Zoom Live: Age-Defying Therapeutic Stretches
June 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT$10
Connect Your Body With Your Mind.
Improve your balance, relax tense muscles, restore mobility and flexibility, and calm your mind with slowly paced doable exercises done both sitting and standing. This artfully designed series of deceptively simple stretches literally works the musculature of the entire body from head to toe — while requiring a focused mind attentive to the details of each movement. The class is rooted in the dancer’s warmup Finis developed during more than six decades as dancer and teacher that will inspire minor miracles in your body and soul. From young adults through senior citizens and from dance or ballet beginners to athletes to home or office workers to anyone on their feet all day or needing some physical activity, this class is truly for everyone.
11 exercises standing in one spot. 4 exercises sitting on an armless chair or a stool, 1 exercise leaning over the chair or stool. 1 standing exercise that takes 3 steps to the right, then 3 steps to the left. 1 standing exercise that steps forward & back, then you will take circular steps in one spot. All the exercises require space enough to reach your arms sideways, forward, and backward. Ideally (you may have to rearrange your furniture) you have an open space approximately 5 feet by 5 feet so that you can move forward, backward, and sideways.
Dress for ballet or yoga or exercise class. No shoes required. For best results, face a mirror so you can see what you are doing. You will need a firm chair or stool with a sturdy seat that can bend over and place your hands on to support your weight.
50-60 minutes of exercises
