12 Episodes

The factors of modern day life (think excessive sitting and general living stress) lead to compression in our bodies and unhelpful shifts in our core engagement. Essentially we begin to develop bad habits that lead to dysfunction, pain, and injury. Our bodies respond by functioning at below optimal (even poorly) and don’t look how we’d like them to. So even though we might be exercising, if we’re not engaging our core correctly, no great changes are happening.

This series is about building that solid foundation we need to rebuild our core and create a happy, healthy + strong body.

We’ll go over how to breathe in a way that builds strength + freedom, manage abdominal pressure, and continue to build strength throughout.

OUTCOME: better posture, core stability, and a new stomach.
