      About this trip

      Welcome! Release in Boca is a Fascia-Yoga Healing Retreat to Release the "old" so the NEW can emerge. October 15 to 18, join Maria Alfieris (myofascial release) and Brie Mazin (yoga) at the Waterstone Resort to explore 3 days of Integrated Movement. We'll be releasing and healing as we explore the body-mind-spirit system. Learn how to release all that is not serving you anymore inside and outside of your life. You'll take a journey  within and learn how movement and energy medicine teachings can activate your Inner Physician and enhance your immune system. Optional fundraiser will take place at Rise31 to support Thrivers Guide for anyone interested in joining! 

      About the yoga: Yin & Yang = the perfect balance.  First part of class Brie will guide the group in an all levels vinyasa flow class connecting breath with movement. The second half of class she will get a bit deeper into the connective tissues with a long, slow and deep focus. The end result, a workout and a work-in.

      About the myofascial release: When our Fascia becomes restricted, we can lose range of motion, experiencing pain and discomfort. Myofascial pain differs from other types of pain because it originates in "trigger points," which are related to stiff, anchored areas within the myofascial tissue.  Some of the healing shifts that you will feel when experiencing Fascial Release: Emotional releases, decreased pain & inflammation, enhanced movement, improved immune system function, and releasing our blocked energy to "flow" again, as it works through the meridian system. 

      Come spend 3 days in a small intimate group and uncover more of your Truth. Let your AUTHENTIC Self out. 

      More Details

      Who is this retreat for? Release in Boca is for anyone who has an interest in exploring deeper inside themselves via yoga and energy medicine teachings.  

      What will this experience be like? You will partake in yoga classes (good for beginners to advance) and learn about the healing aspect of Fascial Release.

Her students trust her & take their learnings off their mat & into their LIFE. On paper, you will learn that Maria is a Physical Therapist, a Myofascial Master, & a Reiki Virtuoso. She brings her gifts & talents of healing thru Fascial Release which she has been teaching for 34 years. She has given a series of courses in Myofascial Mobilization & incorporates into her work the understanding of emotional causation of disease & dysfunction. Her healing workshops & one-on-one sessions are designed to blend her knowledge & experience of physical therapy, myofascial release, energy healing, & her spiritual trainings. Through hands on techniques, she guides you toward freeing your fascia which helps you release patterns of emotional & physical pain that have been holding you back from reaching your full wellness potential.


      I can’t describe this incredible experience in words. I definitely encourage anyone who is interested in adding skills and spiritual knowledge to their life to take this course!! Maria and Jane are such beautiful souls and are both helpful and encouraging in their teaching!!
      By Julia W for Fascia Release Workshop in Stone Harbor, NJ on Jun 03, 2024
      I had a life-changing experience with Maria and this class, related to not only bodywork, but also how the body, mind, spirit and emotions are all connected. Maria's knowledge, and her holistic, compassionate, direct, hands-on approach to healing was refreshing and comprehensive. I learned so much about fascia, bodywork, releasing emotions, and how I can promote my own healing as well as that of my clients. Maria and her assistants created an instant community where it felt safe for all of us to be ourselves, be vulnerable, and learn. I highly recommend her workshops and I would do another one in a heartbeat.

      I really loved going to Greece with this group of women. I went solo on my 1st trip to Europe (Greece) so it was a little intimidating! The Hosts were both very easy to talk to & really took my questions into consideration & gave everybody a sense of belonging. The way the trip flowed was incredible & they really handled the details. They both had a great sense of humor too! Greece was phenomenal & I will go back. Jill H. Asheville NC
