How We Teach
The first step in getting started is to activate. No matter who you are, be it the executive in an office, the housewife who runs errands, the fervent sports person who wants to improve performance or anyone who wants to keep on living an energetic and free life needs to activate our bodies toward better body awareness and effortless movement.
Daily functional movements like turning our upper body, stretching our hands and legs, walking up the stairs, squatting and more should not feel heavy or stifled. Instead we should be able to do these effortlessly as all human design are made to do so. Yet, many of us don’t feel the same about our body over time, especially into our mid- 30s and beyond.
Once the body is awaken to its movement needs, the areas of improvement becomes apparent. We all have fitness goal.
Let’s feel the connection. And practice towards integrated movement where the various muscle groups in our body work together as a team to maximize exercise performance. When this happens, we begin to feel how one movement in our body affects another. We will practice with greater awareness and understanding on how to optimise our strengths and weaknesses. The connection happens when we are able to feel and understand the connection in our body and strive towards improve mobility.
We have Activated. Then Connected at some level. Next, let’s build lasting strength and flexibility.
It is not one or the other. We need both. As a healthy muscle is one that can contract and release at the same time. And we want our body to be able to do that. Contract and release. Builds strength and flexibility. Move with control and agility.
Building this need to be an inside out job. The deep local muscles need to engage to provide one central system for the various moving muscles to move freely.
BEYOND MOVEMENT, like the name suggests, it is not restricted to just a "workout". We wish to share our passion on movement through more efficient strategy and proper biomechanical knowledge that affects the fascia system. This helps to improve long term health and wellness.
Whether you are experiencing pain or simply want to improve your physical and mental wellbeing, BEYOND MOVEMENT KL provides a healing and friendly environment to do so. BEYOND MOVEMENT is a place where people from all backgrounds can improve their movement, to be able to move freely, to move more efficiently, to move more gracefully etc.
At BEYOND MOVEMENT KL, we also believe in sharing knowledge amongst ourselves and with our clients. Our instructors are constantly expanding their knowledge and we are always on a lookout to bring in workshops and events by experts in the industry.
ABOUT OUR LOGO
We believe in simplicity, hence our simple logo, but it comes with a deeper meaning which we believe in.
The circle represents a free sense of movement. Movement that is unrestricted. The lines within the circle represent fascia lines. These fascia lines enclose our muscles, organs and other tissues in our body. And they create stability, resistance, power, flexibility, elasticity, and compensatory posture.
We look beyond the superficial movement. We try to look deeper, to see how fascia responds to stretch, exercise and movement.
Fasica is a newly found "organ" and how much do you know about fascia?
" The fascia system forms the largest system in the body as it is the system that touches all other system"
