Join us for a foam rolling demo presented by Sequoia Wellness fitness staff. The demo will be an interactive demonstration to learn a unique form of bodywork/stretching that has the ability to improve posture, increase flexibility, reduce stress, tension and pain. Foam rolling has also been shown to improve blood flow to muscles, and can also improve joint range of motion.

Registration for our next wellness challenge begins Jan. 29! "There is No Time Like the Pleasant - Relaxation Challenge" will focus on work-life balance and stress, two of the most predominant concerns in the workplace today. In this challenge, participants earn points for engaging in simple relaxation techniques throughout the day. Taking just a few "me" minutes to stretch, breath deeply...or even laugh..has proven to recharge the batteries, and improve overall work performance.
