Sensory Literacy

Time ~ 10mins
Start: On Your Back
Optional: Small Pillow

Ease into WAV sensorimotor training. We take you through movements that help you become acquainted with your WAV and begin to develop your proprioceptive literacy - that is your brain's understanding of where your body is in space.

Time ~ 30 mins
Start: On your Back
Optional: Small Pillow

Experience a movement session in which you are introduced to concepts rarely addressed elsewhere that provide profound insight into how and why you move. Awaken, activate and acquire skills to facilitate critical brain body connections for optimal movement and take away a more balanced, connected and integrated state of being. This session starts with the Intro to Sensorimotor Training sequence and progresses through lying, kneeling and standing.

Well-Being

Time ~ 27 mins
Start: Seated

Take a core focus as you work from the floor through developmental patterns to standing. Engage your brain body connection and the muscles throughout your body with an emphasis on developing core stability and strength. This flow sequence will also help develop healthy movement patters for your shoulders and upper back and while strengthening your glutes. Finish feeling connected and strong to take on any activity.

Time ~ 27 mins
Start: Seated

Move through developmental patterns to strengthen neural pathways and muscles throughout your body in a more physically challenging routine. Develop leg strength, improve hip mobility to ease lower back pain and thoracic stability for good posture, challenge your core throughout the sequence and finish with some balance training both of which are great for just about everything. Finish up feeling more coordinated and ready to dive headfirst into your day.
