Body Rolling

Starts May 1

In this class we will explore the use of foam rollers, and proper technique, in order to get many of the same benefits as a sports massage, without the big price tag. The foam rolling not only stretches muscles and tendons but it also breaks down soft tissue adhesions and scar tissue. By using your own body weight and a cylindrical foam roller you can perform a self-massage, break up trigger points, and soothe tight fascia while increasing blood flow and circulation to the soft tissues. This class is beneficial for all fitness levels.

Martial Arts

Learn confidence, safety awareness, self-defense, discipline and respect, all while having fun! Supervised physical contact is allowed only between qualified ranking students.
