Library Classes 2016 – Sneak Peak

In conjunction with the Celebration Public Library, we’ve lined up some action-packed classes for all ages.

January through April bring a partner and learn massage techniques that will enable you to offer comfort to someone with minor aches and pains.  No one able in attend with you for a class?  No worries!  Others may be in that same boat and will need a partner too and I will offer ways to adapt techniques so that they can be done on yourself. Class will be hands on and powerppint driven; of course it will be fun and totally relaxing!!

Mark your calendars now!
PARTNER MASSAGE
Jan 23, Feb 27, Mar 26, Apr 23
3:00

May through August don your coolest spandex and tennis shoes for some cardio and stretching classes.  We will use Thera-band Resistance Bands and learn some easy, active isolated stretches.  Many can (and will) be able to be done in from a sitting position in a chair though some will also be done standing. Stretching will be bi-weekly with a cardio class on the opposite Fridays (1st and 3rd – Cardio / 2nd and 4th – Stretching).

Take home your Thera-band and practice stretching.  Bring it back each week for focus on a different body area.
Classes are geared toward a slower paced crowd looking for low impact movement, gentle stretching, and lots of excitement!

Correct Anitomical Position

Body At Rest

The next time you observe yourself in the mirror here are a couple of things to try and identify…

1.  Are your shoulders level?
2.  Are your shoulders rotated inwards as to pull you into a forward slump?
3.  Are your ears positioned in front of your shoulders (known as forward head posture)at all or are they aligned with them?
3.  Are your hips tilted to one side or the other?
4.  Are your hips rotated forward?

Often massage can help with these things.  For example, shoulders that are rounded forward can be addressed by working with the Pectorals Major (the muscle that spans the front of the body over the ribcage)

Awareness is the first key to improvement!  Once you have checked for these things add a little motion.  If you ‘row’ your arms, for example, does one move more freely than the other?  And if you bend your knee and grab your toes does one leg seem to have more ability to move?

These things are important to tell you massage therapist.  Upon knowing this information, your therapist can execute a massage treatment that is finely tuned to suit your needs.

Pizza on Christmas Eve

For Christmas my family has traditionally had homemade pizza on Christmas Eve.
I will never forget the year when…I added 1 CUP of oil to the dough when I should’ve only added 1 TABLESPOON!  Needless to say I spent the entire day making crust and I had a complete supply of pre-made crust for the entire upcoming year.
