Been busy on your computer and smart phone lately and needing a massage? Combining gentle Yin Yoga poses and deep manual therapy using tennis balls, this 60-minute class is designed to help you to release tensions and reduce pain from the upper body region. The main target areas include upper trapezius (upper shoulder), infraspinatus and teres minor (lower shoulder), and the pectoralis major (upper chest area). After the class, it’s advised to drink plenty of water to rehydrate your fascia, and rest your body well.
