In a forward facing and limited moving society, we find our bodies feeling tired, sore and restricted. These classes are designed for adults who need that extra push to get your body moving with less restriction.
Classes are designed smaller so you will have hands on attention by a registered massage therapist, who will take into account your personal limitations.
This will be a slow moving class infused with essential oils, gentle music and instruction on diaphragmatic breathing and guidance on proper stretching position.
Cost: $25 per class
Limited number of participants
Pre- registration is preferred.
Please bring a yoga mat if you have one
REASONS TO STRETCH
Improved Flexibility: Stretching helps increase the range of motion in your joints and muscles. This increased flexibility can make everyday activities easier and reduce the risk of injury during physical activities.
Reduced Muscle Tension: Stretching can alleviate muscle tightness and tension, which can result from factors like prolonged sitting, stress, or physical activity. By releasing this tension, you can feel more relaxed and comfortable.
Enhanced Circulation: Stretching promotes better blood circulation to your muscles and tissues, which can help with muscle recovery and overall health.
Injury Prevention: Regular stretching can help prevent injuries by maintaining the suppleness of your muscles and connective tissues. This is particularly important for athletes and people engaging in physical activities.
Improved Posture: Stretching can help correct imbalances in muscle strength and flexibility, which can contribute to better posture. This, in turn, can reduce the risk of developing musculoskeletal problems.
Stress Reduction: Stretching, especially when combined with deep breathing and relaxation techniques, can have a calming effect on your nervous system, helping to reduce stress and promote mental well-being.
Better Performance: Athletes often use stretching as part of their warm-up routine to prepare their muscles for physical activity. Proper stretching can enhance athletic performance by increasing the range of motion and reducing the risk of injury.
Pain Relief: Stretching can alleviate some types of musculoskeletal pain, such as lower back pain and muscle soreness, by releasing tension and promoting better circulation to affected areas.
