THE KEYS TO MOVING WELL THROUGH LIFE

A FULL BODY EDUCATION + EXERCISE BASED COURSE TO HELP YOU CONFIDENTLY MANAGE THE EFFECTS OF AGING AND STAY IN THE GAME.

When you visualize your physical health 10 years from now what do you see? How are your current habits contributing to being able to move well and without stiffness and pain for the next 10-20-30 years of your life?  

You are active! Can’t go on a hike without Ibuprofen because your knees hurt? Are you golfing less because of elbow pain? Are you worried that the next wrong move while doing yard work is going to send you into back spasms?

This course is designed for you!  It’s not a yoga class or a stretching class. It’s Doctor of Physical Therapy guided and tailored towards safe movement for longevity. By the end, you will feel confident in your body and able to do the activities you love with less pain for years to come!

As with anything in life, the habits and work you do now will pay off contributing to your energy and strength in the long run.  


COURSE OBJECTIVES:

  • Feel strong and agile in your body

  • Be tuned in and listening to what your body needs to feel good

COURSE OVERVIEW:


Over the course of 8 weeks, we’ll move through the entire body, giving you a thorough understanding of how the body works as a system and why gaining strength and movement will be the catalyst to greater physical freedom as you age. Each week we'll address one core area, learning about it's important role in your body, how to use specific yoga and physical therapy practices to both prevent and treat pain, and give you a specific series of poses or stretches you can use anytime at home. Our small class size is intentionally designed to provide personalized and specific feedback throughout the course. Classes will include at least 45 minutes of guided yoga practice. Participants must be able to get up and down from the floor on their own, balance on 1 foot at a time in an open space and have a moderate to high level fitness base (if that is a question for you please email and inquire prior to registering). This class is appropriate for all yoga levels, including beginners. Participants will need to wear comfortable clothing for yoga, bring water and a yoga mat. Participants can bring a notebook to take notes or can shoot video of exercises on their mobile phone.
