MELT Method for yoga and physical therapy: certified MELT instructor, Stephanie Howard, presents a MELT Workshop for Yoga and Physical Therapy at UpDog Yoga Rochester in an interactive, supportive, workshop environment, featuring techniques from The New York Times best selling book "The MELT Method." Take your yoga practice or other fitness routines to the next level and learn how to avoid common injuries. While yoga and other forms of physical exercise can improve flexibility and muscular strength, it can also cause compensation, compression and even pain if done incorrectly and repetitively. MELT is a simple, easy self-treatment technique that directly affects the part of your body commonly stressed during yoga or physical exercise-your connective tissue. Better than modifying postures as we age, we can learn how to truly return our body to its ideal state. This session will focus on how to rebalance your nervous system and rehydrate your connective tissue, which surrounds muscles and joints. Learn how treated this tissue can improve your alignment, strength and even your breath. The MELT Method is a perfect complement to yoga, whether you are just beginning or have practiced for years. No prior MELT nor yoga experience required. MELT directly addresses the body systems in a way no self treatment can. You'll notice results immediately!
