His classes are typically filled with a great deal of laughter and joy even while students are meeting new and exciting challenges. Joe teaches his classes to challenge his students to expand beyond what they think is possible. Expect to laugh, to play, to meet new people and to be challenged. He will strengthen your personal confidence and show you the world from a different perspective.
Regardless of what your movement practice is increasing both strength and flexibility is integral to creating deepening functional movement. For most of us, we are more comfortable with either strength or flexibility because we have some seemingly natural ability or propensity toward it. In this session we are going to work toward increasing our front split active flexibility. This class is recommend for people who are already active and have a regular movement based practice.
