California Los Angeles - Knee Care Clinic

Hello! My name is Mia Svenson! I'm a Los Angeles Ambassador for Girls Who Hike, and I'll be leading this event. 

The first ten members to arrive will receive special giveaways at this event! 

This special event will directly address common issues surrounding knee pain caused by hiking. Christine Vaughn Bauman of Perfectly Balanced Body is a personal trainer who specializes in corrective exercise with a background in clinical massage therapy. In addition to her impressive resume, Christine is a hiker herself and has summited Mt. Whitney! 

Christine will be taking us through a series of exercises that will help us rebalance how we hike, reactivate muscles and relieve and prevent knee pain. 

This event will take place at one of the following locations (pending permits and weather) 
Cloverfield Park: 2600 Ocean Park Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90405
Porto Marina Beach: Porto Marina Way x PCH, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272

There are two time slots available, both are one hour long and have a maximum class size of 20 people. There will be one hour between each time slot, so you'll have time to ask Christine questions! Please keep your questions related directly to knee pain. (If we're lucky Christine will work with us for future events related to hip, back, and ankle pain). 

SLOT 1: 1:00-2:00 PM
SLOT 2: 3:00 PM-4:00 PM
