DoSA Total Body Stretching Workshop (4/28)

Stop by the RAC for our last workshop of the semester! Flexibility is an essential component of fitness that is often neglected or left out in preference for developing other areas of fitness. This workshop will introduce a variety of stretching methods to provide the framework which will allow you to extend the range of movement at the joints. This may help prevent injury and improve performance of health and sports related activities, as well as help the body into a heightened state of relaxation. Stretching exercises can be adapted to accommodate individual needs so everyone will benefit from this workshop. Join us 4/28 at noon on the indoor track!

FREE giveaways to ALL who participate.
