FreeBody: Therapeutic Foam Rolling, Gentle Stretching, and Breathing to release tension, pain, and discomfort with Cat
Join our founder, Cat Matlock, as she shares her deep anatomy knowledge and understanding of unwinding chronic pain and tensional patterns in the body, breathing practices to stabilize and increase prana energy, and meditation/mindfulness practices for healing the brain. Cat is a Trigger Point Therapist (since 1993) and has spent her entire career studying how to relieve pain in others and how to teach people to relieve their own pain through the use of therapy balls, foam rollers, and yoga for strengthening and flexibility. Her approach is unique in that it weaves her knowledge of trigger points into the rolling practices. Cat is now adding to every class breathing practices and meditation/mindfulness practices to more wholly address the imbalances that human life brings.
This class changes its focus about every month and you can catch what’s happening by checking our Facebook Page every Tuesday.
