If you are suffering from low back pain, hip pain, knee pain, or feel like you aren’t firing your muscles properly in your workouts, this is the class for you!
An injury should not completely derail your fitness. There are ways to still achieve a challenging workout while protecting your injury and in this workshop series you will learn how. The goal of this workshop is to prevent and/or rehabilitate a lower body injury while creating a therapeutic type workout. If you find you are modifying a lot of movements in your daily life due to lower body pain, this class will teach you the proper cues to achieve better quality and pain-free movement. You will reap the benefits of these activation and strengthening exercises across all of the movements you perform daily, especially yoga.
Join us for a 4-week glute x core workout series. You will complete a 45–minute workout involving proper glute and core activation, as well as other effective therapeutic exercises. Lead by our Certified Athletic Therapist Megan, you will have experienced eyes guiding you through this workout to ensure you are doing everything right!
We will finish each class with a static stretching sequence to facilitate recovery and improve range of motion. Static stretching consists of longer hold stretches that are done post-exercise. Tightness in the hip flexors, quads, glutes and hamstrings can all contribute to low back, knee and ankle pain and therefore, that is what we will target.
If you have an existing injury and/or pain, there is a way to still maintain your fitness while rehabilitating your injury. Likely your injury has resulted from overuse, weakness, tightness or trauma, and this class will account for that. This workshop will create a safe environment to perform rehabilitative exercises while incorporating a challenging yet effective workout. The strength and flexibility you will achieve in this workshop series will be translated into your other activities of daily living, to ultimately create pain-free and better quality movement.

Shoulder & Wrist Injury Prevention Workout Series
Do you have shoulder or wrist pain? Or reduced range of motion or strength in these joints?
Join us for a 4-week workout series focusing on shoulder and wrist injury prevention. We will combine a variety of strength, mobility and flexibility techniques into a 45-minute therapeutic workout. We will also focus on scapular control and posture to ensure we can help alleviate pain and/or prevent the onset of injury.
The shoulder is the most mobile joint of the body, which is why it is the most susceptible to injury. Our society on the whole has a very forward posture: sitting at our desk, looking at our phone etc. This causes poor posture, tight chest muscles and weak back muscles. This workout series is designed to help correct all of those imbalances to either prevent the onset of injury or help rehab a current injury.
The wrist also takes quite a bit of load throughout our day and in our activities. We use our hands daily in a variety of tasks, and also exercises like push ups and planks, as well as gripping motions can put a lot of stress on our wrists. We will go over some mobility and strengthening exercises for the wrist to help make our daily tasks easier and pain-free.
This workshop will create a safe environment to perform rehabilitative exercises. The strength, flexibility and overall mobility you will achieve from this program will be translated into your other activities to create pain-free and better quality movement.
If you have been working through or ignoring your shoulder and/or wrist pain, this is the class for you!
