On the Move (12:00 Noon Fridays)
This class is literally on the move! We will be walking for the bulk of the class (because we all need to walk more) but will stop along the way to utilise movement opportunities that the terrain offers in the moment. A portion of the class will be doing some corrective exercises as well as learning about gait mechanics and other combined natural movements.
Park benches, hills, logs, rocks, trees, beach, textures, playgrounds- each week will be different. All activities are voluntary and scalable for every body.
