Becoming Unbreakable: Using Natural Movement and Play to Prevent Injury

Becoming Unbreakable:

Using Natural Movement and Play to Prevent Injury

This session is all about using partner games and scenarios to playfully test our movement boundaries, notice imbalances, and work to improve them. It’s heavily inspired by Fighting Monkey – a movement practice focused on using partner work to become the most adaptable and resilient version of ourselves. 

One of the concepts behind this practice is the idea that humans cannot evolve alone. When we train by ourselves, we can get stuck in the same patterns; isolation breeds stagnation. To truly push ourselves outside our comfort zone (and unearth weaknesses), we must work with a variety of partners and settings that will challenge us safely, yet progressively. 

Expect to experience many engaging games and techniques you can use to test and improve your stability, mobility and hand-eye coordination – both on your own and with one or more partners. All of the games will focus on building functional strength and resilience in our most essential natural movement patterns (pushing, pulling, hinging, squatting, balance, etc.).

Born to Walk: An Introduction to Better Balance

IMG_2261.jpeg

Born to Walk: An Introduction to Better Balance

with Patrick Hogan

Walking is sometimes described as controlled falling... but is that our natural gait? Or is that just the common (normal) way of moving in our modern day world?

Another perspective is that walking is a series of single leg balances.

Join Patrick in this intro to his weekly class series “Born to Walk” where we’ll discuss the importance of balance in our walking gait, why we associate loss of balance with age, and how our daily habits will either help or hinder our balance over time. Plus, we’ll learn 6 essential exercises to help regain this most important skill.

Whether you’re an athlete looking to increase your efficiency in movement or a “goldener” looking to prevent falls as you age, you’ll find useful and eye opening information in this introduction.

Note: This introduction is a prelude to a regular class series on Sundays exploring similar topics.

When: October 6th, 3-4pm

Cost: $5

Catskills Campout: Devil's Path

  • Devil's Path Catkskills, NY (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
extra_large_4369574496bf02d7b8de552de65a7189.jpeg

Alright, friends. We've got another adventure for you, but please note that this isn't for everyone. Because of the difficulty level, we are capping this at 10 people. You must be physically fit and in shape for a very challenging hike. You must be able to hike 12-16 miles in a day.

So here's where we're headed: Devil's Path in the Catskills of New York

We're planning to head out bright and early Saturday morning. We will camp overnight and finish the hike Sunday, then return to New York City.

About the trail:

Devil's Path in the Catskills is a 25.2 mile trail and is considered to be one of the hardest hikes in the country. It goes across the eponymous mountain range and then three other peaks to the west, offering hikers a chance to reach the summits of five of the 35 Catskill High Peaks (two more are reachable by detours). It draws hikers from not just the region but far outside, due to the challenging climbs straight up and down the steep gaps between the four peaks of the range, which often requires hikers to use hands as well as feet to pull themselves almost straight up cliffs and through rocky chutes. These climbs, however, lead to views across the Catskill range.

We will sort out the rides once we see who is going and costs will be split for that. Please not that we may need someone to rent a car depending on the number of cars in the group. You're responsible for bringing your own camping supplies, food, snacks, etc. We are simply facilitating the meet-up.

Please do not RSVP and then cancel unless it’s an emergency. Only sign up if you’re truly in 100%.

When: September 21-22nd, we’ll be camping out overnight!

Training with Pain: Adjusting Your Workouts to Meet Your Goals

IMG_8329.jpg

Training With Pain: How To Adjust Your Workouts To Meet Your Goals

with Joanna Nobbe, Physical Therapist

About the Workshop:

Pain can be a great teacher, although it's not always pleasant or fun. Working with pain or recovering from an injury can teach you so much about your body, movement, your motivations, your goals, your beliefs...indeed, yourself. 

In this two-hour workshop, you’ll learn a practical approach to keep exercising, moving, and playing within your comfort zone. You'll learn some criteria for when to modify or stop an activity, and when it's OK to move with some discomfort or pain. Also, what IS pain anyway? (Hint: it's way more complicated that you probably think!)

