Form: Level 1 Foundations with Alicia Demetropolis and Libby Scofield

FORM, an Aligned Body Series

Foundational, Observational, Restorative Movement 

A functional body has both yield (flexibility) and strength (force generation), come and create your sustainable body here. This education and skills based series of classes is aimed at increasing functional flexibility, balance, strength and proprioception through alignment, stretching, and strengthening movements. In these mindful movement classes you will gain a new sense of ownership of your body and movements and learn skills to decrease pain, increase self-efficacy and acquire a new sense of control over your body and movement patterns. As you integrate the alignment points and basic skills you will create greater balance, flexibility, coordination and strength. All classes will be floor/mat based and shoe-less, but accommodation can be made to include those who need to work seated and in foot-wear. Learn to Mind your Body! 

Level 1. Foundations: This is a mat based class, but will have seated components and can accommodate those who wish to work seated. We will work on regaining lost ranges of motion and flexibility of hands, feet, neck, spine, and hips. The exercises will promote better body awareness, better balance, greater understanding of your current physical boundaries and how to safely work through them, in addition to better flexibility and strength.  Great for those graduating out of physical therapy, recovering from illness or injury or those interested in creating better balance, range of motion, and fundamental strength. Basic alignment and healthy joint position will be taught as well as functional, real life skills.
