Overview

This class explores what movement the spine is capable of and why it is the key to feeling forever young.

This practical and informative class will focus on the different planes of spinal movement: sagittal, frontal and transverse and it will cover the three types of backbending; traction, contraction and leverage with: mobility work for the spine, shoulders and hips (backbends focus). This will be combined with anatomic and physiological education about the scapulae and the pelvis to enable more effective pushing and pulling patterns. Different drills every week.

With each class Alex's goal is to guide participants through improving their body awareness, flexibility and strength to equip them for the years to come with a greater range of motion and strong resilient bodies.

Each of Alex's classes address the important balance between strength & flexibility, to prepare the body to move better for longevity and reduce risk of injury in all types of movement practice.

Progressions/ regressions are taught to suit all levels.

Alex utilises everything a human already has to develop strength and flexibility, he will show attendees how to use the mind, breath and body in ways aligned to natural movement, no machines or weights.
Workshops are engaging and challenging, people are pushed out of their comfort zones and are often confronted by physicals limitations caused by lifestyle choices or incorrect technique, from the office worker to weightlifters Alex's method is for everyone.
