Garden Moves- You can move better to feel better in the garden.

Sunday 17th November 2019

Does a day in the garden leave you feeling a bit worse for wear? Sore back or achey neck or shoulders?

You can feel better by moving better!  Come along and learn some simple techniques and positioning to better use the levers and muscles in your body for the varied tasks of gardening.

This practical movement coaching workshop will explore the movements of gardening  (lifting buckets, moving wheelbarrows, digging, weeding, bending, lifting etc) & run through some simple exercises to work on at home to restore mobility and strength to areas that might need it.

These studio-based workshops involve some stretching and strengthening moves which are scalable to every body.  We will be getting on and off the ground & will be using mats & props to support our bodies. All you need to bring is some comfortable stretchy clothes that you can move in easily. Dress for an exercise class, not the garden.

There is also an afternoon tea, handouts to take home summarising the exercises & hot tips for staying pain-free in the garden.
