It’s the Transversus Abdominis, a muscle the anatomy books refer to as “the abdominal corset”; and it’s [...]read full page

The continuous, repetitive movements gently persuade the body to “let go”, bringing fresh blood supply and [...]read full page
The back strengthening program involves use of the breath, and very little motion – similar to the abdominal program. The basic premise, is that by moving the body into an exaggerated position of corrected posture – and sustaining the position for about ten seconds, new sensory information is sent to your motor nerves, creating new muscle memory. Each exercises requires a holding in of the deep abdominals throughout, re-inforcing the strengthening of the abdominal wall.The four [...]read full page

The stretches in this section are slow, rhythmic, and continuous moving stretches, that allow your body to establish it’s own pace and degree of elasticity.
