- Thu, Mar 12 – Apr 23 6pm – 7:30pm Beyond Flexibility: Mobility for Yogis & Athletes (7 wks for $115)
Take a journey towards greater physical freedom and ease in everyday life, sports, and yoga in this course that goes beyond mere flexibility. If you want to change how your body works, stretching isn't going to cut it - and this is where mobility training comes in. Sessions will include some yoga flow, a little education, but will focus on targeted and precise joint mobilization work that will give you new experiences of strength and change your range of motion.
Many of us come to yoga as a way to connect with our bodies, only to find that the poses can be extremely challenging if you're at all inflexible. We all know that getting the "deepest expression" of a pose is not the point of yoga, but increasing your physical capacities is still a worthy goal towards living better as a human animal.
Sliding scale pricing is available for this (or any) course to make it more accessible for people with low income. Please email email@example.com to inquire.