You'll learn parameters to adjust or modify when an exercise or movement is uncomfortable, then how to progress and regain skills as your body adapts and improves.

The goal of this workshop is to promote confidence, self-efficacy, creativity, and longevity in your movement practice, rather than fear, and avoidance. And, of course, when it's appropriate to consult with an expert, because sometimes we all need a little help.

You’ll come away with a new understanding of pain, of your own coping strategies — and new tools to work with your body in an empowering way.  All levels welcome!

Cost: $45

When: Saturday, September 14th, 12-2pm

Wim Hof Method Fundamentals Workshop

Wim Hof Method Fundamentals Workshop

with Avi Greenberg

Put yourself in the expert hands of a certified WHM Instructor to learn the 3 pillars of the Wim Hof Method: Breathing Technique, Cold Exposure & Commitment. Find out how you can utilize oxygen and cold exposure to optimize body & mind, and learn about the underlying physiology.

The intimate quality allows for ample personal attention, and feedback tailored to your specific situation. Whether you are looking to improve mental or physical performance, relieve symptoms related to an illness, or are just curious to find out what the Wim Hof Method is all about— a WHM workshop offers something for everyone.

The program generally kicks off with an introduction to the Wim Hof Method, and always includes a breathing session and an (optional) ice bath. At the end there is ample room for reflection, and the Instructor is there to answer questions throughout the workshop.

Instructors have their own specializations, and there is some variation across the individual workshops. A detailed overview of the day is sent out upon registration.

If you have no prior experience with cold exposure, we recommend you finish your showers cold in the days leading up to the workshop. This may be overwhelming at first, but just try to relax, focus on your breath, and bring it into a controlled, steady rhythm.

Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is suitable for everyone, but does require a basic level of health. Out of precaution, we advise against participation during pregnancy, or if you are epileptic. People with cardiovascular issues, or any other serious health conditions should always consult a medical professional before starting the Wim Hof Method.

What to Bring

  • Towel

  • Blanket (optional)

  • Bathing suit

  • Comfy Clothes 

  • Light snack (optional)

Yin Yoga Workshop with Becky Power

Untitled design (3).png

Yin Yoga Workshop

with Becky Power

Practice stillness! We all pay homage to slowing down and becoming more present, but like all New Yorkers we don't do a very good job. Yin Yoga is a practice that can help us understand how to tap into the parasympathetic aspect of our nervous system. This is our rest and digest mode. The place where the body is most at ease. Most of us are always in some level of sympathetic activity, fight or flight mode. Even if it is not obvious to you, there is some level of stress taking its toll on your body and its ability to recover from life or training.

In Yin Yoga, you practice holding non-aggressive postures for long periods of time. The long holds, often for multiple minutes at a time, offer the opportunity to give over control, to release and relax.

On a physical level, Yin Yoga's postures and long holds help to access the passive system of movement (think your connective tissues). This ties in beautifully with one of the keystones of Hanuman Health Club's training philosophy: training to the maximum range of motion that you have control of. A lot of our connective tissues are centered around our joints, so while we may be training through the full range of motion that our muscles allow, we may not be training the connective tissue because of limitations around the joints. Yin Yoga's postures allow us to access these ranges in an incredible safe and controlled manner.

Think of Yin as a fantastic way to complement your regular training and movement, a method to expedite recovery, mindfulness and stillness. If you want to slow down, then it's a simple sauce, just slow down.

Our Yin workshop is taught by Becky Power. Becky currently lives and teaches in Dublin and is an incredibly accomplished Vinaysa teacher. She already holds a 200-hour certification in Yin Yoga and has just completed another 100 hours of Yin training. Her teaching has taken her all over the world. From London to Sydney, Costa Rica to Bali, she now offers her very first workshop in the USA and we are lucky to have her in NYC at Hanuman Health Club.

