They are appropriate for all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
The majority of our workhsops are helpful and appropriate for most anyone. The usual age range is from ten years old to seventy years young. Some participants are not very fit and so come to start getting back into shape again, while others are serious athletes who want to increase strength and flexibility.
Most people have no prior training or experience. Yet yoga, pilates and strength trainers often come to expand their knowledge base.
If a workshop requires previous experience or expertise, it will be clearly stated in the description.
They don't require you to own any fancy equipment.
Though we do recommend that you bring a yoga mat and yoga strap (available at stores like Target or Whole Foods) and a big towel, if you don't have these we will provide them for you. And you can buy any of these from us after the workshop so you can start stretching right away at home.
They include lots of physical activity, but you work at your own pace.
All of our workshops include lots of physical student participation. That's the best way to really learn a physical concept like stretching. So expect to get a good workout and maybe even sweat. However, the instructors will work with you and encourage you to work at your own comfortable pace.
During a typical workshop, some people take breaks every five minutes while others are sweating up a storm and hardly ever stop. People are that different.
We recommend wearing comfortable workout clothing.
Since you will be doing physical exercise, wear or bring appropriate clothing. You can change on site. Shorts and a tee shirt are fine, but some people wear jogging suits or tights. We recommend many layers of clothing, like a tee shirt under long sleeves, since the room may start out cold but then warm up during the workshop. You can be in socks or bare feet.
There are handouts to take home with you and practice.
Our goal is that you experience an immediate and obviouse increase in flexbility during the workshop. But we also want you to keep stretching once you get home so that you continue to increase your flexibility. To make this easy, we send you home with handouts of all the concepts that were covered in the workshop.
We prefer that you arrive early so we can begin on time.
We ask that you arrive about a half-hour earlier than the workhop start time. That will allow you to register, receive handouts and equipment, settle into your place, and use the bathrooms before we start.
Expect to have fun and feel really relaxed at the end.
Although we think that stretching is serious business, joy is the ultimate purpose of life. And so we stress fun and enjoyment in all of our workshops. We encourage you to really apply yourself during the workshop and work to the best of your ability, but we also do our best to make it a fun and joyful experience. And we always end with a guided sensory relaxation, so that you feel relaxed and loose when you leave.
