Straighten Before You Strengthen Workshop
Yoga for Living, in Cherry Hill, will host Straighten Before You Strength, an Improve Your Workout Workshop, from 1 to 2 p.m., September 24. Egoscue Certified Postural Alignment Specialist Deb Freeman will teach this course.
“Every bodybuilder’s focus is on the balance of their physique,” explains Freeman. “Look closely at yourself in the mirror. Do you notice one shoulder is higher than the other? Do your feet turn in or out? Do your shoulders hunch over from sitting at the office all day? All of these and more show that your musculoskeletal structure has been compromised from its original design. As a result, your workout will be compromised.”
Form is critical when it comes to avoiding energy and getting the optimal benefits of exercise but good form is dependent upon skeletal position and muscular balance. Without balance, the body is more susceptible to joint wear and injury. This workshop helps individuals learn a few simple exercises that can be performed to align the body closer to the optimal position for a workout, allowing for the safest way to increase strength and endurance through correct muscle targeting.
Cost: $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Location: 1926 Greentree Rd. For more information or to register, call 856-404-7287 or visit YogaForLiving.net.
