Movement As Medicine
April 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:15 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Monday, repeating indefinitely
Functional Therapeutic Yoga and Somatics = Movement as Medicine!
Are you interested in educational class setting where you’ll learn about your body, be invited to ask questions, and welcomed to share what you notice?
Then this class is for you!
Each week, we focus on isolating and paying attention to a specific part of the body. This class draws on functional therapeutic yoga movements that “reverse engineer” yoga poses.
“Reverse Engineer”…What’s that?
We explore How Your Body Is Built To Move in relationship to yoga postures. The movements start smaller and slower – exploring body mechanics and how the body relates to any tension, strain, pain and/or stress you may be experiencing.
You will build strength, increase range of motion, flexibility and understand your body better. All of which is needed to reduce and prevent injuries and to move and breathe with more freedom. In addition, you will learn how to take this information outside of the class setting and implement it into your daily life.
Since our body is not just a machine with isolated moving parts, Somatic Movement exercises are also explored to help you become more conscious of the connections that ripple through your body.
