DAY 1 – FRIDAY, June 7th RECOVER Workshops 

((Upper and Lower Body Focused Workshops – See schedule below))
 

Come learn the best self-care techniques that will also help in increasing flexibility! Recovery is one of the most overlooked parts of training programs. Experience the positive impact and see what can happen when you are PROACTIVE with Recovery techniques as opposed to REACTIVE. 

 

Be kind to your body and know that becoming stronger and preventing injury all happen when proper recovery techniques are integrated! Everyone in attendance will learn recovery techniques to help keep their bodies happy, more flexible, and free of restrictions with the use of Mobility Peanuts, Floss Compression bands (aka voodoo bands), Rockballs and Pinky ball myofascial release/self-massage techniques. Floss Compression “voodoo” band mobilizations help tendinitis, strains, sprains, fascial tension, swelling, flexibility and more. The workshops will each end with a brief tutorial on utilizing RockTape/Kinesio-Taping techniques to further aid in injury treatment and prevention. Train hard and recover harder, your body will thank you!

 

All tools used in the workshop will be supplied for use at the workshop and will also available for purchase at the end of each workshop.

 

* We highly encourage students to attend both portions of each day workshop in order to maximize your benefits! All tools used in the workshop will be supplied for use at the workshop and will also available for purchase at the end of each workshop.

 

RECOVER – UPPER BODY – Friday, June 7th
1:30pm - 3pm

--->> Your shoulders and back are crying for some recovery to ensure that you can continue handstand training to your heart's content!

3:30pm - 5pm

--->> Your ankles get tweaked or you're dealing with plantar fasciitis from hiking, running, or your love of heels!
 
--->> Your lower half needs some TLC.

DAY 2 – SUNDAY, June 9th RELEASE Workshops  

((Upper and Lower Body Focused Workshops – See schedule below))

 

Take ownership of your body’s needs and learn the best techniques to help you keep moving, recovering well, staying injury free, and most importantly, feeling great! Flexibility is so much more than simply stretching. You can restore full range of motion to muscles and joints with banded movement mobilizations that aid in resetting the body into more stable and efficient positions, decreasing muscle and joint pain, improving neuromuscular mechanics, and preparing the muscles and nervous system for upcoming training demands. 

 

Learn to restore freedom and ease of movement while promoting circulation and muscle relaxation, and decreasing muscle soreness and stiffness. Come learn how to safely integrate banded movement mobilizations to your movement practice with detailed instructions for performing banded movement mobilizations for the entire body. Learn to increase your flexibility, resolve movement restrictions, and correct imbalances in your body. 

 

The Joint Capsule is perhaps the least discussed and understood flexibility component that can ultimately affect healthy joint range of motion and tissue health. Although it might not receive much attention, the joint capsule is one of the most important components to resolving movement restrictions. Extra tension is needed to get a stretch through the sac of tissue that makes up the joint capsule. To effect change within the joint capsule, we need to create space within the joint. We accomplish this by creating a banded movement mobilization using a resistance band that is generally used for assisted pull-ups. 

 

Most stretching techniques focus on stretching isolated, individual muscles. While this approach does have success in some cases, it often fails to provide lasting results. Restricted range of motion in a joint results in a restricted range of motion in the muscle as well. Restriction in one joint capsule can therefore lead to restrictions and compensations in other parts of the body. Learning how to restore and gain joint flexibility with Bands is time well invested in avoiding injuries from which recovery can take weeks and which may force extended rest. 

 

Benefits of Banded Movement Mobilizations include:

 

•Increases flexibility
•Aids in resetting the body into more stable and efficient positions
•Decreases muscle and joint pain
•Improves neuromuscular mechanics
•Prepares the tissue and nervous system for upcoming training demands
•Improves joint mobility
•Restores full range of motion to muscles and joints
•Can be used alone for flexibility training and workout recovery
•Decreases muscle soreness and stiffness
•Promotes circulation and muscle relaxation
•Restores freedom and ease of movement

* We highly encourage students to attend both portions of each day workshop in order to maximize your benefits! All tools used in the workshop will be supplied for use at the workshop and will also available for purchase at the end of each workshop.

>>>>> BREAK: 3pm - 3:30pm
RELEASE – LOWER BODY – Sunday, June 9th
3:30pm - 5pm
Lower Body RELEASE will focus on gaining flexibility in the Hip Flexors, Quads, Hip Rotators, Hamstrings, Knees, and Ankles. Have an effect on your joint capsule and all surrounding tissues that aid squats, front splits, lunges, middle splits, deadlifts, and more!
