Our bodies have been molded into shapes and conditions that reflect our lifestyle choices of activity or inactivity. This shape may no longer allow you to perform functional movements that should come naturally. In its place we experience immobility, pain and degenerative conditions.
Classes begin with using foam rollers and balls to massage and warm up the muscles and fascia. From there alignment principles are taught that promote recognizing and changing detrimental movement habits to ones that support health and vitality. You feel better because you move better throughout the day....whether at home or at the gym.
Topics of classes vary from week to week and do not need to be taken in consecutive order. Some examples of these are balance, walking gait, getting down and up from the floor, floor sitting, squatting, crawling and lifting.......all skills useful in our daily lives. Movements can be adapted to any level and no one is pushed to do more than they are safely capable of.
In compliance with restrictions due to Covid, class size is limited to 8 participants so we can safely socially distance. Please wear a mask if you have not been vaccinated and bring your own yoga mat if you have one.
Hand sanitizer is readily available and classroom and exercise props are routinely disinfected.
Beginning in September Restorative Movement addresses:
“Releasing the Fascia”
Your fascia (connective tissue) is the living scaffolding system of your body that holds all your parts in place. It attaches skin to muscle, muscle to bone, bone to bone and surrounds virtually every structure in the body. Your fascial system has absorbed years of tension, poor habits or scar tissue and responds to these stresses by either adapting and growing stronger or adapting toward dysfunction.
In class you use a variety of foam rollers and pliable balls to reshape your body, develop heightened body awareness while eradicating aches and pains caused by underuse, overuse, accidents and surgeries.
Classes are slow paced and moves can be modified to your skill level. Don’t worry if you can’t get down or up from the floor….most moves can be adapted to a chair or wall and you are never asked to to do a move you are not comfortable with.
