Feet, Hips and Hamstrings!
Yoga Foundation Workshop with Certified Yoga for Runners Instructor Marianne Moore
Tight hips and hamstrings are the result of sitting for many hours a can be exaggerated by running and other forms of athletics. Tightness in the hips and hamstrings can affect the lower back and can be downright painful!
If you have experienced lower back discomfort, stiffness in the hips and have difficulty touching your toes with straight legs, this workshop is for you! We will explore the movement of the hip joint, target the hamstrings and work on our feet while we work through a wide range of poses to both strengthen and stretch these commonly tight and weak major muscle groups!

Pilates for Riders - Improve the Harmony between You and Your Horse!
The workshop was held Friday 12th April 2014 and enjoyed by all who attended. Please call back for information about future workshops.
If you are a social or serious rider and want to know how you can get a little bit more out of yourself as well as your horse then this workshop may be of interest to you. Pilates has long been known to improve concentration, control, core stability, breathing, posture, stamina, flexibility, flow, strength and alignment.
We shall explore how various imbalances in the body are directly translated through to the horse perhaps giving it mixed instructions. The placement of your head over your shoulders over your pelvis are key while riding and training your horse and misalignment of these major body weights can have a huge impact in your and your horses balance. We shall also look at the stability in the shoulder girdle and how such small movements in the upper body are translated down the reins through to the horses mouth.
Cost £17 per person (payment in advance is required as places are limited).
Swiss balls used will be available to purchase after the workshop.
