The Hypopressive Method exercises produce a reduction in Thoracic, Pelvic, and Abdominal pressure through a series of postures and proper breathing.
The Hypopresive(aka Hipopressive) techniques were created by a Doctor of Science and Movement specializing in physical rehabilitation. Dr. Marcel Caufriez discovered through his dedication to pelvic floor re-education that traditional abdominal exercises after pregnancy increased the incidence of urinary incontinence, diastasis recti, prolapses, etc.
Since his discovery, Dr Caufriez developed the hipopressive method to prevent these health issues and many more. Dr Caufriez found out that this technique has multiple preventive benefits.
- Reduce waist perimeter
- Reduce back pain
- Improve fitness performance
- Prevent urinary incontinence
- Recover pelvic floor and abdominal muscle strength after pregnancy
- Improve lung capacity
- Improve posture and balance
- Prevent organs prolapsed
1. Reduce Waist Perimeter
The hipopressives contract the abdominal muscle involuntarily. These exercises make the tummy to look flat without effort and during a relaxed posture.
2. Reduce Back Pain
The Hipopressive exercises decompress the vertebra joint thereby reducing sciatic pain and lumbagos.
3. Improve Fitness Performance
The Increase in hemoglobin levels and the lung capacity created by the Hipopressive exercises generate an increase in fitness performance
4. Prevent Urinary Incontinence
Enhance the strength of the pelvic floor muscle and put back in place the organs responsible of adding pressure to the bladder which produces urinary incontinence.
5. Prevent Hernias
Hipopressives reduce the intra-abdominal pressure and generate a lumbo-pelvic protection.
6. Improve Lung Capacity
Increasing the oxygen level in the lungs are necessary for a faster recovery after working out, and for energy conservation during long physical activities avoiding getting fatigue quickly.
7. Improve posture and balance
Correct muscle imbalances by reducing the muscle tone of tight muscles, and restoring the muscle tone of weak muscles.
8. Prevent Organs Prolapse
The Hipopressives exercises pull back in place those organs that have been pushed down because an excess of the abdominal pressure reducing the risk of organs prolapsed.
How often should I do practice Hipopressive Method? Ideally Hipopressive is practiced 2 times a week for the first month, then every day.
What do I wear to my class? Wear fitted workout clothed, barefoot or wearing socks. Have your hair pulled away from your face and neck. This, so the instructor can see and perform any body corrections, so you can see faster results.
