On June 9th I hope to become a certified Pfilates instructor. There have been changes in the way we approach Ab Rehab at Core Expectation, and Pfilates has been a big part of that.
The most recent research as well as our own experience in the field has shown that the Tupler Technique, while effective, is aggressive and may create other problems through the core. These imbalances can include too much intra-abdominal pressure on the pelvic floor muscles resulting in a dysfunction, as well as lateral spine and thorax rotation ROMs reduced, as in chest gripping.
Kim Vopni of Epi-No Canada will be giving the course along with the creator, Dr. Crawford on June 19, 2012. The course is available for fitness professionals only and I believe it is booked full. I am so very excited to attend! Not only will I have another completely practical certification I have the opportunity to spend an academic day with my team, learning! How fun is that :)
