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.

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!

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.

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!
