Sample from Week 1
PILATES & SLINGS MYOFASCIAL TRAINING
A very warm welcome to your movement education. I’m so delighted that you could join us on the mat. Within this 8 week repertoire course, you will learn a wide range of well-balanced myofascial exercises. I aim to make things as simple as possible.
The progressive step-by-step approach of the training will allow everybody to practice on his or her own skill level. This will hopefully allow you to replicate the exercises in the comfort of your own home, as well as understand how your body moves in every-day activities.
Contemporary Pilates has taken the classic Pilates principles, together with modern science of movement and holistic anatomy, to create exercises that can be built upon and designed safely and efficiently at any level.
Slings Myofascial Training is a holistic movement concept that has been incorporated into the Pilates repertoire. The elaborate fascia-focused training aims for structural integration, functionality and inside-out wellbeing through conscious movement. High aspirations that come with short-term and long lasting benefits.
The term ‘Slings’, also known as anatomy slings, are various types of tissues involving fascia, muscles, ligaments that are interconnected with other and provide stability and mobility to the body.
Anatomy Trains is the body map of Myofascial Meridians which offers a science-based and application friendly Anatomy concept that can be applied to various movement methods (and manual therapy). Anatomy trains groups the individual muscles into functional lines throughout the body. While traditional anatomy is static, Anatomy Trains is dynamic and interconnected like the human body, which is in constant motion.
When combined, these methods create dynamic stability; functional strength and movement ease; multi-dimensional movement enhancing body resilience; activation of the body’s self-healing powers; improved co-ordination and psychosomatic wellbeing; tissue elasticity, glide, adaptability and responsiveness.
