A bodywork practice…where an individual can integrate alignment, breathing techniques and anchoring techniques in order to create length and space in spinal area…therefore, helping to decompress the spine. Create strength in musculature while in a lengthened state. There is a heavy focus on “core work” utilizing decompression breathing. This technique, really gets the diaphragm, pelvic floor, transverse abdominal and other deep myofascial muscles working together. These deep muscles are usually the weakest because most people have quit breathing big and deep long time ago. Most people today are so inactive and breathe shallow from the belly or the chest only. These deep myofascial muscles are so important for activation of the superficial muscular system, and for stability in our pelvic spinal area. Foundation Training, will correct and improve movement patterns. All the reasons listed are why Foundation Training is so useful for everyone.
Foundation Training is a practice…just like yoga, Pilates, tai chi etc. Foundation Training, has a heavy emphasis on breathing and the posterior chain. Foundation Training is easy to learn, but has to be practiced. Once you know some of the basics…a short 10 minute session will do wonders for the body! A short one minute Founder at your desk will also do wonders for your body. There are no rules on when, where or how long to do it. It’s just you and your body learn how to lengthen, strengthen, move and feel better!
