About this class

You'll discover how to tap into your own mind-body connection to build coordinated strength, balance and power while improving your posture and body mechanics to alleviate any neck or back pain. Classes are 70 min in length and focus on flexibility/foam rolling (10 min.), core activation and co-contraction of stabilizing musculature about the hips and shoulder complex, as well as strengthening in various developmental postures (50-55 min.). You finish with 5-10 minutes of stretching. Incorporated into this, you will also learn how to stop overusing your neck and shoulder musculature to free you from pain and tension in these areas.

Know Your Core—Work Your Core
The class was very useful in helping me understand my core a lot better. I have chronic lower back pain and have a hard time isolating and strengthening it using traditional methods. Clarice helped to correct my form where my lower back wouldn’t be exacerbated and was very attentive to each person in this class. She also took the time to show me the correct form on how I should perform a plank which would actually target my core without hurting anything else. This is a slower class designed to be more technical so don’t expect to “work up a sweat.” Instead take it as the learning opportunity it is for healthier activation of core muscles, stretching, and foam rolling.
