In this ONLINE workshop, you will learn techniques to massage your own face, neck and shoulders. Using touch with your hands and 2 MASSAGE BALLS (e.g. Franklin Balls or Slings Massage Balls), there are multiple ways to invite glide back into your connective tissue, promote blood flow and create a sense of relaxation. The tension in the face, neck and shoulders may surprise you. Ease the stress away and carve out time for yourself. Your head will be 'floating' like a balloon by the end of the session.


What you need:

  • 2 Massage balls (preferably the soft red Franklin Balls. Please contact me if you don't have any).

  • A mat

  • Something to sit on

Bring the spring back in your step! Our feet are the first base of support in movement and can be neglected till a problem arises. The connection to the ground with our feet daily has a ripple affect up the body. This can be both positive or negative.

This is a functional, informative and experiential 2 hour workshop.

"I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your Roll and Release class online. I have attended your events in the past and haven’t been able to make it recently so having a live virtual class was exactly what I needed. Honestly it was like having you in my living room and I feel so much better after the session. I think this will become part of my weekly routine now I’m working at home. I would encourage anyone to get involved in virtual sessions after today!"


"Thank you for a wonderful workshop! I didn’t really realise how stressed I’ve been, until I tried to release my fascia and muscles etc today. I have a long way to go, so will be joining you for many more."


"Finally I get round to also saying a HUGE thanks for the roll & release class. It was exactly what I needed, to relax, stretch and find a moment of 'calm'. So very well needed in this time, and I also think via Zoom it was very successful!"



Pilates, Yoga and Slings Myofascial Training™ is for everyone.

It is up to each individual to assess whether they are ready for the class that they have chosen to attend. Physical exercise can be strenuous and involve risk and so you are advised to seek the advice of your medical professional before embarking in any form of physical exercise. If you suffer from specific injuries or disease please consult with your physician first. It is your responsibility to assure that the classes you take and the variations you choose are appropriate for your physical and mental conditions/limitations. 

The practice of Pilates, Yoga and Slings Myofascial Training™ requires you – the practitioner – to gauge the safety of your practice within your personal physical limitations. It is better to build up slowly than to force and strain.


Please remember to:

  • Take responsibility for yourself and your current abilities during your online practice. 

  • We feel different every day, take note of that. The day before a particular exercise may have felt easier than the current day. Take this into account.

  • Take note of your comfortable limits and if you’re in any doubt whatsoever, adjust accordingly or please seek medical advice.

  • Take breaks if needed or adjust the movements to suit you.
