Do you know that digestion and movement are connected?
I know as a Restorative Exercise specialist that while most people don't seek out movement for gut complaints, it can be the missing link in resolving years of digestive trouble.
People come with achy backs and stiff hips, or perhaps restricted breathing. But when we look at whole body health, we see how the lack of mobility is also a contributor to gas, bloating, constipation and indigestion, slow transit times and feeling heavy.
So this month, we are all about creating the specific movements that help your digestive system work smoothly.
We will work from the inside out, starting with the breath and continuing with finding areas of tension and restriction, gently releasing them and bringing more flexibility and motion where it might be missing.
We will move with intention opening up what has been stuck and stagnant and inviting healing, graceful and gentle movement back.

- Free up your breath and abdominal tension

There are many different ways to move your body more and better, but nothing beats the variety of weekly classes and the attitude of a teacher who is knowledgeable, highly skilled and creative!
We all know how much of a challenge it can be to find the time, motivation and energy to do a meaningful personal movement practice.
Often, we give up because we don't want to drive so far to a class, or change our clothes, or leave our babies, or our homes. Often, clients say, it can take them an hour to commute, an hour to move and an hour to commute back.
When I left California, many students shared how much they miss classes in person - and then when our online students started requesting classes - we thought, well, maybe there is no better time than the present to offer short, effective, safe and fun online classes!

Galina is no ordinary teacher
"As a movement teacher I incorporate multiple healing movement modalities in my classes. As a Nutritious Movement Certified Restorative exercise specialist, my training is to guide you to find the gentlest and most appropriate exercises for your skill level.
Restorative Exercise is perfect for finding the sticky spots - those places that are deprived of nourishment and attention, limited by modern lifestyle and typical exercise programs.
I also bring mindful movement and my tools from Functional Movement Systems, Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, Somatic Practice and Somatic Experiencing.
My 20s were spent training people as a personal trainer, so I also bring my coaching experience to take larger patterns and break them down into bite-sized movements anyone can learn, as well as build large complex movements from the smaller skills you master in our classes.
Whether you are moving for healing or moving for performance, you will enjoy these classes with each moving cell of your body!"
