Move/Restore is a class focused on mobility and restoration that will work up a sweat!
Incorporating a group of 3-5 multi joint standing, or ground based movements in a circuit, the goal is to move constantly. The steady pace of this low impact class is not fast, but neither is it slow. The focus for this edition of Move/Restore will be the hips, and it is appropriate for folks of varying fitness backgrounds and body types.
We will begin with five minutes of breathwork, bringing awareness to our breathing, and calming our body’s overstimulated stress response. We will then utilize standing joint mobility to activate the hips, release tension, and prepare for the movements to come. Once we are mobilized, we will warm up by doing a round of each movement in our workout, this will familiarize you with the movements and cues, before we apply the pacing and structure. Next, during the body of the workout, we will perform each exercise for 60 seconds, one after the other. Upon completion we will repeat, for the designated number of rounds, with little to no rest (if possible).
