Do you floss? Whether it’s at your bathroom sink, on the dance floor, or on your yoga mat, flossing should be part of your repertoire. Nerve mobilization, or nerve flossing as it’s commonly known, is the practice of gently pulling on or stretching a nerve to help it conduct or work more effectively. The technique is easy to add safely to a yoga therapy class by keeping a few things in mind, namely to move slowly, work gently, and without pain! Benefits of nerve flossing can include improved mobility, increased flexibility and range of motion, and reduced nerve pain, tingling, and numbness. These things, in turn, can give you the drive to further floss...on the dance floor at least. I’ll be teaching a session on incorporating nerve flossing as part of your yoga therapy toolkit at the 2019 @nhpcanada Annual Series this Sunday. I *may* include a dance move. May. God help the participants. Photo credit: Last year at @bratsera_hotel @rorytucker#NHPCConference #GreeceSoulRetreat #yogatheory

I loved all the flossing. I may be stopping in Calary in late summer.🧘♀️
The Osteopath had me do a flossing exercise but I obviously have not done it in a long time so forgot...
This is a great idea! I never thought about incorporating this clinical tool into yoga
We can't wait to see you there and learn all about nerve flossing!
Yes!!! So important!✨🙏🏽❤️
I need to learn more about this!
