February 3 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
We’ve all spent too much time sitting over the past three years. It’s time to start moving well again!
This non-aerobic class works with gravity, body weight, breath and relaxation to improve overall strength, flexibility, muscle tone, posture and alignment and is particularly helpful with pre-season conditioning (sports and garden), The class structure is built on proven stretch and strength sequences, as taught and developed by Carey, while on faculty with The School of the Toronto Dance Theatre for over 15 years. Moving Well counters the negative impact of extensive sitting, now recognized as a major contributor to poor physical wellbeing.
The Moving Well sequences have their roots in Nicklaus, Feldenkreis, and yoga techniques and are supplemented with additional sequences drawn from the work of neuromuscular therapist Irene Dowd. They are moderate to mildly extreme in physical demand on the body. Pre-requisite: participants must be comfortable with sitting or lying on the floor for extended periods of time and we recommend that you consult with your healthcare practitioner prior to starting any new program of physical activity. Moving Well is not intended to replace qualified and/or prescribed physical therapy or other medical recommendations for specific injuries or chronic conditions.
For comfort and ease, participants should dress in comfortable loose clothing and bring a firm pillow, towel and/or yoga mat.
