KINSTRETCH: MOBILITY 

Kinstretch is a movement enhancement system that was developed by Dr. Andreo Spina, founder of Functional Range Systems. It develops maximum body control, flexibility, and usable range of motion. It is currently used by many professional basketball, football, baseball, hockey, soccer, and MMA athletes/teams. 

In Yin Kinstretch (Yin Kin), we aim to begin the body's first waking hours in a gentle mobility practice that incorporates breathwork, meditation, and "holding" positions for deeper relaxation of the soft tissue, and an incredible experience for the nervous system. This class will start your day feeling calm, melty in the joints, and relaxed in the mind.

It's currently being offered at 7 am on Tues/Thurs.

FOUNDATIONAL STRENGTH

This class is an all levels class aimed to meet you at your starting point in mastering your body's weight. Utilizing principles that put joint health at the forefront of our training goals, we safely progress you towards multiple strength skills from any start point THROUGH COMPONENT TRAINING (strength training for all of the major joints). Throughout this process we are slowly adapting your posterior and anterior chain from your body's starting point. Our strength for movement training system is based upon scientific principals, research, and reliable time tested methods so we can guarantee safe and effective tissue adaptation. We want to give you a strength that you own.

In this class you will make improvements in your ability to push and pull both horizontally and vertically, hinge/thrust/curl, squat (in various ways), and develop abdominal/upper back tissue in ways that stabilize and move the spine. You will also build strength in the tissue that generates spinal, hip, and shoulder rotation. Overall, your body will gain the priming and foundational strength necessary to progress within your movement practice, in whatever goal you seek.

It is currently being offered at 5:30 pm on Wednesdays.

Capoeira is an afro-brazilian martial art that blends elements of dance into a fight and a system of self-preservation. Sometimes it can be played as a game and other times like a real fight. Beauty and balance are essential. New practitioners of the art will learn spatial awareness and rhythm. Those who are movers will learn how to move better. Capoeira is problem solving with background music. Get ready for a full body workout and an awakening of the senses.

This class currently meets on Tues/Thurs at 5:30 pm.

Jungle Movement is a play-based kids program that gives our younger community access to a space and friendship circle where they learn how to move with agility, flexibility, and strength! We know that now is a time where it is most important to hold space for children to connect, move their bodies, and PLAY! Within this 1 hour class, your young-one will gain basic gymnastic skills, movement skills (like crawling, pushing, pulling, swinging, hanging), yogic skills (like flexibility and meditation), and some basic self defense (like jiu jitsu).
Join us for a structured program that takes a well rounded approach towards what children need to be developing into a happy healthy powerful human!

MOVEMENT FLOW 101

This class is aimed to give adults the opportunity to learn new movement patterns, movements that make getting up and down from the floor more fluid, accessible, and pain free. It is a one hour group class that gives space for the study of patterns so students learn and engage along the way. We will not only gain new movement capacity for all bodies but also discover what capacity we currently have. It gives one a more developed brain/body connection, coordination, proprioception, flexibility, mobility, agility, and resiliency in compromising positions. This is an all levels class but do feel free to reach out to the teacher if any special injury, health condition, or history is a part of your body's prerequisites.
