How could rubbing a piece of foam on your leg do so much good? Well, foam rolling is a form of self-myofascial release and helps improve your muscles’ range of motion, boost blood circulation, and break down tightness or knots in your muscles… Nice! Plus, it’s a perfect way to begin or end your workouts.
This 15 minute foam rolling session for your legs will focus on your quads, hamstrings, hips, glutes, and lower back. So grab your foam roller (or a small ball if you do not have one) and let’s give our muscles some love and respect. Let’s roll.
This quick, yet effective, upper-body release will open up the chest, elongate the neck and back, and unburden the shoulders. It’s perfect for those that are tight from lifting weights, those who sit for long periods of time (think desk job), as well as for those of you that might spend some time hunched over your bike. 🙂 No excuses, it’s 10 minutes! Take care of you.
Grab your TRX straps, and get ready for a well deserved total body stretch. The TRX will allow you to get deep into those stretches and lengthen the muscles, by letting you work in a greater range of motion. We’ll start with the back, legs, and glutes, then we’ll move onto opening up the often missed chest, arms, and shoulders. Go on, hit play – you deserve it.
This stretch and restore includes familiar athletic stretches, and has an emphasis on deep breaths, long holds, and settling into position. This will ensure the full lengthening of the muscles, as well as the loosening of the joints to assist in relaxation and recovery.
This feel good stretch is a special release in my humble opinion. It’s me, Cat, saying, “folks, this bud’s for you.” 🙂
It’s a comprehensive 12 minute stretch and restore that ANY BODY can actually do and not feel inept. Variations are shown for every level. And, the super cool thing is… I’m not the most advanced, so you’ll feel really good about yourself. I target hips, legs and the lower back to loosen you up and just flat out make you feel amazing. Do it after a workout or just whenever you need it. Enjoy team!
In this gravity and wall inspired stretch class, we will facilitate deep hip, glute, back, and hamstring stretching. We start on our back with our legs and buns flush to the wall. Ahhh… it feels awesome. The wall serves as a nurturing and barrier breaking tool, allowing us to work with range of motion habits. I encourage you to try to relax in to each pose as you feel that solid wall support. Of course we’ll work in some more traditional feel good stretches as well, and as always, modifications are encouraged to suit your personal body needs. Time to stretch!
This is the best post spinning stretch ever. We’re doing some different, yet effective, hip and hamstring elongations that will allow you to move freely throughout without stiffness in your hips, back and legs. Sweet right! Join us to see how agile and fluid your limbs can become if you give them just a little love.
This Stretch and Restore session focuses primarily on the lovely lower body. It’s inspired by dance and yoga teachings to get you lengthened, and to reduce the aches and pains in the legs and hips. Ideal for after your spinning sesh! Use modifications as needed!
We all know that stretching your muscles and joints makes you feel better and have less injures, but did you know that it also makes you leaner? True story. This Stretch & Restore class focuses on REALLY releasing your stress-holding muscles and their surrounding joints. Quadriceps, hips, psoas, lower & mid back, and those tight shoulder and chest muscles too. You’ll be sure to walk taller, smoother and with a LOT more comfort once you’re done. Phew!
Heaven awaits in this 20 Minute Stretch & Restore. This class is great for post workout, or anytime you just know you need to give your body some extra love. The legs get a great stretch, and there’s a fabulous focus on opening the hips, which can rehab and relax the back. The hips can hold quite a bit of tension and emotional distress. When we devote energy in to them we can release and let go of what’s not serving us. Enjoy!
A perfect 5 minute stretch for post Spin® / Cycling!
You push it so hard day to day, and that’s great, but treat your body as often as possible with the gift of this 20 minute Stretch & Restore. Loosen up with standing rotations side to side, then we immediately go into a hamstring release. Next lengthen it out with side body stretches. Then move back to the legs with deep quad stretching, into dancer’s pose to open up those hips. Bring it all the way down to the ankles and feet with roll outs to wrap up this feel so good session. Heaven.
