The abdominal story is a story of the very dynamic and adaptive relationship between our rib cage and our pelvis, our upper and our lower spine, our arms and our legs. While this relationship is very much moderated in the front of our body by our abdominal wall muscles, those muscles can only be fully effective when cooperatively engaging with our spinal muscles and hip muscles, and even the muscles of our arms and legs. Indeed, the story is wonderfully complex.
Learn some highly effective and adaptive physical practices that can serve us towards ensuring that all these muscles are ready to do what we need of them. These practices can be done without equipment utilizing the constant presence of gravity and the intimate relationship of breathing. We will also analyze and coach traditional and innovative training practices for the abdominals using Pilates, GYROTONIC®, and fitness training methods.
