Performer Wellness: Muscle Release Exercises and Massage Techniques
Partnership with Duke Arts Create & DuWell
About the Workshop
Looking for some calm in the storm? An hour away to take care of yourself? Join Courtney Liu (Duke alum, professional dancer, yoga instructor) for an hour of muscle release, massage techniques, and relaxation. By releasing the tension we carry in our bodies, we support our vitality, improve our mental/physical performance, and cultivate an inner sense of peace and contentment. Techniques will focus on the feet, calves, hamstrings, hips, hip flexors, shoulders, neck, and more. Treat yourself to an evening of compassion and care for your body. You’ll leave feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world again!
