Restorative Movement

 

What is Restorative Movement?

 Based on the teachings of world renown biomechanist, Katy Bowman’s  Nutritious Movement Institute, it teaches the importance of correct body alignment in all daily activities.  Through better alignment you develop better movement skills because you are using your body the way it was designed and become more fit for the real world.

Why Is It Important?

Good body alignment is not a single position but a way of moving—in a class, in a day, in a lifetime—that keeps body parts from breaking down prematurely. Good alignment is about the form you assume while taking exercise, but it's also about the amount of movement you're doing as a whole.

How Do I Achieve Better Alignment?

 In class you learn to observe, recognize and understand how you currently move can be damaging to your body.  We examine  large movements by breaking them down into smaller parts to then  “rebuild” them using alignment principles and  corrective moves. Through practice of these alignment principles and correctives in class and  incorporating them into your daily activities, change begins to occur that reverses the damage and pain created by bad movement habits.

 Who Is It For?

Classes are gentle but challenging and can be adapted to all ages and various fitness levels.  Even small changes can make a significant improvement in how you move and feel. 

Classes do not need to be taken in any particular order but do build on each other for an understanding of why how you move matters for your health and well being.
