MARCH STRETCH WORKSHOP

WITH CHERIE LATHEY

Stretch WorkshopAre you looking to increase your flexibility? Then this is the workshop for you!
Many people, whether they are elite athletes or desk-bound office workers, need to spend more time stretching to increase their range of motion. Lots of injuries and back problems can have their roots in tightness or imbalance in the muscles or stiffness around the joints.

This workshop is loosely based on the Yin Yoga principle of holding stretches for 3- 5 minutes, thus also stretching the fascia that surrounds the muscles.

This stretch workshop is open to anyone as we will use props to help facilitate this deep stretching. There is no jumping around and the workshop is mostly floor-based. Be prepared to take yourself out of your “normal” stretch comfort zone.

COST & BOOKINGS

This workshop costs £25. Booking is essential as spaces are limited. You can book online or by calling us on 020 8789 3881.
