A Six-week Series with Special Guest Shannon Rude
February 27 – April 3
Restorative Exercise is an alignment-based movement program created by biomechanist and Nutritious Movement™ founder Katy Bowman. Using a unique set of exercises, stretches, and alignment points, Restorative Exercise helps you move better and more mindfully, while experiencing less pain, injury, and wear-and-tear on the body.
Each class in this series will focus on a different region of the body, and by the end of the six weeks you will have mobilized and strengthened every major joint in your body. You will gain a comprehensive overview of how to align your body in order to reap the most benefit from every movement you do, including yoga, exercise, and moving throughout your daily life.
This class is suitable for anyone—from the Restorative Exercise newbie to the advanced practitioner—who wants to learn to move better! All of the exercises, movements, and alignment points are highly modifiable, so you can make them as easy or challenging as you want. Also, each series has a slightly different focus, so no two are quite the same. Regardless of your experience level, you will gain valuable insights into your body and how you move!
A series allows your teacher to teach progressively and to tailor the class, theme or goal as they get to know each individual over time. Staying with one group for several weeks also builds commitment, community, and understanding for both the student and the teacher. Research shows that we learn better, feel discomfort less, and are more optimistic when we feel included in community. Our series classes build that kind of inclusion.