When: Saturday, August 24th, 11-1pm

Cost: $45


10 Benefits of Practicing Yin!

1. The yin practice can help the body restore range of motion.

For healthy range of motion, layers of connective tissue must allow muscles to glide over each other. But injury, habitual posture in daily life, and aging, among other factors can bind these connective tissues together, creating so-called adhesions and restricting that movement between the sliding surfaces of the muscles. Like a traffic jam, adhesions block the flow of nutrients and energy through the body, causing pain and limiting mobility. Holding poses that gently lengthen the muscles and fascia helps break up adhesions, and applying mild stress to joints and connective tissues can increase their range of motion. 

2. Yin yoga revitalizes the tissues of the body.

Our body’s tissues can be revived by a good long soak the same way that an old, stiff sponge can. As you hold a yin pose, the subtle release that takes you deeper into the pose is the tissues lengthening, hydrating, and becoming more pliable. If you pay close attention, you can sense the tissues being stretched, squeezed, twisted, and compressed. A yin practice can leave you feeling as though you’ve had a massage.

3. Yin offers a unique opportunity to cultivate gratitude for the body.

The simplicity of a yin practice allows us to return to our bodies and to see clearly just how remarkable we really are. Journeying into the deeper layers of ourselves, we tune into our inner workings, connecting to respiratory and circulatory functions, internal organs, and sensations within the muscles and joints. This heightened awareness of the physiological processes of the body ultimately moves us closer to santosha, or contentment.

4. The yin practice forces us to slow down.

Yin poses’ long holds offer a chance to marinate in stillness. When you allow yourself to stay present and experience the near-imperceptible shifts that occur while holding a yin posture, time opens up. Deadlines, commitments, pressing matters, and to-do lists fade to the background, leaving tremendous space for rest and renewal.

5. Yin yoga teaches self-compassion.

The ability to tend to all facets of ourselves (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) is fundamental to our wellbeing. The yin practice provides an opportunity to observe, nurture, soothe, and calm ourselves. The act of carefully taking a posture and tending to your body’s unique set of needs for the duration of the hold is a form of self-care and lovingkindness.

6. The long hold times of a yin practice offer the chance to sit with our emotions.

Our bodies store emotions, and it’s not uncommon for sensitive thoughts, feelings, and memories to surface while practicing any form of yoga. Yin teaches us how to be gentle, patient, and nonreactive. When emotions bubble to the surface, the conditions are safe.

7. Yin yoga can help us become more resilient to stress.

Holding a pose for several minutes can provoke anxiety. But when we approach it with tenderness, the body acclimates. Surrender is a common theme in yin yoga, and giving up the need to control a situation is a lesson that we can carry with us into our day-to-day lives. The ability to adapt to the ups and downs of life and to manage change with grace can lessen our predisposition to stress.

8. Yin yoga can help us tap into the parasympathetic nervous system.

Diaphragmatic breathing, or belly breathing, is a powerful way to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system. You may have heard some of the reasons activating the parasympathetic nervous system is beneficial (stress, tension, blood pressure, sleep, digestion, immune function, hormones, etc)—and that most of us don’t do it often enough. Instead, we spend our days locked in sympathetic nervous system overdrive, constantly being pulled from one overly important deadline to another. Belly breathing can be a quick and easy way to change this. Pay close attention while breathing from the abdomen and in no time you will notice a significant shift. It may feel like a wave of relaxation washes over the body. The deepest layers of the belly soften, the forehead tingles, and the brain relaxes. It’s as if the whole body takes a prolonged sigh. As you move deeper into the yin practice, the breath slows down significantly drawing you deeper and deeper into this parasympathetic, or relaxation, mode. This is where the internal organs get a chance to catch up on their to-do list (digest, eliminate toxins, heal, repair). 

9. The stillness of a yin practice primes us for meditation.

Meditation is not necessarily something you have to find; sometimes it finds you. The yin practice sets us up to tap into the meditation bandwidth. We rarely see who we really are because the cloud of thoughts and distractions block the view. When we create opportunities for physical stillness in a yin practice, we also create the perfect conditions for the brain to become clear. In these precious moments, we are able to see our true selves.

