Last night Machelle Lee from Roots & River Yoga gave us a detailed presentation on joint and facia problems specifically tailored for the Dental Hygienist. She showed us ways to alleviate the pain and stiffness that our bodies are subject to as a result of the posture necessary to perform our job.
Machelle then lead us through an hour long Yin yoga class!
Everyone left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated 🧘🏼‍♀️
Thank you Machelle!

We have an amazing meeting coming up this Thursday Nov. 3rd!

Gentle Yoga: Joint and Fascia Care for Dental Hygienists
Machelle Lee, MA, E-RYT 500, CMT

Being a dental hygienist is physically demanding. Treating several patients a day, using repetitive motions, and holding awkward postures can lead to musculoskeletal misalignment and pain. Offering oneself simple but meaningful physical care is essential to maintaining a healthy body for the day to day and also for the longevity of one’s career.

In this Study Group, Machelle Lee will introduce you to the science and theory of Yin Yoga and how accessible, longer held, floor poses can release and regenerate constricted fascia and joint tissues in the spine, lower back and hips. She will also lead you through a series of “nerve glides” and simple exercises you can do at the office to release tension in the neck, shoulders and upper back.

Upon completion of this session, participants will:
Intellectually and somatically better understand the nature of Yin Yoga for releasing and rejuvenating joints and dense fascia bands
Experience how gentle yoga and “nerve glides” offer a release and circulatory flush for transforming muscular tension in the shoulders, neck, hips and low back
Feel deeply relaxed and rejuvenated
Leave with accessible concepts and tools for self care in the office and at home

Please bring: A yoga mat or a beach towel/throw blanket to be under you while we practice on the floor. You might like to bring an extra towel/small blanket to use as a pillow or prop in some poses.

Bio: Founder of Roots & River Yoga in downtown Brunswick, MD, Machelle Lee has 30 years of experience as a yoga teacher and massage therapist. She specializes in functional anatomy, joint and connective tissue health, and is known for her relaxed and humor-filled way of transforming complex ideas into accessible practice. Machelle offers students simple tools in a grounded approach to self-development and overall wellness. Learn more at
