I've promised to try to go a little lighter on the 'bla bla' for 2017. But could I expand maybe just a little?
What if your pain and lack of mobility aren’t due to your age, but to your habits? What if changing how you move can change how you feel, no matter your age?
This idea is central to why I've developed this program. I love all sorts of movement. I love dancing, climbing, walking and swimming - but I could see patterns in myself and patterns in my friends, family and students - and I knew there had to be more to why so many of us were in pain.We approach our weekly classes with this idea of an evolving understanding of the mechanics of your amazing body. We look at what it needs to thrive, and what sorts of things can be leading to discomfort. We have our Essentials exercises - which cover the kinds of things (and really awareness) that you can keep coming back to all day, and then we also work with a range of other series to unwind tension, get stronger and enjoy ourselves too.
I love to see people trying something new and the look of real achievement when they realise that age does not have to limit us. I've worked with 16 year olds who initially had a bit of a struggle with hanging from a monkey bar and 70+ year olds who are now doing so gleefully for the first time in their lives.
There's no rush and there is no magic bullet. It takes time to change your movement blueprint - but we make sure that we have some fun along the way. Hope you can join us.
Are you new to working with us this term? Here is a video of our Essentials program, with a few bonus exercises along for the ride.
