If you’re one of the 80% of adults who suffer from lower back pain, then this is the class for you. It will help improve the spinal inflexibility that’s a major cause of this kind of pain and dysfunction, and restore a more natural and pain-free range of movement to your spine.
You don’t need to be particularly fit, but it will help if you have used a Reformer before.
More chilled-out than usual, but no less effective. You’ll focus on stretching the muscles that often shorten and contribute to poor posture, and on breathing, to increase movement.
The range and intensity of these sequences will become increasingly challenging as your mobility and control improves. Because of the emphasis on breathing and precise, controlled movement, it might not feel too demanding at the time. But in a day or two, you’ll realise just how hard you’ve actually worked.
You’ll leave with an improved posture, standing taller and looking leaner. Your spine will be more mobile, spreading the load through it more evenly, just as nature intended.
The increased flexibility will also improve strength and balance and help you challenge your muscles more in our standard classes (it’ll help you squat deeper for example).
And if you play sports, you’ll see performance benefits though greater rotational power.
