Recording of introductory session on January 25 is here! Learn how to achieve improvement through movement and techniques aimed at strengthening connection between mind and body from Mitch Raymond, MSPT, CEEAA.* The connection between our brain and muscles is essential to move ourselves without injury. The presentation breaks down how to improve the strength, flexibility, stability, balance, and skill of our bodies through practices that enhance neuromuscular connection and physiologic well being.
The introductory program establishes a foundation for “Mind Over Body” exercise classes starting monthly on February 29 on the second floor of the library. Each class will start with techniques to limber up followed by exercises to work on stability, strength, balance, and exploration of motion. What we do at each exercise session will largely depend on the needs and interests of whoever attends. It is highly recommended that everyone bring a yoga mat. We will work with the library chairs and tables to help with stability. If a great amount of interest develops in these classes we may try to do them with greater frequency, but we will begin these classes on a monthly basis. The first class is free, future classes will be a suggested donation of $10.
