Pilates for Runners

Saturday 30th Sept / 2pm-5pm

Pilates for Runners Workshop 30/9/17

Join us for a workshop to help lengthen, tone, and strengthen the body from a runners perspective.

We will focus on the areas of the body most needed for a good, strong run, and as such the class will include; activating the main muscle groups in the legs and hips to support the joints, releasing tightness in the upper body to allow for deeper breathing during your run, exercises to help correct misalignment issues that may cause pain or discomfort whilst running, and plenty of stretching!

You do not need to be an expert in Pilates to take part, as all exercises will be modified from beginner level through to advanced as needed.

We will use some small equipment but all exercises can be modified for home practice!

Please wear comfortable loose fitting clothing (leggings are fine, but you may be too cool in shorts), and bring an extra top layer in case you get cool during the stretching sessions in class.

We will ask you to fill out a questionnaire prior to attending this workshop so that we can tailor the workshop appropriately in advance

Postural Alignment

Sunday 11th June / 2pm-5pm

Postural Alignment 11/6/17

Do you have 'bad' posture ? What is 'good' posture anyway ?

A Postural Alignment Workshop with Monica Burr (Massage Therapist and former professional dancer)

This Workshop will focus on learning what 'good' posture means - what it looks and feels like. Learn exercises to find, nurture and strengthen your fluid body around a balancing and well aligned bony structure.

A healthy posture or body alignment can help with balance and flexibility, reduce tension and stress, help deal with ongoing pain such as headaches and back pain and aid recovery after surgery or injury.

So if you have niggly back pain, are wondering how to hold your head your neck when doing activities or just want to understand your body a little better come along to this workshop.

Recommendations for EnergyFlowFitness Workshops

 

"We completed the postural workshop and took such a lot of useful and useable corrective knowledge away with us. It was fascinating to learn about the technique and very satisfying for me because it helped my daughter who is constantly seated while studying , much like myself in my role at school. Mostly though, it struck me what an amazingly holistic cascade of knowledge Sarah and her team facilitate for us. We were stoked...Totally inspired...And ironed out !!!

Xx Wonderful"
