4 Week Exercise Class Series
Our bodies are amazing. They have so much movement potential and are capable of so much more than we often believe. We should know them, pay attention to them, understand how we are using them, move them in nourishing ways that allow us to live well in them for as long as possible. It’s never too late, or indeed too early to address alignment issues, postural habits or movement patterns. Are you after movement longevity? I know I am.
I want you to be able to move better so that you can age better. Although we can expect a natural decline, what if the decline and a loss of function is simply due to weaknesses created by poor movement habits or a lack of movement in general?
Have you recently found yourself complaining about various musculoskeletal issues? Are your knees or some other body part beginning to shout louder? Are you falling into the trap of telling yourself that these issues are because you are getting older? Are you struggling with your exercise program because a body part keeps letting you down?
This Dynamic Ageing Course Curriculum organised into 8 classes over 4 weeks is designed to radically change your relationship with your body and daily movement. These classes will be highly educational and inspiring. I will provide context for every exercise. You will understand why you do the exercises and how they relate to your life.
After 4 weeks you will understand your body better, have tools to increase your body’s untapped physical capacity and move in ways that offer more strength and mobility day to day, not just during class. You will be inspired and motivated to have a movement practise and make habit modifications to accelerate the learning in class and know that your body is on a different trajectory than when you started.
We will be working through simple exercises, stretches and postural adjustments, all of which can be scaled to your particular strength and mobility. You will have a chair for stability or to take a rest on at any time during the class.
We will cover:
Fall prevention, balance and stability.
Everyday walking and more complex walking
Reaching, carrying, lifting and more functional movements
Movement as part of life
Whole body mobility
This series will begin on Tuesday 1 October and finish on Thursday 24th October. We will meet twice a week for 4 weeks for a total of 8 classes.
