💧Feelin Myself Flow is a three week, workshop series that will utilize a full range of motion in dynamic movements to increase your functional flexibility and find your mobility sweet spots. 💧💧💧💧Attend one, or all three! Allow yourself to be guided through a simple, yet fun, rhythmic creative flow, interspersed with plenty of time to sink into certain stretches with ease. 💧💧You you will have the opportunity to explore your personal experience with mobility exercises and stretches designed to focus on the hips quads, hamstrings, chest, back, neck, and your lovely, lateral body💧💧Each class will cover a full body stretch, and similar techniques will be visited for the benefits of repetition, but we will also alter our approach and give various options so you can find your own sweet spot. 💧There will be modifications offered, props available for comfort and safety in stretching 💧💧In this workshop, you are also invited to: move off your mat, stop doing anything that doesn't feel good to you, close your eyes, look at yourself in the mirror, ask questions, laugh, cry, allow sounds to come through you. We are receiving ourselves in the moment, but we are also stretching together. The beauty of group experience is that we can connect with others, while we connect with ourselves. 💧Feelin' Myself Flow is designed to cultivate an innate awareness of your body's own "go-to" stretches and become attuned to what comes from within. 💧Investment $50 for the series (3 classes) or $20 per class. 💧Register at the link in my bio🤗
I often get asked about stretching and when and how to do it. To optimally benefit, stretching should be performed within 5-10 minutes AFTER practice or as a separate session with a thorough DYNAMIC and ACTIVE WARM-UP preceding, if increased flexibility is needed. The increase in body temperature increases the elastic properties of collagen. Please do not statically stretch prior to practice or performance as you might as well pull on a an old rubber band.
Stretching twice per week, for a minimum of 5 weeks has been shown to significantly improve flexibility. A static stretch should be held for 15-30 seconds, after which there are diminishing returns.
1️⃣ Make sure to perform a static stretch slowly as not to elicit the stretch reflex.
2️⃣ Hold and breathe in the stretch in a position of mild discomfort and never pain.
3️⃣ Joint integrity should not be compromised.
4️⃣ If loss of sensation or radiating pain occurs, come out of the position.

Really good session yesterday with surfer @kellysayssurf looking to improve shoulder health and function, decompress the Brachial Plexus nerve which causes whats called Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.
In these pictures we are restoring hip function and strength, having done side lying hip CARS prior. The first part of this move works the hip abductors maintaining alignment....also note by using the foam rollers that gives me indication of any compensation going on. By one hip abductors are contracted you then bend at the knee but make sure their is no hip flexion occuring this is a compensation! So side butt and hamstrings and really firing plus with the kettlebell generating plenty of irradiation.
I always say "If you don't use it, you don't get to keep it." This lady is keeping her movement top notch fo shiz!!! 👊🏼
So many people think and accept that just because they’re 50/40/30...etc, and sadly this number seems to be dropping, that their movement would deteriorate and that pain is inevitable. Which is total rubbish! 🐮💩 I want to challenge you to stop buying in such limiting and toxic beliefs. 🙅🏻♀️ I want to challenge you to start thinking and accepting that this is the NORM for a 72 years old person when you live a healthy and ACTIVE life and NOURISH your movement on the regular. 👍🏼
What say you? Share your thoughts with me in the comments! 👇🏼

#tenyearchallenge 🤡 I’m not totally sure what the point of this is, but I figured I’d take this time to talk about my biggest transformation over the last 10 years 🤷🏼♀️ 😃 •
At 20 years old, I was in the height of my performance career. I was performing often and training the rest of the time. My back was already injured, but it hadn’t been too bad for a while and I was still able to sit on my head. But the main thing I remember from this time in my life was an overwhelming amount of self doubt and insecurity. I cared SO. MUCH. about what other people thought of me. •
Fast forward to 10 years later- newly 30, I have a 5 year old son, a partner of almost 8 years, I have transitioned from performer to coach, and am traveling the world. But the biggest difference is that I don’t care AT ALL what people think about me. I still get anxious and doubt my self-worth and abilities, but I don’t let those feelings dictate my life. And the older I get (and to be honest, the more followers I get), the more I realize how equal we all are. And that thinking you’re better/worse than other people is such a monumental waste of time and energy. •
So for those anxious and insecure peeps out there, KEEP DOING WHAT YOU DO. Don’t let those feelings stop you from killin’ that proverbial shit. 👊💛 #trainingwithcatiebrier#contortiontraining#tilttuesday
Another bendy highlight from our Week 2 semi-privates 🤩 The ladies of #contortionintensive2019 are on 🔥🔥🔥 Here’s @mariahlwise’s new shoulder/upper back stretching sequence 💯 Great work, Mariah! Looking forward to seeing how this progresses in the next two weeks 😃
Keep in mind this is an ADVANCED stretching sequence, and I would not advise you to try this on your own 👌 If the shoulder position is incorrect it would be really easy to injure yourself. And on top of that, I’m constantly checking her alignment to make sure everything is even. So please, don’t try without an ok (and some help) from a qualified coach 🙏
