This program is about taking time for yourself! Candice, a certified Yoga Tune Up Instructor, has developed a curriculum that follows the basics of self-massage, adding deep PNF
stretches, and muscle activation. This sequence of activities is used to reduce muscle tension and improve mobility, range of motion, power and strength. It’s a great stress reliever too!
This program addresses plantar fasciitis, shin splints, back pain, sciatica, digestion issues, frozen shoulder and impingement, tension headaches, and just general wear and tear.
