Join us for a progressive series of classes to help you improve your balance, build strength, and gently gain flexibility. We will focus on foot health, building strength for bone density (specifically hips), and improving functional movements like carrying groceries, walking, and climbing stairs.
There will be adaptations available for various abilities. We'll make use of a chair and a wall for many of our postures and exercises. If you're unable to kneel or get up and down from the floor, you can definitely still participate in this course.
The course will include 4 livestream classes (via Zoom) with Linda which will take place on Monday mornings, and 3 lessons of recorded videos with our studio director, Leena, that you can practice at any time. All videos are yours to keep and continue practicing for a full year, so you can continue to progress and improve at your own pace. You’ll need a reliable internet connection, and a computer, tablet or smartphone to participate in the livestreams and video lessons.
Virtual 7-Lesson Course Overview:
This 7-lesson course includes 4 Livestream classes plus an additional 3 lessons of on-demand video practices to do in your own time. All videos (plus recordings of the Livestreams) are yours to keep for a year.
What the Course Includes:
Every week for the first four weeks, attend live classes virtually. These are interactive classes with opportunities for questions/feedback and connection with your instructor and classmates. Live classes will be recorded and available online afterwards if you are unable to make the class time.
You will also have the opportunity to practice along with specially created videos to review and build on your knowledge. You can practice with these additional three lessons once or several times, and all the videos across all seven lessons (this includes recordings of livestreams) are yours to keep for a year.
A computer or tablet and internet connection are required to participate. A webcam and microphone are recommended in order to interact with the teacher during Livestreams. The online platform is very user-friendly, and two days before your course begins we will provide you with instructions for getting started.
