FOUNDATION TRAINING - A 6 WEEK PROGRESSIVE SERIES With DR. MATT WIEST D.C.
Foundation Training is a simple and effective corrective exercise modality that brings the body to its full potential by anchoring the pelvis, decompressing the spine and integrating muscle chains. It's a re-wiring of the poor patterns ingrained in our bodies over a lifetime that were causing pain, deterioration and inefficiency. It's a way for your body to feel really, really good. 

There are many nuances to the program that work to realign and activate the whole body. Foundation Training trains you to be strong in proper posture with proper movement patterns so that strong, pain-free movement becomes natural and normal. These movements are not a replacement for anything else, rather a system that you can layer onto any activity you do whether that is Pilates, Yoga, Hiking, playing with your kids or sitting a desk. When the body moves well, it feels well!

Tuesday's starting October 17th through November 21st, at 7pm & 8 pm. The 7pm course is sold out. 8pm course still has openings. Only 10 students per time slot. This workshop is 6 Sessions for $180, to sign up, log in, then click on the Workshops tab on the website . Suitable for Reformer 1 & 2 clients.
GUEST SPEAKER, DR. YVETTE ERASMUS PRESENTS - TRANSFORMING JUDGEMENTS
Please join us Wednesday, October 25, 7-8 pm, to explore the Anatomy of Compassion and learn some practical mindfulness, somatic and communication tools and strategies for increasing your self acceptance, self-kindness and a sense of common humanity with others.  

Whenever we’re trapped in self-judgment, our first and wisest step towards freedom is to develop compassion for ourselves. 

  • If we’ve injured someone and are embroiled in guilt and self-recrimination, compassion for ourselves allows us to find a wise and healing way to make amends. 
  • If we’re drowning in grief or sorrow, arousing compassion helps us remember the love and connection in our life. 
  • Rather than pushing them away, we free ourselves by holding our hurting places with the unconditional tenderness of compassion

Dr. Yvette Erasmus is an internationally experienced teacher, coach and therapist. She specializes in compassion based strategies that support people in transforming relationships within themselves and between each other. You will enjoy this class as she integrates a unique blend of humor and wisdom, openness and honesty and a deep generosity of self and spirit. 

Book this online just like you book a class, or call the studio and we can enroll you.
