Pain-Free Gardening Workshop

Sunday 7th October 2018

Love to garden but end up in pain? Learn to tend to your body while you tend to your plants.

Join Penny O and a community of fellow gardeners in a beautiful and inspiring Permaculture Forest Garden in the Lud Valley for a day of dynamic movement education.

We will explore the movements of gardening and how to help our bodies accomplish these challenging movements… and stay pain-free!

The day includes
-A comprehensive introduction to Natural Movement concepts.
-Practical movement skills coaching
-Nourishing wholefood lunch and afternoon tea from Food Forest Catering and FreshChoice Nelson
-Guided tour of the host's inspiring organic food forest
-Fresh ideas and hot tips for a happy body in the garden.

Learn some simple exercises during a movement class to expose & remedy unhelpful movement habits that contribute to the aches & pains we experience after a day in the garden.

Explore new ways of moving our hips, knees and backs to help strengthen, stabilise & mobilise our joints and discover sedentary nooks & crannies in our body that we didn't know we weren't moving!

Troubleshoot some common gardening movements, exploring how to arrange your body to avoid fatigue or strain.
