Flex-stability: a Mobility Workshop for Aerialists 8/28/18

Tuesday, August 28st
7pm-9:15pm
$60 per student
**$5 off if you register before 8/14!!**
 

This flex-stability workshop is designed to give you tools for building strong and safe flexibility using fun, active ways to stretch and increase range of motion in your joints. We will start with a warm-up (so important for stretching!), nerve glides/flossing, and utilize lacrosse balls for myofascial release to prepare our tissues for mobility work. Then we will get into specific muscle activation/strengthening exercises and stretches to train our front splits, middle splits, back-bends, and more. We will address all of the main flexibility-limiting structures of the body for each skill and stretch in a smart way that will significantly reduce risk for injury.

PREREQ: All levels are welcome to attend. The ability to do the splits and back-bends is not a prerequisite. The exercises we will be doing are strategically ordered to help to get into these skills, but are also great for general flexibility training in the entire body. Remember, flexibility is not gained overnight; it is a marathon, not a sprint! After this workshop you will have tools to safely explore your flexibility training everyday.
