About this class

Ground Control is built on the principles of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stability and Neuroplasticity. The class was adapted into this 60min format by MVMTLAB owner, chiropractor & ex-pro football player Dr. Jeff Almon. Ground Control class changes the way your brain analyses pain inputs and signals, essentially reprogramming your neuromuscular system and thus your movement patterns. Through various isometric holds based on infant movement patterns, you will challenge your muscles and your sensory motor control to break down old protective patterns, reduce pain, increase body awareness, build core strength, and improve performance. This class serves as prehab, rehab and functional meditation all at once! Everyone is welcome, athlete or not, injured or not.

Ground Control: Functional Meditation & Injury Rehab with Cypress
A must-try class. Cypress was wonderful. She gave great instruction and was so knowledgeable and encouraging!
Ground Control: Functional Meditation & Injury Rehab with Adrian
You hold 3-5 poses, some static and some dynamic, over the course of an hour. Very personalized attention and care. It was my first time at the studio and Adrian was very welcoming. He gave me the spiel and I didnt feel intimidated at all by the newness of what I would be doing. Highly recommend! Will be back!

Really interesting! Static holds, really reset the system. Challenging in a different way, mentally and physically.

Loved the body awareness this created for me. Holding postures for long periods of time is much more intense than I would have thought. thoroughly enjoy this new understanding, will be back!

Ground Control: Functional Meditation & Injury Rehab with Tamsen
A body-awareness/active meditation class with a chiropractor. You hold ~3 poses for 15-20 minutes, and observe how your body adjusts. Cool!
