Diaphragm, Core, Glutes: The Foundation For A Healthier Feeling Body, with Rob Stephenson
Saturday, January 26th, 2:00pm-4:00pm ($35)

The Diaphragm, Core, and Glutes (also known as DCG) are crucial body parts to understand when targeting balance, strength, and coordination. In our 21st century lifestyle, we spend a majority of our time positioned in ways that neglect and shut off access to these vital muscle groups. Between sitting at our desks, our car, and hovering over screens, we end up reinforcing patterns of posture and movement that limit the body's adaptive potential. This class will shine light on ways modern society restricts our human capacity for growth and self healing. It will offer general principles as well as specific tools to reengage and reactivate your DCG; the key mechanisms in reclaiming a more balanced and capable body. Take back control! Come join me on Saturday January 26th, and prepare to be both inspired and motivated to build yourself with intelligence and intention.

Rob Stephenson is a personal trainer and bodyworker with over 13 years of experience. His training methods blend Eastern and Western practices to help people overcome injuries, setbacks, and stagnation. Using holistic approaches with scientifically driven reasoning, Rob makes it his goal to get your muscles and joints working the way evolution intended.
