"WALKING and BALANCE"

 

Put a spring back in your step as we explore elements of well-organized walking and good balance in November-December.

As always, classes will take place in various positions (supine, side-lying, seated, standing, walking). Each class will offer a different movement pattern.

Some elements that we will be exploring:

  • Organizing your spinal engine for balanced, powerful walking.
  • Coordinating your hips and shoulders for better balance and improved gait.
  • Improving your connection to and engagement with the ground by improving foot function.
  • Coordinating the hips, knees and ankles for the long-term health of your joints.
  • Increasing adaptability in your head/neck/shoulders for balanced shifting of weight between your legs.
  • Much more!

This class series will use "walking" and "balance" as the over-arching themes, however you will experience benefit to your overall "organization" that will be helpful for other activities as well.

Join us!

Series runs November 5 to December 12. No classes during the week of Thanksgiving.

MONDAYS @ 10:00 AM

TUESDAYS @ 5:15 PM

October 2018 Classes

Theme of the month for all classes...

"SITTING"

 

We all spend a ton of time sitting - why not learn to sit more comfortably, with more ease, an ability to breathe and a relaxed neck, arms and shoulders?

We will explore the elements of good sitting posture during the month of October. Classes will take place in various positions (supine, side-lying, seated). Each class will offer a different movement pattern.

Some elements that we will be exploring:

  • Balance your pelvis for a more even distribution on the sit bones.
  • Learn to feel when your posture is "off" so you can make adjustments.
  • Align your spine and balance your musculature for a more effortless posture.
  • Use your breath as both barometer of good organization and change agent to improve organization.
  • Relax your neck and shoulders and improve your "head carriage".

This class series will use "sitting" as the over-arching theme, however you will experience benefit to your overall "organization" that will be helpful for other activities (standing, walking, running) as well.

Join us!

Series runs October 1 to October 31.

MONDAYS @ 10:00 AM
