Back when I was still at my little office on Regency Court I had this idea of one day opening a movement center and offering classes and workshops (never mind the fact that I wasn’t qualified/certified to teach anything). I’ve always joked that I’m a trendsetter ahead of my time; I was stretching people before it was fashionable. I was also eating a paleo diet when everyone would ask “oh, it’s like Atkins?” No. No it’s not. Now I’m looking at getting a jump start on mobility classes, and I am so excited to share them with all of you!
What is mobility to you? Is it getting deeper in your overhead squat at Crossfit? Recovering from the half marathon that you did last weekend quicker than you did your last one? Improving your golf swing? Not limping when you get out of bed in the morning because your plantar fasciitis is flaring up? Moving better in your day to day life?
Mobility. Mobility. Mobility!
To me, it’s all of those things, and that is why I decided on getting certified as a LifeStretch® teacher.
Confession: I got certified as a LifeStretch instructor originally it was more for my own self care and recovery, but I then proceeded to do absolutely nothing with it. NOTHING. I don’t know why, I just wasn’t making the time for it, which is so silly because I am constantly preaching to all of my clients about how good you’ll feel after it. I was showing them moves to do but wasn’t doing them on my own. Until I taught a class at Wisconsin Athletic Club (WAC) and everyone loved it! They came in expecting a yoga class, they had these concerned looks on their faces when I told them we weren’t doing yoga, but after they had a look of pure bliss because they felt so great (and so did I!). LifeStretch comes from the same people who created Fascial Stretch Therapy (and if you’ve had an FST session from me you know how good it feels). Take a look at a segment from the Core 4 on the Floor series:
A little from Dr. Dan, a little from Lisa but always a lot of good stuff!
