First Friday Foot Class

Friday, November 7th, 6:00 – 7:15 pm
Donation based, suggested minimum $5

Starting in November, come to Simple Human Studios First Friday Foot Class! Is once a month too much to ask to give your feet some good lovin’?

Our feet support us all day long, yet they are often the most neglected part of ourselves. They get stuffed into uncomfortable shoes for most of the day, and don’t get to relax until you go to bed. What we don’t often know is that feet are key to a long life of healthy mobility. For example, these highly developed, biomechanically complex structures deal with impact forces many times our body weight daily just to walk.

Learn how healthy feet are the foundation to a healthy body, and how to correct misalignments to reduce pain in the feet, knees and even the back.
This course is suitable for all bodies, ages, and levels of knowledge.

Location: 700 Alhambra Blvd on the corner of Alhambra and G st.

Embodying your Pregnancy
November 15th 10 am – 4 pm
$50, inquire for scholarship opportunities

This is a one-day class that explores the mechanics of birth for both the mom and baby, and more importantly, what you can do as a mother to help the birth go as smoothly as possible.  There are many easy exercises that release the pelvic floor (where the baby will pass through), and loosen and balance the pelvis for more comfort during pregnancy and flexibility during labor and birth. Other simple exercises and tricks will be taught to help prevent pelvic floor tearing and to give baby as much room as possible to turn as they get ready to enter into the world!

In addition to physical exercises, we discuss fears, exercises on how to let go of control and let the birth unfold as it’s intended, and how to get out of your head and into your body. There is no “right” way to give birth, only your way. This class is designed to help you get in touch with you and your baby!

It is open to all women, but the sooner in the pregnancy the better to give time to practice! This is a loosely structured class that provides room to explore topics of the participants’ interest; questions are encouraged.

Low Back Series:  Pelvic Floor Course
6 Thursdays starting January 8th, 2015   6:00 – 7:30 PM
$120 ($20 a class)

The pelvic floor is one of the most critical areas in need of attention. Unfortunately, it is also a difficult topic to talk about in our society. Anything below the waist tends to be taboo, and definitely not something talked about casually. The subject is often — wrongly so, mind you — reserved for recent mothers or women who are approaching 50.

This six week series will explore the muscles, bones, and organs of the pelvis through discussions and exercises; which will help you to achieve healthy balance through your every day. Part of a full, healthy life is taking care of every part of yourself. Even the places that are uncomfortable to talk about.

This course is open to women of all age, ailments and levels of experience. Register as space is limited.
