Join Debra Dent, world known Physiotherapist in this 2.5 hour seminar learning how to breathe correctly and learning to improve your Athletic Performance and your posture. This research backed seminar will give you the tools to improve your breathing, your muscle length, your posture.
If we don't breathe properly, the rib cage can be altered and become dysfunctional with poor rotation and poor breathing patterns. This can markedly affect athletic performance. Our diaphragm functions in posture and respiration and if it becomes fatigued with heavy breathing brought on by exercise, it can alter our circulation to the extremities as well as our control of our trunk. Constriction of blood flow to the extremities can cause cramping and fatigue.
Dysfunction of the respiratory system, trunk muscle imbalances, core inhibition and weakness, tight IT bands and loss of trunk rotation, all have significant effects on posture, trunk stability, and performance.
Discover the correct core.
Learn what will inhibit the core and how to facilitate an inhibited or delayed core.
Discover your core and improve your trunk stability by improving the function of the diaphragm and the other three vital core muscles.
