Give yourself a deep-tissue massage using foam roller and tennis balls with your own body-weight. As a Personal Trainer, Murat is very detailed as to where and how to roll, as well as where and how NOT to roll. Learn how to breathe through the tight spots and trigger points. Murat teaches you how to find and release tight places with the foam roller, giving you suggestions for body-positioning to help you find those points. During breaks in the rolling and conditioning, he leads you through movements to heal the lower back. When you leave class, you find yourself greatly relieved of pain. Counter-indications: People with recent shoulder/neck/back injuries or surgeries should wait until they have recovered before taking the class. Once you are on the road to recovery, Murat will customize the class to meet your needs.
