Hypopressives Class

One Agora is excited to announce that we will be hosting the first training in the Midwest for Hypopressives Level 1 Training coming January 2018.

The HYPOPRESSIVE® techniques were created in Europe by Dr. Marcel Caufriez in 1980, with the goal of helping postnatal women prevent and recover from pelvic floor dysfunction such as incontinence and prolapse. Tamara Rial and Piti Pinsach, from Spain, while working alongside Marcel, recognized the need to create a fitness program that would help in the prevention as well as restoration of pelvic health, beyond the clinical setting. This Hypopressive technique has become so much more than just a technique limited to those with pelvic floor dysfunction, the objective was to develop a global approach to core health through the creation of an abdominal and rehabilitation technique that would benefit the whole core system, and eliminate the injuries caused detrimental pressure towards the pelvic floor which is specially advised for women with pelvic floor dysfunction.

On January 19th, we will offer a 2-hour workshop to learn about 4 poses and how to incorporate these into your daily regimen. This class is open to anyone and especially good for pelvic floor dysfunction, incontinence, core strength, and athletes. This class if from 6-8 pm and $75.

Then January 20th and 21st, we will have a two-day workshop for professionals to learn this technique. We highly recommend that physical therapists, chiropractors, yoga instructors, and personal trainers take this course. This technique is popular in Canada and Europe and making its way to the United States. It truly changes people’s lives!

Hypopressive® – Low Pressure Fitness: What Is Really Happening
Hypopressive – Low Pressure Fitness addresses the whole body and it’s integrated relationship with the different systems. Unlike other approaches that work to correct one segment at a time, this unique program offers improvements in one’s overall health, in as little as 20 min but don’t be fooled into thinking this is a relaxing breathing technique.

Hypopressive® – Low Pressure Fitness Restores Respiratory patterns
The Respiratory muscles are used to help create a vacuum affect resulting in a decrease of pressure within the thoracic, abdominal, and pelvic cavities. The diaphragm acts like a plunger, influenced in its more relaxed state, it is then lengthened during the apnea and rib expansion phase, causing the vacuum.
It is after the final exhale when you end in an apnea (temporary cessation of breathing) and commence what we call a false inhale (when you mimic taking a breath without letting air in) It is this false breath in combination with the activation of the diaphragms antagonist muscles, serratus & inspiratory muscles that cause the automatic functional engagement of the abdominal and pelvic body while decreasing pressure. This decrease in pressure provokes a suction and elevation of the connective tissues, offering a myofascial release while decongesting the pelvic cavity. It is this synergistic, reflex co-activation of the core/postural musculature (transverse abdominals, pelvic floor muscles, multifidus and diaphragm) that trains this integrated group of muscles to function together. Core function can be greatly improved by correcting ones breathing habits.

Hypopressives® Technical Postures
Hypopressive – Low Pressure Fitness training however is far more than just a breathing technique. If you have ever tried this technique you know this to be true. There are specific technical patterns that have been created, each pattern has been studied to facilitate this decrease in pressure and amplify the hypopressive effects, raise the internal organs and achieve better posture.

The postural tensegrity (a word that combines ‘tension’ and ‘integrity’) developed within each pose creates a more balanced and functional body as a whole. If there is movement, pulling or pushing in one area energy is sent through the entire body and everything moves creating a global visceral, fascial, and muscular stretch. Within the poses there are specific areas of pull, lengthening, pull or axial shift forward in order to achieve this response and in the end, you are left with better alignment, continuity and an overall improved carriage. When you improve one’s posture you are also helping to improve one’s breathing ability and vice versa all of which creates a core body that can move synergistically and manage the stresses of everyday living in addition to the physical activities we love.

Anyone can attend the Friday night workshop.  It is a wonderful way to be introduced to the technique and you will leave with four amazing poses.  Friday night is $75 and there is a non-refundable 50% down payment due at the time you sign up to secure your spot.  There are limited spots.

However, must be a certified practitioner (ex. yoga instructor, chiropractor, physical therapist, personal trainer, etc.) to attend the 2-day certification workshop and be CPR certified.  After you sign up and pay, we will contact you via email with all the information that you need and to verify CPR and background.  Full amount of $750 is due at the time you sign up.  We do expect to fill up since this is the first certification class offered in the Midwest.  Sign up today by clicking the button below.
