Mini Foam Roller Flow Workshop (Online) Virtual
Oct 30, 2020 - Oct 30, 2020
 

Equipment Note: Regular length foam roller will work for the majority of the exercises.

Dynamic exercises can help develop more physical control. Flowing sequences require more endurance from the working muscles and fluid conditioning helps develop deeper connections throughout the body. In this workshop created by the programming team at Merrithew, learn flowing exercise sequences using a softer and shorter Foam Roller that will aid in hydrating and mobilizing fascia while increasing joint range of motion and mental focus. Transitions between movements require strength and stability as well as coordination and concentration, fostering a sense of heightened awareness and self-perception.

Rotational Disk Workshop (Online) Virtual
Nov 20, 2020 - Nov 20, 2020
 

The Rotational Disks add variety and challenge to Matwork at any level. Used alone or in pairs, they are perfect for testing balance and stability.

  • Discover how the Rotational Disks can be used to challenge stability and balance
  • Explore greater ranges of motion through the spine
