MON 06.02.14. Restorative Yoga Class at 7:00pm

Is there one more round? Killed It.

Restorative Yoga

Monday's at 7pm in the Front Room.
aboutRestorative Yoga, taught by Monica Miller, is a class designed to support proper functioning of the muscles, tissues, and joints needed for optimal athletic performance. Chronic tension and repeated tightening reduces range of motion, leading to poor posture, improper breathing, reduced mobility, and injury.

This class begins with a series of continuous postures, integrating breath and alignment, to increase flexibility in tight muscles and improve mobility, particularly in the spine. The class ends with long-held postures to stimulate hydration in your connective tissues, addressing joint range of motion limitations and to balance the nervous system. The class concludes with mind-training practices designed to teach you to activate your rest response. Optimal performance requires both stressing the body and allowing time for rest & recovery.

Join us after your 6pm WOD or reserve Monday nights at 7pm for restorative yoga.
