“Come one, come all you Stretch Therapy fans! Here is the date for the six plus hour Posture & Stretch Therapy (PST) workshop at The Pilates Studio of Bellingham…Saturday, November 8, 8:30 a.m. – 2:30-ish p.m.
This workshop is for everyone, whether you have done Stretch Therapy with us or not.
Here’s the lowdown:
Saturday, November 8, 8:30 a.m. – 2:30-ish p.m. (do allow a little wiggle room for running over, which we tend to do).
Cost: $90 (including Washington State sales tax)
Bring water and little snack if you like. We will break for lunch as well.
Wear non-restrictive layered clothing. We strongly recommend wearing a pair of tights under your outer layer to keep your core temperature up (very important).
No refunds or credits extended once payment is made, so please make sure the date works for you. Sorry, no exceptions.
The game plan:
We will cover the hip series (quadriceps, hamstrings, psoas, piriformis); adductors long & short; gastrocnemius & soles, aka calf; ribcage stretches, for example, gate stretch, side bend/quadratus lumborum, supported back bend and/or thoracic extension (“sweet surrender”); the shoulder girdle to include pec minor, biceps, and rotator cuffs; the entire neck series (upper trapezius, scaliness, sub occipitals, and the ever troublesome levator scapula); the feet/ankle series; and the hand/wrists series. The “rod of correction” will most certainly make an appearance for fascia work on the calf, quadriceps, adductors, piriformis. And finally, after all these magical stretches, we will end with your Moment of Zen, approximately thirty minutes of guided relaxation/meditation where you may then integrate the whole experience.
The time will go by much faster than you think. The benefit to doing a long session like this every now and again is the total body experience. Please do not think you have to be in the “athlete” category to do this. This workshop has nothing to with intensity, pain and suffering. It has everything to do with liberation, breathability, movement around joints, education, self-awareness and joy…simple, pure joy.
