On the Move
Tuesdays 7:00-8:30 am* (General classes)

Starting 15th January 2020

This class is literally on the move! We will be walking for a bulk of the class (because we all need to walk more!) but will stop along the way to utilise movement opportunities that the terrain offers in the moment. A portion of the class will be doing some corrective exercises as well as learning about gait mechanics and other combined natural movements.

Park benches, hills, logs, rocks, trees, beach, textures, playgrounds- each week will be different. All activities are voluntary and scalable for every body.

Gait Basics series- is a series of classes focused specifically on the mechanics and exercises for walking well. This series is repeated each season. So if you missed a session last season- pick it up again next time around. Topics include walking alignment, using your butt, saving your knees, stairs, hills, shoes, feet and texture, upper body.

General Class- incorporates the skills we were introduced to in the Gait Basics series and includes various strengthening and stretching exercises, movement challenges and upper body exercises. An all-round walking and exercise class in the fresh air with useful movement tips to add extra movement nutrition to your life.

Prerequisite is the ability to walk 5 km ( about 1- 1/4 hours) and a sense of fun and adventure.

Depending on the time and day chosen- There is the possibility to finish with a cuppa or BYO breakfast. A great start to the day!

Natural Moves- Core, Pelvis and Lower Back
Fridays 9:15-10:15am 6-week series
Starting 17th January 2020

This class series follows on from the core, pelvis and lower back exercises from last season but is focused on exploring how to move beyond exercises and weave more diverse and dynamic natural human movements into the rest of the day.

No worries if you missed out on last season's classes as we will
layer the exercises into these more dynamic everyday movements.

We will explore the form of natural human movements like lifting, carrying, squatting, ground movements and more. We will work out which parts are more difficult for you, show you how to bolster these to meet you where your body is currently at and give you feedback where you could spend more time or attention with your exercises to reclaim your movement abilities.

The time you spend outside an exercise class has the most impact on your health. Come and explore how you can add more movement to non-exercise time with these natural moves.

If you feel uncertain whether this class is for you- please contact me and we can talk it through.

If you haven't attended any previous series or introductory classes before then you might like to join up for the *Free 6-week online Alignment Essentials: Introductory Programme for background to this approach. Private link will be given on the first session.

Alternatively you could book a private session to catch up on the alignment essentials and the reference system we use so you can be more mindful about working within your current parameters. This private session could be shared with others also.

Bookings preferred. Some of the class may take place outside utilising natural features nearby. This is weather dependent.
