STRETCH AND MOBILITY CLASSES

Our unique Stretch & Mobility Classes are gentle classes that includes static and gentle dynamic stretches, mobility exercises and slow movement patterns to help maintain and improve quality range of motion and functional movement around joints in the back, hips, shoulders, neck and extremities.  The purpose of the class is to gently find positions and movements that we might not typically get into during our regular day-to-day activities.  This class aims to reintroduce healthy movement patterns and postures to help counter typical, repetitive or unhealthy postures and activities by improving body awareness and biomechanically sound joint movement.

The 30-Minute Stretch & Mobility is offered on Mondays & Thursdays after the morning Erg Spin classes (11am – noon) at the SMUS Indoor Rowing facility on Shelbourne at Derby.  We start this short version of the class at noon and while participation in the erg spin class is not required, it is recommended to arrive to the stretch class a little bit warm, so your body will be more ready and willing to move with ease. 

Perhaps this is a good opportunity to walk to the class or arrive a bit early to allow yourself time to move a bit before we get started!  Please bring your own mat to the class. A full-sized towel is recommended if you need support for seated or lying positions.

The 60-Minute Stretch & Mobility is due to start soon at the Commonwealth Place.  It follows a similar format and focus to the 30-Minute class, however mats are provided on site.  This longer class allows for clients to explore increasingly indepth exercises and postures to get more benefit. 

The feedback has been that the class is very relaxing and that hour flies by.  If you need support for the seated or lying positions, please bring your own full-sized towel.  Drop-in spaces are available on a class-by-class basis.
