Movement Training Seminar Building Block 1: Activate Your Brain & Body Connection
August 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm$25
Train your brain and body to work better together and become more mindful of your body’s everyday motion. Each training in this seminar series is a building block to add to your improved movement in daily life. You will learn techniques and simple movement exercises that build on each other to help you:
- expand your range of motion
- move more efficiently
- increase your flexibility
- correct your posture
- improve your natural gait and the way you walk
- improve your balance, coordination and spatial awareness
- correct issues with somatic pain and motor control
- enhance your physical performance and/or prevent injury
- manage chronic pain
- rehabilitate after an injury or accident
This Building Block 1 Seminar is an introduction to Movement Training. Movement Coach Maressa Rahn will teach:
- The basic science of movement training: how the brain-body connection can improve your overall motion, pain management and physical performance
- Connected systems: vision, key muscles including the psoas muscle and the vestibular system (inner ear)
- How movement affects the lymphatic system which is part of the immune system
- How we slowly lose movement capacity
- Brain-body action exercises: ankles, hips, arms, shoulders, neck and eyes
- Easy ways of incorporating more movement in your daily life
- Stimulating spine movement through breathing exercises
This seminar is interactive, with movement exercises and techniques. Dress in comfortable clothes and footwear.
About Movement Training
Movement training combines evidence-based biomechanical and neuroscience approaches to correct movement dysfunction and maximize range of motion. Our modern lifestyle and technologies have come at a cost to our bodies. There are parts of us that are not getting the needed daily dose of movement required for long-term mobility, balance, coordination and brain-body connection. With the body and brain being so intricately connected, when we activate the body through movement, we activate the brain. When a body part doesn’t get the required movement, we are also not activating the parts of the brain that are connected to these parts. Over time we gradually lose our brain connection to these parts. Restoring movement of all your parts restores your mobility and re-engages parts of the brain that are connected to these body parts.
With the belief that “life is movement; movement is life,” Maressa Rahn is committed to improving people’s quality of life through movement training. She is a certified specialist in the fields of movement performance, exercise therapy, movement integration and movement re-education.
