FIT for Posture
at FIT on Main personal training gym
207 E. Main Street
Carrboro, NC 27510
Saturday January 25, 10:30-12:30
In this 2 hour workshop, you will learn how to improve posture through techniques to relieve muscular tension and pain that you can perform yourself. With simple exercises to strengthen muscles that support the core and posture and with gentle stretches and techniques to relax muscles that are typically tight or tense, you can find a muscular balance of support and flexibility. You will leave with the knowledge and tools to diminish pain and tension associated with poor posture and stop or reverse progression of muscular imbalances that can contribute to postural changes.
Registration recommended as space is limited.

Get off your wrists! This warming flow class takes you through challenging sequences that keep you off your wrists, protecting your elbows, shoulders, and neck. This workshop is for those of us who like challenging flow sequences without stress on the wrists and shoulders. A former swimmer and lover of sun salutations and power flow yoga, Ruth experienced shoulder pain and stability issues after breast cancer treatment.
