Functional Flexibility with Mary Lowman
Thursdays 7 pm.
Learn to improve your range of motion and flexibility. We will use static, active, and dynamic stretches to lengthen and activate our muscles. These movements are beneficial for all levels, whether you can bend yourself into a pretzel or you just wish to be able to touch your toes. During class we will utilize our whole body and breath to find release and control in our movements. You will leave class feeling open and fluid, also knowing exercises you can do at home during TV commercials and or when you’re getting out of your car.
Mary’s students appreciate that she knowledgeable and very observant, giving them lots of personalized suggestions for alignment and more effective movement.
