Did you notice we added mobility classes to our schedule?! Are you wondering what a mobility class is or what to expect? I am here to explain what you should expect, why we offer this and when this class is being offered!
Mobility classes are geared toward athletes wanting a more therapeutic practice focusing on self myofascial release (SMR). Some yoga poses may be incorporated to increase joint range of motion (ROM), but props such as therapy balls or foam rollers will be the focus during this practice. This class is an excellent supplement to your training program. Come prepared for a deep tissue massage and soft tissue manipulation experience.
This class was essentially created through the study of The Roll Model created by Jill Miller and Kelly Starrett, along with Gray Cook‘s FMS techniques. Our mobility classes focus on myofascial release through the focus of neural, muscular and fascial systems in the body that can be negatively influenced by poor posture, repetitive motions or dysfunctional movements. Using either therapy balls or a foam roller we will apply gentle force to “knots” in the muscle fibers to encourage straight alignment toward the direction of the muscle or fascia. We will offer you the proper techniques to manipulate the tissues to the spot of sweet relief.
We believe pairing our mobility classes with your workout regimen will deliver improvements in flexibility, muscle recovery, movement efficiency, inhibition of overactive muscles and pain reduction, with just minutes of application. Which is why this class is only 25 minutes long!
Our goal is to restore optimal muscle movement and function. During our mobility classes the techniques we instruct will produce positive feel good results.
