Ready to fully embody your body? Come move with me!

My group classes focus on experiencing mindful movement as well as the joy of growing and learning with a community of other movers. Group offerings include:

 

Restorative Movement

Saturday 10am: The Studio at A Step to Health, Hillsborough, NC

Restorative Movement classes are designed to help you move with greater ease and efficiency, so that you can find joy in movement throughout your life. Not yoga. Not Pilates. Restorative Movement is a whole-body, whole-self experience. Your questions, comments, and reflections are encouraged during class! Whether it becomes your regular class or you just drop in for a day, this is your class and your community. Accessibility note: The Studio is up a flight of stairs, and no elevator is available.

Pricing: per-class cost ranges from $10-15. Check out The Studio’s website for more on class packages, or register using the button below. If you’re a local, your first class is free!

Restore Your Core

Wednesdays at 9:30am, Thursdays at 7pm at Empower Personalized Fitness, Durham, NC

NOTE: RYC™ classes resume 1/23.

Restore Your Core group classes teach you a method of retraining your core & pelvic floor muscles to be functional, reflexive, responsive, and supportive to your body. The class is great for diastasis recti, incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, back pain, core or pelvic floor dysfunction, or for those who simply want to build a strong foundation for their body. 

Pricing: per-class cost ranges from $16-20. You can see the class packages that Empower offers here. Your first class at Empower is free!

(afflink: I recommend the online Restore Your Core program between classes.)

We love the Saturday morning class and even after a year, there is always something new to learn...

This is a low stress class where laughter and movement combine and we recommend it for anyone! Whether your lifestyle is more sedentary or athletic you will learn how to stretch and strengthen many parts of your body that you just don't use on a daily basis.

Pelvic Floor Parties

A workshop just for you & your friends!

Sneeze pee? Need to wear a pantyliner while running or on the trampoline? You hear it's normal, but while it's extremely common, it is not normal. Kick back with tea or wine and a few of your friends to learn what to do about it. Come ready to move too—we'll practice a few moves that will help you begin to restore your pelvic floor, no kegels required.

Restore Your Core, Durham, NC, April 2019 (more info soon!)

We have been attending Larissa’s Restorative Movement class for over a year now and we love it! There are many strengthening exercises that we have learned and use at home or work on a daily basis to help improve our daily activities and lifestyle. We love the Saturday morning class and even after a year, there is always something new to learn. Larissa keeps learning and brings her discoveries to class, and this makes them fun and educational! We also feel that the hour and fifteen minutes of focus on one or two muscle groups leaves us feeling both stretched and energized - and over time, more flexible! There are many little things that we do, like changing up our dominant sitting position, that have raised our awareness of movement when not in the class.

This is a low stress class where laughter and movement combine and we recommend it for anyone! Whether your lifestyle is more sedentary or athletic you will learn how to stretch and strengthen many parts of your body that you just don’t use on a daily basis.
