You want to be healthy, you want to move in a pain-free body. Yet, did you know that many of the ways in which we habitually move, including the exercise we do, puts strain on your joints and stress on your heart? On top of that, many of the aches and pains and diseases that we assume are a natural part of aging, are actually rooted in our postural habits.
So how do I move better to reduce and prevent pain? How can I restore health and vitality?
Restorative Exercise™, created by biomechanic scientist Katy Bowman, is a movement program designed to restore health through optimal skeletal alignment. Many of our common diseases have mechanical causes, therefore, the way we move affects all aspects of our health. By focusing on building the foundation of health through biomechanics, Restorative Exercise™ will help you to reawaken your muscles to their appropriate length, improve your circulation, minimize wear and tear on your joints, and repair damage to your entire body.
Using alignment points you will discover:
- What your body should be able to do.
- What your body is currently able to do.
- We then utilize specific movements and exercises to rebuild and restore total body health.
What is biomechanics?
Biomechanics brings anatomy, physiology, physics and geometry together in a comprehensive study of the human body. Biomechanics is the "nuts and bolts" of your human machine. It is the guidebook to better understanding how everything that we do (or don't do) will affect the whole system. In fact, biomechanics is the missing link in many different healing modalities. If you have tried 'everything' and only find short term relief, but not lasting change, realigning your body could be the key to feeling strong and healthy and pain free.
When you move your body the way it is designed to move, you will improve:
- Back pain, neck pain, knee pain, foot pain
- SI joint pain
- Pelvic floor disorders (prolapse, menstrual cramps, hemorrhoids, urinary incontinence, prostate issues)
- Digestion issues
- Cardiovascular disease
- Poor circulation
- Foot pain (bunions, plantarfasciitis, hammertoes)
Restorative Exercise™ is not just about learning to move, sit, stand and play the way your body was designed to, but becoming more mindful in the big and small decisions you make daily and how it can impact your health and well-being. Even something that seems like a small decision like the shoes you wear, makes a big difference!
While workshops and group classes are a great way to start you on the path of whole body rebuilding, private sessions are specifically geared to your own unique needs.
Some people enjoy 1-3 initial sessions for an alignment assessment and a personalized program. Others enjoy on-going sessions to further refine, clarify and simply love that one-on-one feedback. Whatever you choose to do, you are choosing to take your health into your own hands.
