May Stretch Workshop with Cherie Lathey

Stretch Workshop with Cherie Lathey

Saturday 6th May 2017 (2 - 3:30pm)

Are you looking to increase your flexibility? Then this stretch workshop is 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 in balance in the muscles or stiffness around the joints.

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

This 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 and booking

This stretch workshop costs £25. To book your place, call us on 020 8789 3881 or visit the Yoga Mama online booking system.