10. Yin yoga cultivates balance.

Your own health and wellbeing is a balancing act. If you look at the yin/yang symbol you will see that the white and black forms are in perfect balance. Many of us live very active (yang) lifestyles and leave little or no time to foster the quiet, introspective side. Over time this can be physically, mentally, and emotionally draining. Through the yin practice we can restore equilibrium and feel whole.

The Joy of Breathing Workshop - Part TWO!

JamieYoga-75.jpg

The Joy of Breathing Workshop - Part Two!

with Ilya Tsinis

Breath is the engine of health, performance, and joy. In part 1, we focused on deep breathing, the relationship of breath to posture and emotions, and began exploring breath with movement. In this two-hour workshop, we will shift our focus to breathing during various exercise modalities (aerobic, strength endurance, strength, power), as well as recovery between sets, recovery between workouts, cool-downs and stretching, and breath development/training. We will look at breath from both health and performance angles. The emphasis will be on application and hands-on exercises. You will come away with new tools you can immediately apply in all areas of your life.

All levels welcome!

About the Instructor:

Born in Moldova, raised in Brooklyn, Ilya grew up playing many sports and loving outdoor activities. From those roots, health and fitness have always served multiple purposes, from physical health to social connection and meditation to play. Ilya has a background in gymnastics, calisthenics, breakdancing, tennis, rock climbing, and martial arts. As a Princeton engineering grad, music composer, and long-time tutor, he has found health and fitness offers him the opportunity to combine all three passions. Ilya approaches health and fitness both as an engineer and an artist – analytically and playfully. He advocates being a generalist and lives by the Leonardo da Vinci motto that "everything is connected."

Know Your Core: EXPRESS! with Patrick Hogan

Untitled+design.png

Know your Core: A workshop exploring function and stability of our body’s center

Join us on the last day of this 4-week core series to get a great overview and immersion into what we’ve covered so far! 

Most of the movements of our body involve what would be considered “the core”. Yet this area of the body is so much more than just having “strong abs”. Let’s dive into this area of the body to dispel some myths and explore how good alignment of the core brings about balance, stability, tone and better function of the body. Through our core we’ll also explore: 

  • Freeing your breathing

  • Releasing unnecessary tension

  • Learning how to save your back

  • Finding more ease and freedom in our major categories of movement such as lifting, carrying, walking, running, and sitting

Clubbell Workshop with Eoghan O'Kelly

catseyepix-5876-2.jpg

Clubbell Workshop

with Eoghan O'Kelly

Ever wonder what those 'weird weighted bats' are?

Clubbells have been around for a very very long time, their origins being found with Persian wrestlers from a thousand years ago. In fact, Hanuman himself used the Mace or Gada as his strength tool....one of the reasons for our name!

The wrestlers used them for shoulder health and overall strength. Swinging weight around your head forces you to stay grounded ;). At Hanuman we use them for many different reasons. Primarily though as a tool to improve rotation and movement in the transverse plane. Twisting and Turning. Movements that are highly under trained in modern gyms but movements that are extremely important to proper core function. We use the club to teach this type of movement with momentum based and controlled exercise. Once we have mastered these basic concepts then we can access the true benefit of the clubs with flowing continuous movements rather than exercise that has a start middle and end point.  

In this workshop, we will go over these concepts. The first portion of the workshop will be centered around controlling the club, while the second portion we will look at flowing with the club.  This workshop is for anyone who is interested in working with Clubbells or if you are current member who wants to get a better understanding of the tool. 

The benefits of Club work include:

  • shoulder mobility

  • enhanced overall movement quality

  • enhanced coordination and proprioception

  • enhanced focus and concentration

Sign up below!

Cost: $45 (half off for unlimited members!)

When: Saturday, April 6th from 12-2pm

Limited spots available, so register in advance to save your place.

