C-I TRAINING with Joan Fricke

Thursday March 24th, 2022 - 8:30AM

Location : The Lyric Hyperion, Los Angeles, CA

C-I Training (Conditioning-with-Imagery) is a body system which incorporates both conditioning exercises for muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility, as well as visualization and imagery work for neuromuscular re-patterning (or movement re-education), alignment work, and mind-body integration and connectedness. Additionally, its purpose is to address problems with transfer of training from conditioning and re-alignement methodologies to movement practices in classes, rehearsals, performances, and daily life. The applicaitons of C-I Training can assist with injury prevention, improved training practices, and appropriate warm-up procedures.

Do I need to be a dancer? No, C-I Training is a body conditioning system created for, but not limited to dancers. The 8:30am class is especially geared toward individuals who want to invest in a healthy movement practice, but don't necessarily consider themselves "movers." And the 10:00am class is geared toward dancers and individuals who consider themselves "movers."

What do I need for class? Yoga mat, water bottle, tennis/soft ball or yoga block // Optional: theraband, notebook and pen

Is there an age cap? No, if you are interested in learning exercises to help keep your body happier and healthier, then you are welcome in this class!
