We use both breath and movement to free up your most efficient movement pattern
Our first session will be a “get to know your body” session, where we gather an intake of information regarding muscular imbalances, joint range of motion, motor control, etc. Some of the aspects we might take a look at include but are not limited to:
POSTURAL ALIGNMENT – Assesses the resting tonicity of your muscles and joint integrity in a static position
BREATHING – The function of the diaphragm has a profound impact on whole body function, posture, and muscle energy transfer
CORE STABILITY – Looks at how well your core activates in both static and dynamic environmental situations
FOUNDATIONAL MOVEMENT PATTERNS – How well is your joint range of motion and muscular stability working to give you endurance through the day or to be ready to receive high performance training.
SHOULDER MOBILITY – Are your shoulders open enough to give you good core stability and those sexy back muscles?
ROTARY STABILITY – Addresses proper energy transfer and stability through the torso
MUSCLE SEQUENCING – Addresses muscles firingpatterns in the correct order to product easy, efficient movement through your joints
Once we get to know you a bit, we start to address any imbalances and movement patterns based on our findings. Keep in mind, as with any process, the process of (re) discovering your body with your trainer isiterative. We build and continuously work on foundation before (and during) high performance training. We blend together pilates principles with functional personal training to create customized programming.
