How We Teach?
PILATES . GYROTONIC. GYROKINESIS
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 designs 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 awakened to its movement needs, the areas of improvement become apparent. We all have fitness goals.
Let’s feel the connection. And practise towards integrated movement where the various muscle groups in our body work together as a team to maximise exercise performance. When this happens, we begin to feel how one movement in our body affects another. We will practise 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 improving 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. 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 needs 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.
