Unravel yourself with Myofascial Release: workshop with Maureen Jensen

Saturday 6th Mar 2021

Do you ever find that you feel pain, limited mobility and tightness in your body?

The fascia is a series of connective tissue within our bodies, encasing every organ, bone, nerve, muscle and blood vessel. It’s deeply sensitive and after periods of stress, injury and overwork, can become aggravated, creating those ‘tight’ sensations and pain.

In Maureen’s two hour workshop you will discover the healing practice of myofascial release, improving the stretch reflex of muscles, lymphatic circulation and blood oxygen levels which can alose release contracted fascia.

You will learn to combine roll-and-release techniques using tennis balls and yoga props with the long held poses associated with Yin.

Suitable for anyone, yoga experience is not required. You will leave relaxed and mobile, with a restored body and mind.

Please bring a yoga mat and a towel.
Tennis balls and yoga blocks will be provided however you are more than welcome to bring these props if you have access to them and would prefer this.

 

Cancellation up to 48 hours prior to event date is possible subject to a $5 cancellation fee. Less than 48 hours’ notice of cancellation is only possible if we can fill your place from a wait-list.

** This event has a maximum of 30 participants and is specifically planned to provide safety and comfort observing current COVID distancing rules.  Qi Yoga at Freshwater is a beautiful, large and well ventilated space.

 

Meet Mauren Jensen:

From her early adult life, Maureen has always had a fascination and keen interest
in exploring spiritual enrichment, eastern culture and philosophies. In her early twenties, Maureen studied a Traditional Japanese Martial Art that led to many trips to Japan to immerse herself in tutelage from the Grandmaster Masaaki Hatsumi Sensei. This led to 15 years of study and introduction to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Reiki, Shiatsu and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). Teaching was a natural progression and she operated a studio in Surry Hills for 10 years.

After having children she continued her love of movement and staying fit but felt “something was missing.” Only attending various yoga classes spasmodically in the last ten years, led to a more regular practice after becoming injured with back and knee issues. Hatha and Restorative yoga were her predominant styles of yoga classes, until being introduced to Hot Vinyasa and Yin which really cemented her love and fascination of all things yoga. After reading The Path of the Yoga Sutras, a practical guide to the core of yoga, written by Nicolai Bachman, it ignited a curiosity to continue learning and “dive down the rabbit hole”. She graduated from the 420hr, Level 1 Teacher Training at Qi Yoga, Sydney under the tutelage of Mark O’Brien and Joan Miller and 50hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Dr Truth Robinson, Yin Living, Manly.

2021 will be filled with further study, commencing with Five Element Theory Open Lecture Series with Yolande Hyde over the next couple of months and further Yin Yoga Teacher Training. Maureen believes in supporting her students in a holistic manner and encouraging them to be authentic to themselves and following their own journey.
