What Is Hypopressives
Hypopressives is a system of postures and breathing techniques that can be done at home with no equipment. The method cannot be learnt from a video due to its simple but very technical nature. You should only try to learn this from a qualified Hypopressives instructor.
The term ‘HYPOpressive’ refers to decrease or reduction in pressure, whereas most traditional exercises, including abdominal exercises are HYPERpressive – they increase internal pressure. Specifically, with Hypopressives we are referring to pressure related to the thoracic, abdominal and pelvic cavities.
The short answer to who would benefit from Hypopressives training is EVERYONE! Hypopressives should be seen as the foundations for all other physical activity as well as a stand-alone form of exercise. However, the function of very specific groups of people could be improved substantially if they were to learn Hypopressives.
We recognise that Hypopressives is new to most people. There are costs associated with getting trained; generally speaking, the longer the training the greater the cost. So, we have devised workshops which provide a basic theoretical and practical framework for people who want to dip their toes in the Hypopressive water but aren’t ready to commit to being fully trained. Consider them as the starting point for learning Hypopressives, whether you’re a member of the public or a fitness professional.
