There’s a common saying in the movement world: “move it or lose it”. Yet modern life does not provide most of us with the quantity and variety of movement our bodies need to stay healthy and resilient. This workshop will teach you simple ways to fill in your movement “gaps” throughout your work day, focusing on joint mobility and common areas of discomfort. Think of it as a maintenance tune-up for your most important vehicle, your body!
- Be able to respond to physical discomfort with both mindful awareness and tangible movement skills to help you feel better in the moment
- Understand more about your body's biomechanical movement needs, including joint rotation and common misalignments
- Understand the basics of how the nervous system works in order to better respond to stress and how it manifests in the physical body
