Full-Body Alignment for Health and Wellness

Date: Tuesday, November 13th
Time: Open Networking from 5:45-6pm; Presentation from 6-7pm
Mayer Wellness, LLC
4060 Vinton Street, Suite 200
Omaha, NE 68105
Park in the north/upper lot.

Cost: $5 for NOTA members, $10 for non-members

Course Description: Get the most from valued occupations, from exercise to basic self-care, through proper body alignment.  Continually moving out of alignment creates wear and tear on joints resulting in pain and discomfort.  The fascia, muscles and other tissues must remold themselves to support this continual unintended misuse of the body. This remolding process creates a sensation of tightness setting up a downhill spiral for higher risk for injury. It is never too late to improve body alignment! This class will cover proper alignment and how to begin remolding the body to create a well-aligned body that is ready for action!

By the end of this class participants will be able to:

·Discuss how body misalignment can inhibit wellness.

·Identify easy to locate anatomical landmarks to identify body alignment and misalignment.

·Practice simple strategies to begin correcting misalignment that fit easily into any daily routine.
