Are you an athlete, weekend warrior, couch potato or recovering from injury?
Whether you are in the studio, at play, home or work this class will instill balance, awareness and the skills to help you move into the zone.
According to research, one key aspect of being in the zone, or in the flow is that, while in flow, nearly all of the brain is focused on that one activity; it is too busy focusing to keep track of other thoughts and distractions. As such, the perception of time changes, discomfort dissolves and the mind becomes single focused. In, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience (1990). Csikszentmihalyi describes what happens during this experience:
- There are clear goals every step of the way.
- There is immediate feedback to one’s actions.
- There is a balance between challenges and skills.
- Action and awareness are merged.
- Distractions are excluded from consciousness.
- There is no worry of failure.
- Self-consciousness disappears.
- The sense of time becomes distorted.
- The activity becomes an end in itself.
Every Tuesday & Thursday @ 9 am and Wednesday @ 5:30 pm
The room is heated between 85-90 degrees
(Recovering from injury? Before class, please have approval from PT or Physician)
This spring and summer we are going to focus on core strengthening at the the studio. Joie is teaching a ‘Core Challenge’ class @ 11-noon, 5 Saturdays in a row, starting on April 18. Sunday mornings, starting in May, we will be offering a new class focusing on core; details to come. In preparation for the challenge, we will blog on what core strength is all about. The following is an excellent article written by the Canyon Ranch Reviewer:
“Many of us equate core strength with a flat belly or six-pack abs. And while those may be motivating goals to you, there are so many more benefits that come from improving core strength than how your midsection looks, including improved posture, better balance, reduced back pain and easier breathing.
Where is your core, exactly? If you pointed to somewhere around your navel, you’re partially right. Many people think the core consists only of the abdominals, but the core also includes your pelvic muscles, mid and lower back muscles, and even your hip muscles. All of these muscles work together to support your spine and skull.” ~Richard Butler, M.S., U.S.P.T.A.
