Mobility & Strength For Lifespan
‘Move it or lose it’ is a term we hear all too often. The question is how to move it and keep it moving safely as we age or become injured or less mobile. Working on and off the mat, the workshop brings together research and techniques to increase muscular awareness, effectively use body weight to develop strength and maintain mobility of our hips, shoulders and ankles. We’ll use elastics, blocks, chairs and gliders to create kinesthetic awareness, and a few games just to have fun!
Please bring: A yoga mat, a water bottle, and a pair of socks if possible.
