The gluteus maximus muscle is a major mover, weight lifter and stabilizing force of our precious lifelong bodies. Sitting is considered a microtrauma creating restrictions in the fascial system that can create weakness, imbalance and disfunction that create pain. Softening and strengthening the "glutes" can help reduce pain and improve the range of motion and balance. Learn a variety of exercises designed to release tightness and build strength and power in your pelvis. Practice functional strength patterns lifting and carrying your own weight that maintain vertical alignment in everyday living. 

Vertical

Awareness of posture is an integral part of health and creates  balance. Unwind, realign and reconnect with your body practicing movement and relaxation exercises to both soften, lengthen and strengthen the parts of the body responsible for maintaining vertical alignment. Based on the principles of Qigong, Pilates and the John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach®, these exercises will help you change the way you feel, look and move.

Staying strong, limber and mobile is part of healthy aging. Maintaining the suppleness and strength in your legs improves the ability to stand and walk without pain. Practice standing, seated and grounding exercises that improve the health of your muscles and joints so that getting up and down from a chair or the ground is easy. 

 

 

Attraversiamo  IMG_7751_3IMG_7751_3

Attraversiamo means "Let's cross over" in Italian. How many times, days, moments in our lives do we crossing over from fear and return to love? How many times do we leave homeostasis and shift to the Sympathetic Nervous System, fight/ flee/freeze mode? How fast can we melt our way back to homeostasis via the Parasympathetic Nervous System, rest and digest mode? Being stuck frozen in fear is unnatural. Pain is the body's alarm signaling the mind to take action. Train your mind and body to return home to homeostasis with breath, sound, movement, grounding and centering.

Attraversiamo is also a way to explain how the body moves naturally. Crawling, climbing and walking are contralateral movements on the sagittal plane that naturally cross the midline of the body. In order to move forward vertically, the right and left side coordinate. Crossing the midline (Attraversiamo) balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain and body. Crossing over creates balance. Explore mobility, stability and balance movement patterns on all planes and changing levels while crossing the midline. Attraversiamo!
