

Each participant will receive a Star Roller and Rolling for Resilience instructional book to take home after the workshop.
