Functional Core Strength is the ability to control the position
of the spine, which refines alignment and creates balance, allowing us to develop and use strength efficiently in our daily
activity. This class will teach students how to build a strong foundation, using the pelvic floor and muscles that control
the position of the spine and the pelvis to cultivate strength and control. Emphasis will be placed on alignment,
motor control and balance while performing bodyweight exercises. Students will learn how to progress an exercise program to
continuously build on the foundation exercises with seated, prone, standing and dynamic exercises that mimic our activities
of daily living.
Yoga with Resistance Stretching involves
traditional yoga principles combined with resistance stretching to teach students how to enjoy the benefits of yoga while
stretching smarter. This technique increases strength, flexibility, balance and mobility while remaining injury free. Resistance
stretching involves moving a muscle from a short position to a long position, while resisting (contracting) the muscle throughout
the entire movement. Resistance with stretching keeps the muscle elastic and more stable, while preventing overstretching,
for a more effective and injury free experience.
Mobility for Movement: Maintaining mobility
as we age is crucial for a high quality of life and the continued ability to perform our activities of daily living and recreation. In
this course, students will learn how to improve performance and resolve dysfunction using tools and movement methods. Self-treatment technique that helps prevent and eliminate pain, improve posture and performance,
heal injury, and erase the negative effects of aging and active living will be explored. These techniques simulate the hands-on techniques that manual therapist use
to eliminate stress, pain, and dysfunction. This proactive approach to maintaining a healthy, pain-free, active lifestyle
is the best solution for living better in your body.
