What is Myofascial Release Yoga?

Myofascial release yoga is a type of yoga that works with the connective tissue in the body. Called “Fascia” and “Myofascia,” this tissue connects and protects muscles and muscle fibers. Myofascial tissue can often get stuck—due to inactivity, injury, or other causes. This can cause pain, stiffness, muscle weakness and inflammation. Myofascial release yoga targets this connective tissue, releasing tension and allowing the fascia to move the way it’s supposed to.


A typical myofascial release yoga routine will involve the use of props—blocks, foam rollers, or balls. These props are utilized by exerting targeted pressure on specific points of the body, encouraging the fascia to release and become more malleable. This type of yoga is highly beneficial for the muscular structure of the body, and can help you heal from injury and chronic pain. Here are a few more things you should know about myofascial release yoga.
