Mmmove™

This workshop-style class combines body-work type mobilities with fascial self-massage release and fascial movement, functional movement, and muscle and nerve releases.

One great concept = three classes

The Concept:

Bring techniques and tools to release muscle spasm, and mobilise nerves; movements to mobilise joints and tissue; and functional movement into a class. This class will help all to move better – whether you have a sedentary job, or ask a lot of your body by training hard. Train smarter, get better results.

The Classes:

Mmmove™ A fun class combining self-massage (prickle ball/foam roller), releases, mobility (micro and macro) and movement (functional, diverse, strengthening)

Mmmove™ to Mobilise Massage, releases, mobility and stretch Get better results by releasing muscle spasm and tension before your stretch

Mmmove™ to Improve Release muscle spasm and then work the inhibited muscle. Get great results

This is a very versatile concept as it fits well within a studio timetable but could just as easily be delivered by PTs on the gym floor. With it’s muscle and nerve releases to promote better recruitment of inhibited muscles, it’s core recruitment, mobility and stretch; it is a worthy alternative to Pilates or Yoga classes

Teach your clients how to look after themselves, reduce the chance of injury, get better results

Invaluable to the Personal Trainer or Therapist who wants to get their client moving better; great on the studio timetable.

Flow Movement Meditation™

A flowing moving meditation class.    Classes can be more relaxing or invigorating.

Participants are encouraged to connect to themselves and work on better movement throughout the class.   

We encourage kindness to ourselves, and kindness to others. 

There is no competition.  No just switching off and just following the instructor.  Every participant is encouraged to think and feel for themselves, and to consider what they need from the session. 

We take time to explore precise movements.  The emphasis throughout the class is on focused, mindful movement; and in revelling in the joy of our movement.

Learn how to recognise your client's restrictions and understand how to help them

Develop your verbal teaching skills 

Release your mind and body as you teach - benefits you as well as your clients

A great alternative to Pilates or Yoga, Flow Movement Meditation™ combines stillness of the mind whilst moving the body

A mind/body class for Level 2 studio instructors
