I LIKE THE WAY YOU WALK

YOU probably have tight calves and restricted mobility in your feet. Most of us do- you are not alone! Use this simple stretch with the half roller to lengthen your back line. This will help you walk with less restriction and keep you from shuffling along. BY THE WAY! We have this prop in all areas of the studio. Help yourself to this stretch anytime you are at Body Dynamics or buy one for your personal use at home! Walking without pain is wonderful! Enjoy!

BALANCE IS A BEAUTIFUL THING!

Balance is the basic platform to build your strength. When we stand on one lag we receive information on what areas might need strengthening. Our ankle may wobble, our hip might shift to the side, we might be using our thigh rather than our buttocks to help us stabilize. This is an opportunity to learn about your unique movement patterns and compensations. Check out this video explaining the use of the half roller to help you improve your balance. This unstable surface helps us get the true story.

Reverse Your Spinal Stress!

Help out your body from your daily forward flexed life by extending your spine over a small ball. This allows the ribs to move away fro the lungs, take in more oxygen and expand the chest. This exercise creates more mobility in your middle back so you can maintain good posture.
