Low Pressure Fitness will return for Term Four on Thursday 2 November 2017.
Low Pressure Fitness (LPF) has landed at Aquamoves and will give you the tools you need to reduce your waistline and prevent and improve pelvic floor dysfunction.
You’ll also tone your abs, improve your posture, decrease anxiety and increase self-confidence in the process!
Pregnancy, lack of physical activity and bad posture can lead to muscle weakness that creates excessive intra-abdominal pressure that impacts negatively on the back, abdomen and pelvic floor.
LPF focuses on reducing this pressure to achieve more toned and flexible muscles, improved breathing and a healthier spine.
This innovative postural and respiratory training system combines myofascial stretching, hypopressive and neurodynamic exercises together with the latest teaching methodology in physical exercise science.
What's involved in a typical class?
- Basic strength exercises
- Breathing warmup
- LPF Poses
- Relaxation and meditation
The stretches, strength training and breathing components of the class will be led by the instructor from the group fitness stage.
The remainder of the session will allow the instructor to be mobile and interact with participants, with the purpose of improving their LPF technique.
