This class will be low impact and the undergirding principle will be how can we mindfully move and increase our capacity to move well in life. There is a saying that I believe is so true: “If you don’t move it, you lose it.” Think of this as a sustainable movement class that will compliment whatever you enjoy doing (be it another form of exercise, dance, kids, grandkids, your job, etc.)

This class will take place at CrossFit Morden, but will not be a typical CrossFit class. It will be low impact and low intensity and if you are familiar with a yoga class, it will feel more along the lines of that.

General Class Focus:

  • Breath practice
  • Explore body-mind connection
  • Mindfully moving
  • Stretching
  • Mobility (moving well around the joints)
  • Strength

We will work on specific functional movements:

  • Pushing
  • Pulling
  • Posture
  • Balance
  • Shoulder mobility
  • Hip hinging
  • Squatting
  • Hanging
  • Posterior chain strength
  • Core stability
  • Floor to standing transitions

Every week I’ll be posting to my Instagram page a couple movements for you to try out. Those movements will be one’s we’ve done in the most recent class. Rather than sending out an email, I’ll just post them there and you can follow along if you’d like!  https://www.instagram.com/brookenelsonmvmt/

Brooke Nelson – A movement and breath practice have been one of the ways I have been able to be present, to find a still-point amidst what has sometimes seemed like chaos, and to connect with something bigger than myself.

My classes explore functional movement, variability, active and passive stretching as well as exploring joint mobility, strengthening, and simple breath work woven into the constant theme of practicing being present.

My influences for my practice and teaching come from a variety of modalities including yoga, strength training, CrossFit, functional range conditioning, breath work and natural movement (aka: moving in nature). I am always learning and currently enrolled in another yoga teacher training online. The journey never ends!

  • Winter months can be chilly in our big space, so bring warm clothing and if you’d like, a blanket for rest at the end of class.
  • We don’t have air conditioning (so it could be a bit hot during those hot summer days but we do have fans to circulate the air).
  • You don’t have to be a CrossFit Morden member to attend these yoga classes.

Once you’ve paid for classes, you can sign into our app (Wodify) for the class(es) you’d like to attend. You can come to any yoga class on the schedule. You will only be able to sign into a class in the app if you’ve prepaid.
