Don't Just Wish for a Strong, Healthy Body-
How well do you breathe? Let me count the ways.
I'm not talking about breathing techniques- in this mini, I'm teaching you about breathing mechanics.
You'll learn to expand your ribcage all the way so you can:
- maximize your lung capacity
- strengthen your rib muscles
- improve mobility in your spine
- reduce strain in your upper back
- take strong, stable, full breaths!
So a better question is, how well do your lungs and ribs work? Let's find out!
Get Your Glutes Going
Dead Butt Syndrome (aka Flat Ass Syndrome). It's a real thing, and it's a real problem!
Do you really know how to activate your glutes? Would you guess that it's not actually your glutes that need to activate first?
I'll teach you the first steps you need for good activation in this mini course.
Everything Starts in the Gut
All health and disease can be traced in some way to the state of your gut- it's that important.
How healthy is your GI tract? How efficient is your digestion? How communicative is your gut-brain? (Yes, that's really a thing!)
Almost everyone has some issues with this, at least occasionally. How do you start repairing and building a strong, functioning, healthy environment? I'll show you the first steps.
Detox- What, When, How
Do you need to detox? Do you already detox? What IS detoxing??
Learn the what, when, and how of supporting your body's natural and ongoing detox systems.
Your body is a cleaning machine, given the right resources, and you can assist this by:
A) Aligning your tubes
B) Flushing your lymph system
C) Giving your whole elimination system a break
D) Helping with some manual work
Reversing and Preventing Tech Neck
We live digital lives, and I've got some analog ways for you to recover from all that screen time.
Did You Know:: 1 inch of head shift feels like 10 pounds of EXTRA pressure on your neck muscles! This is in addition to the almost 10 pounds your head already weighs- ouch.
The more you can do to realign your ears overtop of your shoulder, the better you'll feel all the way down your movement chains to your feet.
Go on an adventure into your neck muscles, find out where you're the tightest (hint: it's probably not where you think!), and spend a couple of minutes saving your sanity with some simple stretches.
Facial Tension and Pain
Do you experience face tension or pain?
You may have heard me talk about being tongue-tied (literally, not metaphorically. Everyone knows how I can talk!) Or maybe you know the dreaded TMJ, or your jaw is a little wonky, or you do the reach-and-squint at your computer.
However you come by it, we’ve got so, SO many tiny muscles from the temples and forehead to the throat and collarbone, and when they get angry life gets miserable.
This Mini Course teaches you the First Steps to releasing not only muscles but also fascia, the connective tissue that helps keep your head on your shoulders. You’ll also learn a delightful light self-massage technique to restore proper fluid flow down out of your face and head.
Feet and Pelvic Floor Connection
Here’s the fun thing about this connection: the nerves that come out of your spine to innervate your pelvic floor are the same ones that go to your feet!
So while it can be difficult to know exactly what is happening in your PF, we can easily see what’s going on in your feet- just take off your shoes and look.
Feet give us some information about the PF. Begin improving the strength and mobility of your feet, to improve your pelvic floor, right away.
Low Back Pain from a Weak Core
All the crunches in the world won't help your back pain if you can't engage those ab muscles with the rest of your core.
Your core is much more than what we think of as your "abs"! All too often I find people's abdomens:
and generally all uncoordinated and gawky- instead of engaging reflexively, automatically, as much as needed, on demand.
How does a weak core impact your low back? How do you get the core to support your back again? That's what this mini is all about!
Achey Outer Hips
This is a particular kind of ache- if you know it, you know it!
In my experience (personal AND professional) it comes on especially when you're trying to sleep on your side.
Sometimes it's the top leg aching as it slopes down towards the bed, and a pillow between your knees might help, a bit, temporarily.
Sometimes it's the bottom hip where it presses into the mattress and then you have to change positions, often many times during the night.
