    Breena Maggio
    Description:
    This class will use the “Waitress/Waiter” exercise to evaluate the external rotation of your shoulders. Lots of chest opening, shoulder mobility, and scapular stabilization.
    Equipment Needed:
    Block, Bolster, Half Dome, Blanket, Yellow Tube with handles and an attachment point.
    Note: We lost the last couple minutes of the video, so here’s basically what we did: finish the unwinding, add in wide scapulae, then re-check your external rotation in the Waitress. Voilá! Amazing right?

    Breena Maggio
    Description:
    Foot mobility and ankle range of motion are important for walking on a variety of terrain and inclines. Lack of dorsiflexion of the ankle and foot immobility can contribute to foot, ankle, knee, and hip issues…cuz it’s all connected. So let’s get those pieces loosened up!
    Equipment Needed:
    Half Dome, Strap, YTU or Tennis Ball

  • Instructor:
    Breena Maggio
    Description:
    Let’s go thru a multitude of variations on the Figure 4, from floor to seated/bolstered to standing. Groovy hip opening and lateral hip strength work.
    Equipment Needed:
    Bolster, 1/2 Dome, maybe a block, blanket, chair, counter

  • Instructor:
    Breena Maggio
    Description:
    Really focusing on motion AT the shoulder joint (versus movement OF the shoulder joint) we’ll look at not only the passive range of motion, but also the strength to move about the joint, and opening up the musculature that might be inhibiting some of the motion.
    Equipment Needed:
    Half Dome, (2) Blocks, Blanket, YTU balls (or tennis balls or pinkie balls)

  • Instructor:
    Tim Harris
    Description:
    Using breath and continuity of movement, you will be led through a series of exercises focusing especially on the feet, spine, hips, and shoulders (ya, it’s pretty much everything).
    Equipment Needed:
    Maybe a Half Dome, Block, or other bolster item
    * Note: This class may challenge you a bit, so transition carefully and work within YOUR boundaries. If you have a hip or knee replacement, you may need to take extra care and modify or skip some of the movements on that side.

    Description:
    Another flow series! Using breath and continuity of movement, you will be led through a series of exercises focusing on external rotation, pelvic list, and balance. Note: At the beginning of the Bosu section, you can use a bolster, stacked pillows or blankets, or your block, to place your knee on. During the two-legged balance portion, if you do not have a Bosu, you can use an inflatable balance disk or 2 half domes flat side up…or just do single leg balance on your half dome (flat side up). Take extra care if attempting the stand on the Bosu flat side up- sometimes a friend’s hand is helpful for getting on and off.
    Equipment Needed:
    Half Dome, Block, maybe a Bosu or inflatable balance disk (if you have one. If not, your half dome, flat side up, will work just fine.)
    *The video “Note” demonstrates use of the balance disk.

  • Instructor:
    Joan Allen
    Description:
    A full core workout- active, reflexive, stretching, relaxing (just a little). This class will get your core moving in ways it might never have!
    Equipment Needed:
    Large Exercise Ball, BOSU (or Bolster), Blanket, Half Dome, Block, Red Squishy Ball

  • Instructor:
    Breena Maggio
    Description:
    A reprise of the anti-hyperkyphosis series with a look at not only mobilizing the t-spine (thoracic spine) but also being more aware of our posture throughout the day to create new adaptations for the spine and supporting musculature. Just can’t get enough of this stuff!
    Equipment Needed:
    Bolster, Blanket, Half Dome

  • Instructor:
    Breena Maggio
    Description:
    The feet are our foundation. And they are tight (for most of us). Tight feet affect everything that sits on top of them. We’ll spend some quality time restoring some of the length to the muscles of the feet and lower legs.
    Equipment Needed:
    1/2 Dome, Tennis Ball (or therapy or YTU ball), maybe a Blanket, maybe a Bolster

  • Instructor:
    Breena Maggio
    Description:
    Many of will find that once the femur is neutral (neutral kneepits), this reveals the tension in our feet. We will work on restoring mobility within the foot so that by the end of this class, your ability to evert the forefoot (getting the ball of your foot flat on the ground, or closer to it) will be better.
    Equipment Needed:
    Bolster, Half Dome, Strap, YTU ball or tennis ball…

  • Instructor:
    Breena Maggio
    Description:
    This class will involve gentle exercises to help improve mobility of the pelvic joints- hips and lumbar spine.
    Equipment Needed:
    Bolster, Half Dome, Red Squishy Ball, (2) Straps
