classes

Durable Movement Classes are a 4-week exploration of movement therapy. 

 Each 60-minute movement class is designed to restore, reset, and refocus your body and mind.

COVID-19 NOTICE

We are all in this together figuring out the impact of COVID-19 with new information and changes occurring daily. As movement and restoration play an important role in supporting all of our health, until further notice these Durable Movement Classes will ONLY be available online.

The commute is quicker, parking is free, and you can pick the room temperature. And you don't have to be in Vancouver, Canada to attend.

The classes are 60-minutes and will have the option of attending the classes live through zoom, or catching the replay recorded class. 

I look forward to seeing you in these live online classes and helping to support and sustain your physical freedom as we continue to move during these unforeseen times. Let's embrace this together. 

Yours in health,


Sarah J

Durable Movement blends the science of healing biomechanics, pain education, and the energetic anatomy of regeneration techniques to deliver a 60-minute class that is the perfect balance to reset, restore, and refocus you for the week ahead.

These classes may look, and feel like yoga, but it draws from dozens of therapeutic modalities. Each class is thematically focused to improve joint resiliency and build greater body control that emphasizes the feeling of alignment through intuitive-based sequences in a guided exploratory experience that extends well beyond the mat.

 

EveryBODY moves differently, and these Durable Movement Classes are your chance to tune in and listen to what your body needs to move and feel better. You'll leave feeling increased range-of-motion, improved tissue regeneration, and expanded awareness.

  4 week

series

The Durable Movement Classes are a four-class series (Grounded, Expanded, Centred, and Aligned) that are progressive and flow together. Each class is carefully curated to create a sensory-rich environment starting with a guided movement meditation around the anatomy and physiology of the class theme, breathwork, and reflexology to deepen your individual needs.

 

The specific focus of each class is unique, using intuitive-based movement and energetic alignment principles while exploring the concepts related to pain science to reduce daily aches, improve mindset and whole-person recovery care.

 

Classes conclude with a regenerative focus using resonance breathwork, and lymphatic stimulation to raise the body’s vibration and balance energy.

Think: A rhythmic, breath-infused therapeutic environment designed to build new neural pathways that aim to relieve your daily aches and pains while improving mindful yin energy.

class descriptions

class 1

   grounded

This class is a deep dive into the physical and energetic aspects of building awareness from the ground up. The perfect prescription to erase daily aches and pains. Applying joint mobility and muscle-specific sequences to improve articular joint health, you’ll tap into neglected areas of your body through the use of intuitively  sequenced therapeutic movements, combined breath-work, and self administered reflexology. Emphasizing the thoracic spine, the hips, shoulders, and neck, because these areas are coming in hot. Cool them off here.

class 2

   expanded

Lean into restoration hard and tap into the power of breath and prana. This is a restorative ground-based practice that focuses on cultivating space in the spine, shoulders, and thoracic cage to improve posture. Explore a variety of gentle yin-style movements using restorative-based props to stretch, strengthen, and stabilize for a deep release. Learn how to breathe more effectively to manage stress, reduce anxiety, and improve your long-term health.

class 3

    centered

Creating awareness is the first step towards creating change. This class does this by blending the body's natural energetic anatomy and physiology of the chakra system. Through prioritizing your spine you will help improve circulation, oxidation, lymphatic stimulation, and nutrient uptake to the brain and body. Placing emphasis on segmental mobility and stability of the spine, you'll learn to free up space in the joints and improve flexibility. Step back from the athletic intensity and daily stresses of life to nourish and unwind from the inside out. 

class 4

    aligned

Bones and muscles are meant to work together in unity, but inactivity, lack of mobility or aging can reduce joint health and reduce elasticity in your tissues, leaving you tired, stiff, and sore. This is a dynamic, rhythmic class dedicated to reclaiming the natural spirals in your body. Here, we blend strength and tensegrity in motion using the body's natural fascial spirals to gently recondition the nervous system, and connective tissues of your body.  This class is like a proprioceptive party for your nervous system designed to melt stress and lift your mental state.
