Athlete Recovery sessions

The ability to down-regulate by using breath and movement is essential for athletes. Breath, slower movement and stretching can help with recovery and help with empowering you to be in control of your state (ie: go from sympathetic to parasympathetic). Train hard, rest harder!

If you’re interested in a recovery session for your sports team, contact me at info@crossfitmorden.ca 

Mindful Movement 

Next series TBD

The undergirding principle behind Mindful Movement is 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.). 

Movement should be enjoyable and should be part of our entire day – not just one our in the gym. Our idea of “exercise” is often very limited in its definition. In this class, we will explore how to add more movement into our daily lives and how to expand our ideas of when movement and exercise gets to happen and how to enjoy that rather than view it as a punishment to “burn off calories.” We can increase our movement throughout the day and also enjoy it! It can be refreshing to change your perspective on what exercise means to you.

Variety and diversity keep our bodies healthy and happy. Mindful Movement is a fusion of movement practices. It is experimental in nature. We will play with all kinds of ways to move. This class is a combination of ancient movement practices such as breath and movement from Yoga and Qigong as well as more modern modalities of movement such as natural movement, functional strength, range of motion work with active stretching, soft tissue releasing as well as passive stretching.

This class will take place at CrossFit Morden. 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. Come with comfortable clothes and if you have, a yoga mat (though we have those to borrow if you need!). Shoes not necessary.

General Class Focus:

  • Breath 
  • Explore body-mind connection
  • Mindfully moving
  • Stretching
  • Mobility (moving well around the joints)
  • Strength
  • Making good movement decisions for your unique and awesome body

  • Balance
  • Shoulder mobility
  • Hip hinging
  • Squatting

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!
