Designed as a healthy training alternative, hypopressive fitness is focused on posture and core stabilization.
What is Hypopressive Fitness?
You will be instructed to maintain good posture, and steady breathing as you aim to vacuum the abdomen. The vacuum changes pressure direction in the body by drawing the relaxed diaphragm up and into thorax while the abdominal wall is passively drawn in.
What are the benefits?
Hypopressive fitness practices have an immediate effect on visceral mobilization. The exercise teaches you the ability to raise pelvic organs through a suction effect in the abdominal and pelvic region. This practice avoids excessive demands on intra-abdominal pressure. The core stabilization as well as breathing and posture control encourage strengthening for a solid core and pelvic region. These areas are crucial for baseline strengthening and encourage improvements in almost all parts of the body.