Beginner's Mace Workshop with Eoghan O'Kelly

EoghanHanuman-80.jpg

Mace WORKSHOP

WITH EOGHAN O'KELLY

Learn all about the steel mace and how to integrate it into your workout in this beginner’s mace workshop!

The steel mace was historically used as a club with a heavy head to “bludgeon” opponents. Its origins date back more than 1,000 years, used in the Middle Age in conjunction with that heavy arm prevalent as an ancient weapon. We, of course, use it in strength and mobility training today. The Mace is perfect for full body strength, rotational and mobility work. It requires you to find balance while offsetting the weight, which is heavier on one end.

This workshop will help current members and non-members find confidence with the mace as we integrate some of these movement patterns into class.

The benefits of Mace work include:

  • shoulder mobility and rotational power 

  • muscular endurance

  • enhanced coordination and proprioception

  • imbalance correction

  • overall movement quality improvements

    When: Saturday, January 12th, 12-2pm

Beyond Foam Rolling: The Practice of Self Myofascial Release

IMG_9729.jpg

with Sensei Derek Cook

Your soft-tissue and myofascial system intimately connect your muscles, tendons, bones, nerves, blood vessels and organs.  They keep a detailed record of your past, affect you in the present, and influence your future. Our holding patterns, habits, go-to stances and even beliefs create and shape our form.  Movement practices, like yoga, move and work the body in an amazing and useful way. However there is more work to do. Self Myofascial relief is a practice of using specially designed tools to access, differentiate, explore and ultimately release adhesions and restrictions.  Join Sensei Derek Cook - biomechanist and structural bodyworker to explore the science behind SMR, and the techniques that can bring significant and lasting relief to this body we use and work in our asana practice. This workshop will take a large picture / full body perspective and include some in depth discussion of the system at play, and how to heal them.  

When: Sunday, November 4th at 11:15am

Cost: $45 (half off if you’re an unlimited member!)

Biking Excursion to a Brewery!

03-1-1030x579.jpg

Join us on Saturday, November 3rd for this epic bike ride to a craft brewery!

Biking, lunch, beer and beautiful scenery are all included on this great day out! All levels welcome. :)

The Putnam Division of the New York Central Railroad – the “Old Put” – used to chug commuters into New York City from communities in Westchester and Putnam Counties. First run with steam trains, then with diesels, the route was ultimately abandoned in the 1950’s as the region’s highways were constructed. Fortunately, much of the railroad right-of-way was left in tact, and now it is a bike path stretching 48 miles between Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx and Brewster.

We will be taking a 17 miles bike ride to the Brewery with plenty of scenic views along the way. Historic markers and remnants of the old railroad line the route, giving you an opportunity to learn about the history of the railroad and the communities it served.

When you reach the end of the ride, you’ll get experience Captain Lawrence Brewery and have a tasting of up to 5 beers!

18-1030x773.jpg

THE DETAILS

It's a 17 mile ride from Inwood to Captain Lawrence Brewery. After we have some sips, we'll hop back on the bike to Tarrytown, where we'll take the train back to Marble Hill. At the Brewery, you’ll be able to have 5 beer tastings for $5 and optionally purchase lunch, too!

Here's the thing: this is essentially a meetup. You are responsible for bringing snacks, water, a BIKE and helmet (or you can rent one from Tread in Inwood). The tasting at the Brewery will be $5 for 5 pours and you can optionally buy lunch when you're there. 

08-1-1030x773.jpg

WHEN: Saturday, November 3rd (9-5ish)

COST: 

BASICALLY FREE if you have a bike!

$5 for 5 tastings at the brewery, plus train fare from Tarrytown to Marble Hill. You’re responsible for bringing your own bike and helmet (or rent from Tread Bike Shop in Inwood offers rentals by the day, so that may be your best bet!), snacks, water and you can optionally buy lunch at the Brewery.

Email hello@hanumanhealthclub.com with any questions!
