What is Mobility?

Mobility - the ability to move freely and easily. 

The mobility class is a combination of multiple methods of stretching, foam rolling, myo-fascial release, and movement quality improvement.  Mobility is so much more than your basic yoga or pilates class as it applies to not only general health, but improvement in your workout performance due to increased range of motion, suppleness, and movement efficiency. 

MOBILITY AT SYNERGY STRENGTH

Mobility classes can be added to your weekly routine before/after workouts or on rest days to improve your strength levels via better position, to decrease your potential for injury by improving joint range of motion,  to decrease soreness and increase recovery potential, as well as increase your quality of life.  Methods will include self myofacial release, undulating stretches, assisted stretches, PNF stretches, deep facial stretches and restorative postures. We will also use active stretches, which improve functional movement patterns, in an effort to become more of a "supple leopard". 

Each class will combine the techniques to optimize your stretching according to our focus for the day. We will use a whole body, rather than an isolated approach to stretching. We want to improve functionality, movement patterns and restore a functional range of motion where possible. Once you remove the limiting factor of restricted mobility, you will enjoy more freedom of movement, less pain and the potential to increase your performance. Improving your mobility pairs well with increasing your strength.

Anyone and everyone can use increased mobility.
