A 6-week Series with Shannon Rude
October 13 – November 17
This 6-week series will introduce you to a unique, whole-body approach to movement and wellness. You will learn the basics of Restorative Exercise, a type of movement therapy created by biomechanist and Nutritious Movement™ founder Katy Bowman.
Each week we will focus on a different area 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 who wants to learn to move better, while experiencing less pain, injury, and wear-and-tear on the body. All ability levels are welcome, as each of the exercises and alignment recommendations are highly modifiable.
- Week 1 - Lateral hips & more
- Week 2 - Pelvic floor & core
- Week 3 - Neck & thoracic spine
- Week 4 - Feet & hands (and hips & shoulders)
- Week 5 - Chest & shoulder opening
- Week 6 - Whole body recap
Class size is limited to 10 students to ensure that everyone receives plenty of individual feedback.
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.
