Join me on Saturday May 16 for another spinal health and core stability class. I am adding some new material to the workshop. On top of teaching the basics of the Foundation Training system, I will go through numerous self-care techniques that help with back pain.
Have a look at a TED Talk hosted by the creator of Foundation training:
Bodies are designed for free and varied movement. Yet, we sit virtually motionless for days on end, hunched over computers, playing on iPads, reading a great new book, or even gathering for hours with friends engaged in sedentary activities. Too often, this daily inactivity is only interrupted by ongoing repetitive motion that causes our bodies to break down even more. And many of us never learned proper movement habits in the first place. It’s little surprise, then, that chronic physical pain and unnecessary breakdown in our bodies is an epidemic in the United States.
Foundation Training can help you achieve these goals:
Stretch and tone areas of your body that are commonly connected to back pain
Identify and isolate specific muscles that are directly related to stabilizing your spine and easing pressure to your joints
Re-learn basic movements and re-balance your muscles
Become and stay free of back pain
The key to spinal stability is to bring our muscles back into balance. Muscle imbalance occurs when certain muscles get weak and others compensate or get too tight; this puts uneven stress on joints and connective tissue, and ultimately causing these structures to break down and hurt. Basic movements like lifting a child or walking, not to mention more dynamic activities like running or dancing, end up damaging the body. Foundation Training utilizes a series of simple exercises, stretches, and movements to help the body move more functionally, correct and heal muscle imbalance, and promoting a life that is pain-free and full of vitality.
