Releasing tension by dancing with balls | English spoken

Vrijdag 23 april van 19:00-21:00 uur

Docent
Natalie Heller

For whom
All levels.

Content
Learn to use Franklin balls to tone and massage the body.
We will work on releasing the psoas muscle (which tightens up when seated for extended periods). We will learn rolling techniques, compression and pressure points to release muscular tension. You can expect to use your feet a lot in this workshop and experience a  strong sense of full-body release afterwards.

For this workshop you need a pair of soft inflatable balls size 10 cm. This can be Franklin balls, or another brand.
If you do not yet own a set you can order them online or if you live in Leiden/ Voorschoten we can arrange pick up.
