Inner Warrior St. Louis Wellness Weekend

August 4 - 6, 2017
St. Louis, Missouri

 

Make the decision to focus on your health and wellness! Join us for a weekend of innovative movement, nutrition guidance and camaraderie at the Inner Warrior Wellness Weekend.

Inner Warrior Participants

We'll explore the body's response to stress and grief, teaching you how to release muscle tension, self-doubt and patterns of negativity. Through hands-on workshops, workouts and discussion, we'll share and practice skills for healthy living. Because the movement we'll be doing is for all ages and fitness levels, the Wellness Weekend is open to all surviving adults who want to connect with the best parts of themselves.

After the weekend is over, we'll have an ongoing community with coaches and peers to keep us accountable of our goals and to be a source of encouragement.

Summon your Inner Warrior, and let us help you fight for the best version of yourself. 

SCHEDULE

Day 1: We'll start by learning how to find inspiration in ourselves and in each other. You'll get an overview of the weekend and a chance to ask questions.

Day 2: The second day starts early with a run/walk and information on stretching, warming up and cooling down. We'll move into sessions on supportive core, mobility and strengthening exercises. We'll round out the day with discussions of habituation, motivation, supportive nutrition, hydration and injury prevention.

Day 3: A run or run/walk session starts the day. Afterward, we'll move into discussions of goal-setting to identify small changes that will have big impacts. We'll talk about self-care and accountability, identify supports within your friends and family, and discuss strategies for cutting out negativity so you can be the person you want and need to be. Our closing session will leave you sweaty, proud and determined.
