This feel good, posture improving class focuses on spinal mobility, bringing breath and flow from head to toe. You’ll elongate the body and move your spine in every direction getting both stretch and strength in each move. A great class to weave in between your harder strength and cardio workouts.
This is a new series which focuses on exercises that will integrally improve your posture with the goal in mind to sit and stand taller, but not just that, to do so with greater ease. Additionally, better posture will alleviate undue tensions, aches and pains; it will help you live and move in a more ideal alignment so your joints are happier; it will also help you move with greater ease and efficiency in all your endeavors. Better posture enables our body to better deliver fresh oxygen and blood to tissues and vitals enabling us to feel more energy, less fatigue, contributing to better longevity. The benefits are numerous and this program will help you work towards seeing these improvements in your own body.
Our pace is stretchy and flowy following breath. Today’s class is about opening up the spine in all directions and as we go we’ll also lengthen the hamstrings, sides of the body and elsewhere we may find tightness or stiffness.
Move through exercises that target our postural muscles. Focus on strengthening the deeper set of muscles which hold up our spines and keep our joints healthy and mobile. Specifically focus on posterior chain strength (the back of the body) to counteract the forward pulling force of daily activities (phones, computers, screens and more) that creates imbalance between our front and back sides often creating poor posture. Always keep the hips and pelvis strong, mobile and flexible for a healthy low back and foundation to the spine and legs below. Learn the purpose and focus of certain exercises. Empower you to feel healthier, stronger, happier and more flexible in your own body.
