Restorative Exercise™ is a health promoting movement program designed to help you learn to move your body the way it was designed, in a biologically optimal way. It is an exercise program that will teach you how to move with your body aligned in order to restore your muscles to their appropriate length, improve your circulation, minimize wear and tear on your joints, and repair damage to your entire body.
Restorative exercise™ is an alignment based movement program developed by biomechanist, Katy Bowman. Restorative Exercise™ was created using principles from biology, geometry, physics, engineering and applying them to the human body. Each exercise was designed to support the natural function of the body, and to help you develop the strength and flexibility which is vital to your health.
By learning how to incorporate natural human movement into your daily life, you can start decreasing your pain and increasing your health today. Restorative Exercise can help you:
• Move without pain
• Reduce wear and tear on joints
• Recover from injury or surgery
• Develop stronger bones
• Achieve a healthy body weight
• Increase overall wellbeing
• Improve core stability
Restorative Exercise™ is low impact movement. Effective for all fitness levels, the classes focus on alignment, flexibility, mobility and the refinement of motor skills to enhance blood flow, timing and strength.
Restorative Exercise™ classes are held every Wednesday from 5:30-6:30 pm. Starting in November we will offer an additional class on Thursdays from 2-3pm. Classes require the use of props (exercise kit): yoga block, stretching strap, resistance band, tennis ball, 1/2 foam roll. You can purchase the exercise kit for $30 from the instructor on the day of class.
