Would you like to be more flexible in your joints and less tight in your muscles? Regular stretching keeps muscles long, lean, flexible, strong, and healthy. If you spend a lot of time looking down staring at your phone you can develop a forward head posture and rounded shoulders placing a lot strain on your spine. The exercises in this class will help improve your posture and flexibility, which will counteract the harmful effects of long periods of sitting down or staring at that screen. How symmetrical, balanced and aligned is your body? We all tend to move in a way that favours one side of our body. This can occur from writing, carrying your bag habitually with one arm, or crossing your legs more often on one side of your body. Even simple things you do every day at home like eating, brushing your teeth and sleeping position can have a big effect on your posture. When performing routine tasks at work, or repetitive movements on the sporting field, where one side of your body gets used more than the other, it is easy to get out of alignment unless you do something that counter balances this. It is important to make it a habit to stretch on a regular basis to stay aligned and maintain a good range of motion. If you don't you may develop imbalances and find certain muscles getting short and tight, whilst others become lengthened and/or weakened. This increases the risk of getting injured and experiencing joint pain, strains, and muscle damage. This class will use movement, breathing and holding different types of stretches for different time periods to reduce tightness in your muscles and joints. We will do static and dynamic stretches and use (PNF) proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation. We will practice various yoga positions to create a more optimum range of motion, and achieve better alignment and symmetry in your body.
