Do you feel sore, stiff and generally achy? Have you lost the spring in your step?

These classes can restore your ease of movement and keep you active as you age.

·     Learn about the Fascial System
·     Use simple, effective movements to care for your feet and body to enhance your daily activities.
·     Develop fluid and efficient movement which is achieved through optimising the fascial tissue and the fine coordination of the nervous system.
·     Understand how to take the info you learn in class to perform any daily task with ease.


Release your feet

 Your feet are the foundation of healthy posture and efficient walking.   Balls and other materials are used to release your feet enabling intricate movements of the bones when walking to transfer the force smoothly through the body to allow for energy efficient walking. 


Load your fascia

Small bouncing movements load the fascia to build elasticity in the tendons and the whole fascial system.  Preparing for a movement by making a preparatory counter-movement maximises the fascial elasticity to make smooth movement.  Eg. Bending your knees and pushing your feet into the ground before standing.
Greater elasticity and integrity of the fascia provides greater adaptation during more complex movement.


Unravel your fascia

Unravelling long myofascial chains with whole body movements, foam rollers and balls engages the whole fascial system. Creating more balance and integrity throughout your whole body rather than an isolated area.


Pandiculate

A safe way to restore muscles to their full length and optimal function. A delicious yawn like movement for your whole body.  Cats and dogs refresh with similar natural movements several times a day.  Contract, slowly lengthen and completely relax.  Thomas Hanna identified 3 main reflexes that humans adopt due to stress, injury or repetitive movements. Hanna referred to chronically tight tissues as Sensory Motor Amnesia (SMA); SMA alters the way you move and how you experience yourself from within.  


Sensory Integration

Posture is a response.  The ideal posture is the body being able to adapt to whatever experience.  Being supported by the ground and sensing the space around you enables you to move more fluidly.
