Mobility classes and workshops are now available!
Weekly mobility classes and monthly workshops are here! This page will be update as needed, and please note that unless otherwise noted, all equipment will be provided. You are encouraged to bring your own mat and therapy balls should you have them. The Roll Model Method® therapy balls are latex, so if you have an allergy/sensitivity, please plan accordingly.
Yoga Tune Up® combines yoga, corrective exercises and stretching to help identify body blind spots and help you learn to move in the most effective way possible for your body. This is NOT a traditional yoga class, but you will reap the benefits of new movement patterns in this fun and educational class. Roll Model® therapy balls are often included in class.
Roll & Relax is an all therapy balls class using the various size Roll Model® therapy balls (original, Alpha and Coregeous) where the focus will be on self massage and myofascial release. This is a perfect addition to your regular massage schedule to keep the aches and pains of every day life away. *Please note that the therapy balls are latex so if you have an irritation/allergy, please plan accordingly.
LifeStretch is designed to gain flexibility in the body, mind and spirit. This mobility class is a slower paced one but is still beneficial for people of any age and any background. If you are looking for something a little more relaxing, look no further!

Reboot Your Glutes
February 4, 2018 10am-12pm
Did you know that your glutes are the largest muscle group in your body? And they are one of the most underused muscles in your body. Thanks to a lifestyle of sitting (in your car, at your desk, at home), these muscles are not being utilized. Not only is a lack of activation tied to the dreaded ‘ass-nesia’, but it is also a huge contributor to low back pain, sciatica, knee pain and more? Also, when you activate your glutes, you can reap the benefits of improved posture, tighter abdominals and less pain through the entire posterior chain. Join us as we work through each layer of this complex group and work our way to switching from the OFF position to ON in this workshop that is open to all fitness levels. Cost: $45 before 1/20/18, $50 after. Participants will receive a set of original Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls. Additional therapy balls will be available for purchase. Register here or call 248-795-5196 to reserve.
