Hypopressive Exercise – Core & Pelvic Floor

 

Hypopressives is a system of postures and breathing techniques that can be practiced at home with no equipment. The term ‘HYPOpressive’ refers to decrease or reduction in pressure, whereas most traditional exercises, including abdominal exercises are HYPERpressive – they increase internal pressure. What happens as a result of the pressures we are subjected to from gravity, everyday activities, physical training and other pressures, depends on an individual’s ability to handle that pressure. But pressure will always find the weakest point and this can be the cause of medical conditions such as urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and hernias.

Hypopressive training re-programmes the core muscles, including the pelvic floor, which are vital in managing pressure consciously and sub-consciously. The method cannot be learnt from a video due to its simple but very technical nature. You should only try to learn this from a qualified Hypopressives instructor.

Hypopressive exercises increase the resting tone and involuntary function of the core muscles. In order to learn Hypopressives individuals need expert instruction. The protocol is to train consistently every day for 10-15 minutes a day to build a habit. Get in touch to find out more or see below a link to some incredible testimonials:
