If you know me and readers, I think you do, you know I’m chronically all wound up. Physically, mentally I’m prone to run on overdrive until I’m a twitching mess. I like being active. I like running, swimming, lifting, hiking, biking, racing, and generally bouncing off the walls. I don’t think I’m the only one.
In this last year I’ve really found a routine that helps. It’s soothing. Yet because it’s not what I’m inclined towards it’s so easy to skip it. I don’t think I’m the only one who does this either.
So I have a gift. For all the overachieving, type-A, twitchy athletes out there. I present my new class:
Restorative Athletics: Injury Prevention for Active People.
Wednesdays 7am at the Midtown YWCA
6 week sessions – $88 for non-YWCA members.
You can register online or by calling 612-215-4333
We’ll do some:
– Myofascial release with foam rolling and balls.
– Meditation/visualization/breath work for both stress reduction and athletic performance.
– Yin Yoga for deep passive stretching.
– Activating exercises that improve neuromuscular control, alignment, and stability.
