What is low pressure fitness?
The term HYPOpressive refers to less pressure. This form of exercise reduces pressure to the thoracic, abdominal and pelvic cavities. Our traditional ‘core’ exercises very often increase the intra abdominal pressure which then pushes down onto our pelvic contents. This is not the direction we want our pelvic contents to go. The hypopressive exercises help to improve pelvic and abdominal muscle tone, increase the length and the strength of the postural muscles and improve respiratory muscle function.
How did the Hypopressive exercises begin?
