Our fascia in an extremely strong, connected web of tissue which threads through our entire bodies, surrounding muscle, organs, nerves, bones and even cells. When one spot gets traumatized , the effects of this ripple throughout our whole bodies!
The fascial web’s natural fluid state is disrupted, causing tightness, hardening and PAIN. With just a few simple myofascial self-release (MFSR) techniques, we can smooth out traumatized areas, returning this crucial tissue to its normal supple, balanced state.
This three hour workshop will begin with an introduction to Cannabis and pain management that will give individuals the tools to begin or continue their cannabis journey with more knowledge and specificity on dosing, effects and interactions for relief of chronic pain conditions. You will then learn ways to manipulate your own fascia using three simple, easily-accessible, everyday tools - a tennis ball, a wooden dowel, and a squash ball.
Once the fascia is warmed up, we will practice a few simple, fully-supported Restorative Yoga poses to quiet the nervous system and prepare us for deep rest to incorporate the changes into the body. A delicious half hour Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep, the deepest, most healing rest you will ever experience!) will follow.
Each participant will emerge blissful, with a handout so that you can repeat the exercises and Yoga practice at home, as well as essential oil samples. There will be an option to purchase the simple tools, or you can make your own!

Moonroot Meditation is a mindfulness-based cannabis education project. The vision for this project is to foster connection and knowledge-sharing through accessible, inclusive, and light-hearted community gatherings & workshops where cannabis is not only discussed, but also celebrated. Moonroot Meditation was created out of a dream to bring the therapeutic benefits of intentional cannabis consumption and mindfulness meditation together in supportive and open-minded environments that welcome all people and facilitate curiosity and growth among the community.
