Midline & Mobility is an active recovery class that focuses on engaging your core to support mobility throughout your body, as well as lengthen and decompress your spine.

Our Midline & Mobility work pulls from the bodies of knowledge from yoga, classical Pilates, and mobilitywod, and we focus on mobilizing the entire body through movement. Pilates elements will work on flexing and extending throughout the body while developing more core capacity. The yoga and mobilitywod-style pieces will identify trigger points and inflexibility and provides movements and exercises to correct them.

Adding this class into your weekly training is a necessary for working on mobility issues, past injuries, and developing awareness in a low impact way that is beneficial to all athletes and lifters. We will pay special attention to developing a practice that benefits healthy shoulders, a healthy spine and core strength- all things critical to sport performance and CrossFit.
