Marina is offering a ZOOM Masterclass in September – where she will take you through this technique and how it can be used by your clients. This will be followed up with a more in depth, hands on IN PERSON HYPOPRESSIVE training at Cobham Pilates in November for those who are interested bu you will gain a good understanding of this technique from the ZOOM Masterclass itself.

WHAT IS HYPOPRESSIVE EXERCISE / LOW PRESSURE FITNESS?
Hypopressive Exercises are designed to work the involuntary fibers within your pelvic floor and abdominal muscles. The technique focuses on generating a low pressure (Hypopressive literally means low pressure) within the abdominal and pelvic cavities.

Hypopressive Exercises includes a series of techniques which requires different positions, movements and contractions of the diaphragm muscle during exhalation. In more descriptive terms. we manage to literally suction in our own guts, resulting in a negative pressure on the pelvic and abdominal cavity, which causes a reflex toning reaction (a reflex muscular contraction) on the pelvic floor and abdominal muscles.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HYPOPRESSIVE EXERCISE / LOW PRESSURE FITNESS?
The flabbiness and weakness of the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles is the normal in today ́s society. Flabbiness is responsible for multiple problems related to the feminine urogenital tract (urinary incontinence, painful relations, prolapses) back issues (lumbago, lumbar correction) and other aesthetic problems (swollen stomach, abdominal flabbiness).

Through Hypopressive exercises we will obtain a “reprogramming” of the abdominal and pelvic floor musculature. Benefits, both therapeutic and aesthetic, include”:
-Tone deep abdominal and pelvic floor muscles
-Enhance posture
-Prevent all types of herniation (abdominal, vaginal, etc.)
-Regulate and/or improve respiratory parameters
-Prevent and/or reduce the symptoms of urinary incontinence
-Improve the management of intra-abdominal pressure
-Improve venous return
-Prevent musculoskeletal injuries
-Improve limbo-pelvic stabilisation
-Enhance quality of life and well-being
