April's Theme is RENEWAL
"Did you know over 300 billion new cells are produced by our bodies each day? Talk about a brilliant system of renewal! For me, this is a great reminder that we have 300 billion opportunities each day to renew ourselves and re-create or re-imagine the being we'd like to be.
We are ever evolving, changing, dynamic, and malleable creatures. Take a minute and gift yourself three deep breaths to ponder those cells for a moment. What parts of who you were yesterday do you want to let go of? You're creating space for the new life to emerge! Next, utilize the power of those 300 billion new, vital, and curious cells to envision and support the being you'd like to become. And then give those new cells a big high five! Here's to the being you are becoming, renewing itself again and again and again (times a few hundred billion)." - Jessica Mark
This class will focus on stretching, strengthening and release. We will integrate foam rollers, spikey balls and other props to release the body's tension patterns to utilize our muscular system with more efficiency. Suitable for all levels and those who are comfortable getting up from the floor.
