Zoom Classic Nia + Myofascial Release Stretching
August 28 (Friday) at 9:00 am (GMT-07:00)
1 hour 30 minutes
Join Nia Black Belt and holistic physical therapist Rachael R. Resch for a 20-minute rockin' Classic Nia practice, followed by 45 minutes of gentle, myofascial release stretching. This class is great for relieving stress, realigning soft tissue and joints, and rejuvenating your body and your spirit.
Props: If you like props when you stretch, please have them on hand - for example, yoga mat, belt, one or two pillows, towel or blanket, one or two 5-lb weights to open your hip joints, a book to stretch the fingers. It also helps to have a sweatshirt to keep the body warm.
Myofascial stretching is a self-treatment technique that results in permanent re-lengthening of shortened, bound-down connective tissue and has the capacity to dramatically improve health and quality of life.
Schmoozing: You're invited to a little pre-class schmoozing around 8:50 am before class begins at 9:00. You're welcome to hang out a little after class and schmooze as well.
You're welcome to hang out a little after class and schmooze as well. We are stronger together.
