Spinefulness – Foundations Intensive (7/16 – 7/19, & 7/21)
Are you plagued by chronic tension, stress, aches or pains? Are you fit, but injured? Whether you are a high performance athlete or someone who sits all day, having your bones work for you, instead of against you, will relieve your pain and allow your body to regain its natural strength and efficiency.
In this 5-session week long intensive, we will examine alignment in sitting, standing, bending, walking, and sleeping. You will learn to sense the interplay between muscle tension and bone alignment in all of these activities. Simple, yet profound changes will help you find and keep your “spinefulness”. This class is great for beginners or those ready to take their posture awareness to the next level. Please wear loose comfortable pants to class, i.e. no jeans.
PLEASE NOTE: The Wednesday, July 18th class will be held in Alway M112, and the Saturday, July 21 class will be held from 10:30am – 12:30pm at The Balance Center, 560 Oxford Avenue in Palo Alto.
