ROLL + RELEASE 30/45 min

You've been loving the relaxed vibe of our Stretch sessions!
With our new format  - let's step the benefits up even further!
Roll + Release will involve the use of Foam Rollers and Trigger Point Massage Balls whilst still incorporating some of our most favourite stretches and mobility movements - especially for those at a desk all day!
You may already have a roller and ball at home (or even pool noodle and tennis ball!)
Either way, we have plenty in stock for you to loan or purchase!
In fact - every participant will receive their very own PiNK TRAiNiNG Trigger Point Massage Ball FREE!
Incorporating a foam roller and trigger point ball into our stretch sessions will mean a deeper release of knotted up areas. Tightness/knots in our muscles and fascia can restrict our bodies normal movement and mobility that in time can aggravate or cause injuries, misalignment, pain and discomfort. These knots also make regular stretching far less effective.
Imagine your body as a rope. Perhaps a long piece of rope from the top of your hip right down to your ankle. The rope tied in knots at several intervals. Knots in your glutes, hamstrings and calves. You try and straighten and stretch your leg out, you get a bit of relief but essentially you are back to feeling stiff, sore and crampy. That rope would stretch out better and straighter if those knots were undone right? So imagine those knots week after week, month after month left tied up. That rope (muscles, ligaments, fascia) are now stiff, dry/dehydrated. The fascias natural lubricant (called hyaluronan) not being able to move and stretch freely with the body.
Using a combination of techniques and sequences on the roller and ball will not only release tension, but give those stiff areas time to re-hydrate. Following fascia release with complimentary stretches will be an eye opener in showing you just how much more effective and deeper those stretches can be post release and therefore more beneficial whilst doing stretches after your regular workouts.
Using a roller and trigger point ball can be like your very own remedial massage except you are in control the whole time when it comes to pressure! 
Lisa will cater stretches and positions to suit each recruit. Therefore places will be limited to ensure she is available to assist with technique and variations for maximum release and relief. 

Suitable for: Most injuries

You will need: Trigger Point Massage Ball/Tennis ball, 90 cm Foam Roller preferable- smaller will suffice, mat/towel, drink bottle.
