Mobility and Recovery Intensive

Want to be more flexible?  Move better? Perform better? Just feel better? Have you been "kinda stretching sometimes, sorta", but making little if any progress? Many folks recognize that they have range of motion deficits but are not sure how to go about getting results in reducing them.
 
Better mobility will translate to better quality of movement, which can mean: bigger lifts, a faster 5k, a better "Fran" time, and more energy overall.
 
During this 4 week course you will:
  + Learn to identify where you're tight, and find out what's on the other side of that tightness, by participating in both static and movement based assessments.
+ Learn to recognize how some of your daily posture strategies can lead to muscular inhibition, in turn leading to movement dysfunction.
+ Take the voodoo out of techniques like: Self Myo-Fascial Release*, and Neuro-Musclular, Dynamic, and Static Stretching.
+ Spend some dedicated time* working on mobility, during class and during in-between class homework sessions.
+ Learn specific mobility based warm-ups to use pre-workout.
+ Receive take-home materials to guide you through the process.
+ Finally start to move and feel better!

Upcoming Cycle Details
Dates: 2/20, 2/28*, 3/6, 3/13
