No class on Monday, May 20th

 

Join Team Atomica’s expert mobility coach, Katie Allen, weekly, mobility sessions on Mondays. Log into these virtual classes where you will be led through a combination of Yoga postures and Pilates-based exercises. These sessions address muscle tightness that impedes on finding your optimal range of motion to power your sport. By attending a mobility session, you can look forward to improving your ability to maintain your technique over longer periods of time, strengthening your postural muscles in addition to developing a stronger foundation in functional strength. Help speed up your recovery time between workouts and stay committed to your game!

Who can benefit from these classes:

  • Athletes who are increasing their training volume over the next few months 
  • Older athletes with limited range of motion in their hips, ankles, shoulders and neck
  • Athletes that consistently have soreness post-workout or find themselves limiting their workouts from working with pre-existing injuries 
  • Athletes who are not very flexible and want to improve their range of motion

These classes will help you:

  • combat chronic muscle soreness, fatigue, and poor posture due to tight muscles
  • reduce the time of post-workout recovery
  • improve your efficiency in the water by increasing your range of motion, which in turn can:
    >increase your speed and power
    >allow you to increase your training volume; and
    >help you overcome plateaus in your training to access more speed and power

What you will be guided through:

  • Pilates strengthening exercises for core and postural alignment
  • Resistance with Thera Bands to train the smaller intrinsic muscles that help support proper posture and joint mobility
  • Yoga postures + Breathing exercises to develop more awareness of your body
  • Downregulation techniques for stress management

  • Passive release techniques with a foam roller and/or lacrosse ball 

Specific Physiological Targets:

  • Shoulder Range of Motion and stability
  • Glute activation & release
  • Abductor Range of motion & release
  • Psoas Release
  • Hip mobility & strength
  • Downregulation techniques using breathwork and mindfulness tools
  • Hamstrings release techniques & repatterning for optimal function
