OUR ESSENTIAL CORE
with Dr Monica Gauci (Chiropractor, Yoga Therapist).
Times: Saturday, Sunday, 10:30-13:00 & 14:30-17:30
There are many misconceptions about our core, what it is and what is required for holistic health, stability and strength.
Babies perform movements that suggest core strength without having yet developed their muscles! In order to have the stability that prevents injury and that enables us to build strength, we need a responsive core that we can adapt to the ever-changing environment of the various movements we continuously perform.
This work builds a solid foundation for beginners, is therapeutic for those with injuries and is essential for those wanting to advance their practice to more challenging and complex āsana.
¨ Rediscover what is needed to have the stable, responsive core you had as an infant!
¨ Learn about the 3 diaphragms and how to maximise their efficiency.
¨ Understand the important differences between your intrinsic and extrinsic, expanded core.
¨ Discover the engine that drives your intrinsic core and the secret to stability and building strength.
¨ Learn specific exercises to assess and revitalise both our inner and expanded, functional core.
¨ Explore the extrinsic core and how to most effectively build strength where it matters most.
¨ Discover your core wisdom, how to move from the inside out and integrate your limbs into your centre.
¨ Mantra and chanting are integrated into each Workshop appropriate to the topic being taught.
¨ Where there is an anatomical/theory base to the Workshop, PowerPoint presentations are used as a visual supplement to aid students to better understand and integrate the information presented.
¨ A digital manual with the mantras and PowerPoint presentation are supplied.
¨ There is a strong practical component to each Workshop, which makes the material relevant and applicable.
¨ A pilates ball is included in the materials of this workshop provided by The Breathing Space.
