Saturday, February 25 @ 9:00 a.m.
This innovative workshop is the first in a series designed to help women who have felt that they are not able to exercise—especially those who suffer from underlying hip, pelvic or lower back problems. Many ladies with these issues have previously had physical therapy or other treatments, but have reached a plateau short of their desired activity level. Are you unable to progress beyond your prescribed home exercises, or trapped in a cycle of re-injury when you attempt activities you used to enjoy? This workshop will help you to “bridge” beyond your current activity level, and prepare for regular exercise. Combining principles of pelvic physical therapy with the fundamentals of Pilates and yoga, you will be able to enhance and build upon your current movement capabilities. You’ll learn to exercise in a safe and effective way, honor your body, and strategically prepare for regular exercise classes. Leave with “homework” and tips for building your own personal practice. Discover ways to protect your body and prevent further injury, through body awareness. Build core strength, increase your flexibility, and enhance your mood. Bridge the gap from fear of exercise to the joy of mind/body movement! Developed and taught by Marsha Bowman, PT/DPT with Petti Groth, ERYT-500/PMA-CPT.2 hours. $35 or use 3 off your Synergy class package to attend. Register here.
Prerequisites: ability to go up/down stairs to the studio, and ability to get down into the floor and back up.
