The Body Shop Series: Feet, Ankles, & Knees

Mon & Wed | 2/19/2018 – 3/28 2018 | 10:15-11:15 am

6 weeks – 2x per week – $378 

Instructor: Michelle Wittwer | Staff Bio

Foot, ankle and knee pain got you down or keeping you from doing what you love? We have the answer: The Body Shop Series! In this small & focused 6 week workshop that meets 2x per week, you will learn how to:

  • Mobilize and strengthen the feet and ankles to improve their strength, control, and movement.
  • Alleviate imbalances in those areas as well as your hips and low back.

Reinstate movement in areas lost due to injuries or poor movement habits. In order to prevent long term or recurrent problems, we need to move all of our joints in all different ranges of movement. For example, 35% of people who suffer an ankle sprain go on to re-sprain it within one year, often because they have failed to regain full strength, control and mobility around the ankle.

A typical Body Shop class will start with:

  • a gentle mobility warm up,
  • a review of prior concepts,
  • a lesson teaching a new concept and skill,
  • a cool down and review.
This focused small group is limited to 4 participants so that you can get focused, individual attention. It is intended for people who suffer from pain or limited range of motion in those areas but still wants a workout to meet their needs and goals.

(limited to 4 participants, 2 minimum to hold workshop)

Is your balance not what it used to be?  Our sense of balance comes from many things, but our inner ear, or vestibular system, plays a huge role in our ability to balance well. Not addressing your balance and inner ear is ignoring one of your senses that your brain needs to navigate and function well.
Our capacity to balance well can change over time due to a lot of factors.  But just like anything it can change with good input! Whether you are an athlete who wants to improve your performance, or just don’t want to slip on the ice this winter, this workshop is for you.

Join Michelle to learn the skills and drills to improve your balance so that you can continually improve your quality of life!
