Happy Birthday, Ariel K!
Happy Birthday, Keith W!
Welcome, Jeff and Sherry from OPT!


Inaugural Mobilty and Recovery Course at SBK!

Want to be more flexible?  Move better? Perform better? Just feel better? Have you been "kinda stretching sometimes, sorta", in an attempt to get there? Many folks recognize that they have range of motion deficits but are not sure how to go about getting positive results in reducing them.
 
This 3 week, 6 session course will cover the following:
 
-Static and movement based assessments where you'll learn to identify where you're tight, and find out what's on the other side of that tightness.
-How some of your daily posture strategies can lead to common muscular inhibitions and movement dysfunctions.
-Taking the voodoo out of how to do doing something about it using myo-fascial release, neuro-musclular stretching techniques and warm-ups based on  common disfunctions.
 

Schedule
Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6-7pm on the following dates:
11/30, 12/2, 12/7, 12/9, 12/14, 12/16.

Class Size
Space is limited to 6 participants

Cost
