With all of the sitting and repetitive movements we do every day, the hips often become achy and unstable. This workshop series will improve hip stability, mobility, and control, as well as restore some hydration to your pelvis. In addition to the hips, if you have knee stiffness, a knee replacement, or are looking to avoid arthritis and knee pain, this series will give you some helpful moves to reduce pain, while increasing stability and movement.
This three-session series covers almost all of the MELT moves, and the best MELT Maps for hips and knees for the first four levels of MELT. In the first session, we will cover the basic moves (MELT Hands and Feet and Level 1) to begin hydrating your body, reduce pain, and rebalance your nervous system. This class is perfect if you are new to MELT.
The second week will build on the first, incorporating Level 2 moves to directly hydrate your hips, knees, and connective tissue. This will bring even more relief, mobility to your hips and knees, and more relaxation and energy to your body and mind. These moves are very helpful to learn before trying MELT Neurostrength/Performance.
The third week of the workshop will focus on the Level 4 Neurostrength/Performance moves of the MELT Method, which offer a whole new level of hip and knee stability and mobility. MELT Performance focuses on repatterning compensatory neuro-pathways into more efficient pathways, based on the concept of neuromuscular therapy. These specialized movements allow you to access your unconscious neurological pathways to influence your own muscular timing.
If you are new to MELT, you will want to make sure you attend all three workshops, as the classes build on each other. If you have been doing MELT for a while, feel free to attend one, two, or all three of the sessions.
Please dress in comfortable clothing and bring a full water bottle.
Instructor — Sharie Moss
After spending the first half of her working life co-building a family business and raising three kids, Sharie decided to switch gears and return to what she is drawn to most: finding and practicing habits that get us as close to body-mind balance in everyday life as possible. After experiencing MELT for the first time and noticing the profound effect it had on her nervous system, energy, and body efficiency, she was hooked and wanted to learn and teach MELT. She finished her Level 2 training in October 2015 with MELT innovator Sue Hitzmann and is excited to share these simple, but extremely effective moves with anyone who also wants to find the best in their bodies, whatever their age.
Sharie developed her innate sense of body movement after spending two decades as a competitive swimmer finishing at the national level of competition. Wishing she would have had MELT to ease her aches and pains and improve her performance back then, she now uses MELT to keep her moving like a much younger person, dancing injury free, as well as keeping her entire life more balanced. She loves seeing how MELT has helped all types of people, from seniors wanting to acquire more balance and ease in their bodies, to teens managing the mind and body stress of school and team sports, to busy parents trying to get enough sleep and peace in their day, to athletes who want to improve their performance and stay injury-free.
Sharie encourages you to give MELT a try so you can experience the comprehensive body-mind benefits for yourself!
