Online Workshops at LSM

Improve your self-care without leaving your house

Taking care of yourself doesn’t have to be painful, difficult or time-consuming.

Join one (or all!) of our online workshops to see how effective gentle, painless stretching & foam rolling can be, and how to feel better working at a computer or while exercising. 

Our schedule is here, and below are the descriptions of each of the workshops we have for you.

Glute Activation

Firing up your glutes is something most of us forget to do, however it is key to preventing injury, improving posture and improving performance overall.

In this workshop, you’ll learn:

      • simple glute activation techniques
      • how to self assess and know your practise is effective
      • what to do when, to get the most benefits in the least amount of time
      • a warm-up for runners/cyclists & pre-conditioning activation routine 

Because it’s a practical workshop, you’ll feel the difference from the techniques right away.

Make Desk Posture Easier (WFH)

We all know that we *should* sit properly at computers, but it often feels awkward, uncomfortable and exhausting.

Caught in a Catch-22 – we know poor posture makes us tense and achy, but good posture is awkward and tiring. 

In this workshop, you’ll learn:

      • how to switch to good posture, without creating more aches and pains  
      • what good posture actually is (and the mistakes you’re probably making when you try to sit in good posture) 
      • how to have good posture even if you’re in a dining chair and kitchen table
      • a single, 30-second stretch that makes good posture feel 40-80% easier, immediately 

Next date: Mon, 12 Apr 2021 7:30 pm (UK Time)

Lower Body Stretches

If you’re a runner, cyclist, triathlete or you just feel your legs are heavier than they should feel, this workshop is for you. 

In this workshop you’ll learn:

      • the stretching mistakes you’re probably making
      • how to feel an immediate difference in your legs with stretching
      • how overstretching can increase your chances of injury and how to avoid it

This is a practical workshop so you’ll be doing the stretches as we go and feel the difference immediately. 

Next date: Sun, 2 May 2021, 4:00 pm (UK Time)

Stretches For Computer Users (WFH)

Stretching the wrong way makes your muscles tighter, and stretching the wrong thing makes your imbalances worse. What can you do?

In this workshop, you’ll learn:

      • how to stretch effectively
      • how to use testing & palpation to KNOW your stretching is effective
      • the main stretches you need to take pressure off your neck, shoulder & upper back
      • what to do when, to get the most benefits in the least amount of time

Because it’s a practical workshop, you’ll feel the difference from the stretches right away, and you get a handout to fill in so you can remember the stretches for future.

Next date: Mon, 10 May 2021, 7:30 pm (UK Time)

Breathing for Neck, Shoulder and Back Pain

Breathing techniques help to reduce muscle tension, thereby lessening pain. And who doesn’t want to lessen pain right?

In this workshop, you’ll learn:

      • how breathing with your diaphragm is different than with your neck muscles
      • how to tell the difference
      • how to re-train your muscles to breathe with your diaphragm
      • how this breathing approach can relax your neck and shoulders
      • a simple breathing practice to do before bed

This is a practical workshop and most clients notice an immediate improvement in their breathing after doing the work we cover in this workshop.

Foam Rolling

Want to relief muscles tightness, soreness, inflammation and increase your joint range of motion? If yes this is the workshop for you.

In this workshop you’ll learn:

      • which muscles you should foam roll vs stretch
      • how painful foam rolling can actually make your muscles tighter
      • how to find your perfect foam rolling position 
      • how to tell if your foam rolling is effective

This is a practical workshop so you’ll be actively doing the foam rolling and feel the difference immediately.
