Learn how to achieve long term pain relief and improved muscular functionby “reprogramming” your muscles to lengthen and relax as you regain muscle sensation and control. These classes work on releasing and activating various fascia lines (blue bands in above image) from the feet through the torso and neck.
The 10:30 to 11:45 AM classes will focus on elements of the "Myth of Aging" series by Thomas Hanna in addition to ball work on your feet. This series is designed to give your body the reminders it needs to remain flexible and agile as you age.
The 5:30 to 6:45 PM classes will utilize soft foam rollers under our torsos and hips in addition to ball work on your feet. This class enhances core strength while working with balance.
Each class uses gentle and slow movements to reactivate fascia and we also work on re-patterning our standing and walking habits for more cohesive movement.
TESTIMONIAL: "From the very first session, I experienced positive shifts in my body with a sense of deeper body interconnectedness during the gentle movements and Kimmer's well-explained guidance. Afterwards, both my body and mind felt relaxed yet energized, released and restored. As a former yoga instructor, I believe these somatic exercises are an excellent adjunct to my own personal yoga practice and look forward to incorporating them into daily life as well. I would recommend it to anyone looking to improve her/his ease of movement, body awareness and balanced well-being. Thanks, Kimmer!" Yana V.
