Advanced Foam Rolling Workshop – 20th May 10.00-11.15am
This fun and hands-on workshop is designed to help you make the most out of your foam roller to aid with your training, rehabilitation and keeping fit! If you have already attended our Introduction to Foam Rolling workshop, this is the next step to gaining even more knowledge on how to use your foam roller!
You will learn a variety of exercises and techniques using your foam roller not only for stretching and self-myofascial release but also for strengthening and improving mobility. To give you a complete overall foundation we will cover different body parts such as the upper back and neck, trunk, lower back and legs.
Benefits of foam rolling include:
• Increased flexibility and mobility
• Decreased muscle tension
• Injury prevention
• Improves performance
• Limits soreness & tightness
• Speed up recovery time
This workshop is for those who have some experience with using a foam roller already and for those who want to advance their knowledge and exercises with the foam roller. The workshop will be held at Bodyworks and will be conducted by a qualified APPI Pilates trainer/Physiotherapist (Anna). Exercises will be shown and practiced within a safe environment and to ensure maximum learning the class will have a maximum of 6 participants.
You are required to bring your foam roller with you (if you don’t have one let us know and you can hire one from us) and arrive 5-10mins before the start time to fill out a health consultation form so Anna can work around any injuries you may have. You will also receive hand-outs with images that you can take home and refer to following the workshop.
The cost of the workshop including hand-outs is £25.
All those that attend this workshop will also receive a half price Sports Massage which will include a consultation, assessment and treatment.
If you are interested in in this Advanced Foam Rolling Workshop and would like to book or have any questions, please get in touch and we will be happy to assist.
Would you like to know your antioxidant levels?!
Antioxidants are a great indicator of our overall health and are vital in helping protect us from free radicals and DNA damage. It is said that our ‘Antioxidant Nutrient Status’ may be the most valuable statistic in the future as medial research can now confirm that many of the modern world diseases are associated with a shortage of antioxidants.
Antioxidants can enhance dental health, protect against skin aging, reduce Alzheimer’s risk, reduce inflammation, prevent the hardening of arteries, reduce risk of stroke, heart attack, heart disease, and cancer just to name a few. Knowing your antioxidant levels can help you keep track of your antioxidant health and know when your body needs a boost.
The Scanner provides a more accurate and reliable bio marker of your overall antioxidant health status than any other method and is completely non-invasive and pain free! You will place the palm of your hand in front of the Scanner’s safe, low-energy blue light laser, and you will obtain an immediate reading of the Carotenoid antioxidant levels in your skin – your Skin Carotenoid Score.
From 8th – 16th April you can book in for an Antioxidant Initial Consultation including:
– a 20 minutes one to one consultation with Ashleigh
– a short talk on antioxidants
– a scan to find out what your antioxidant levels are and how you can improve them
Or if you have already been scanned and would like to see if your score has improved you can book in for a follow up appointment!
Initial Consultation: £20
Follow Up: £15
