Release and Restore - The Myofascial Mobilisation Class

Hosted by: Kristin Loeer
Time & date: 13th December at 18:30 to 20:00
Hosted at: The Body Matters, Business Land, 8 Madeira Ave, Southend on Sea, SS9 3EB
Price: £15pp

This popular class will mobilise and relax your socks off. You will be guided through some simple breathing and relaxation exercises to calm your system, find focus and tune into the state of your connective tissue. We often believe our muscles to be tight and try to stretch them off. Yet we do not seem to get much effect from all the stretching. Most of the time it is actually the fascia that our muscles are wrapped up in that is tight and inflexible and makes us feel stiff, achy and immobile. This class will take you through a range of release and mobilisation exercises that will reach and target your connective tissue in ways you never have been able to with conventional stretches and exercises. You will find these movements and releases comfortable, satisfying, relaxing. Afterwards, you will feel powerfully different as you experience a much healthier state of your connective tissue all around and through your body. Everyone is welcome. 

If you suffer from injuries or health conditions contact Kristin for advice if this class is suitable for you.

Testimonials from previous classes:

"Thank you very much again for your wonderful class on Friday. I think I got more release in those 90 minutes than from any other therapy session over the last 3 years. So I'm very keen to return." Gerald H.

"I feel great after the workshop. I had a very stiff shoulder and hip before and they are both much better. Even having gone to a gig last night and standing for hours which usually means a very painful hip the following day!" Kate K.

Put a Spring in your Step! A Walking Running Workshop

Hosted by: Kristin Loeer
Time & date:  7th February 19:15 to 20:45
Hosted at: The Body Matters, Business Land, 8 Madeira Ave, Southend on Sea, SS9 3EB
Price: £15pp

This 90-minute workshop will help you understand the biomechanics involved in the most natural movement we humans do: Walking and Running.

You will gain insight into your very own lower extremity alignment and gait. Then we will go through exercises to improve alignment and ankle and hip mobility. We will also work on accessing the spring-like quality we need in our body in order to move effortlessly, lightly and without wearing out our joints through excessive impact.

If you enjoy walking or running this workshop may give you more understanding of how your body works in this activity and how to optimise your performance. It will also give you many exercises to take away and add to your conditioning program,

This workshop may also be great for you if you would like to walk or run more, but you find it difficult or you keep being held back by repetitive injuries.

This workshop will take place indoors.
