2018 Class Schedule:  

NEW! "Essentrics Workshop"

 

Save the Date: WED July 25, 2018

 

An incredible posture & dynamic flexibility opportunity!

 

What is Essentrics?

History & Philosophy: Former Candian Royal ballerina Miranda Esmond-White, her researcher daughter Sahra, and the Canadian National Sports Federation have created a unique flexibility program geared towards long lean muscles, excellent posture, and relieving pain. The Essentrics program appeals to baby-boomers, competitive athletes, and young adults alike. The techniques of Pulling Up and Turning Out are directly derived from ballet. Using arms overhead is unique to Essentrics. Essentrics techniques protect the hips, relieve back and knee pain, and improve circulation and alignment.

Who may benefit? Teens 16yrs + and adults of all ages interested in working on posture, balance, and lengthening muscles through the torso, hips, and pelvis through the breath and dance-meets-yoga-meets-tai-chi like movement. 

What can I expect? Classes are done primarily in standing and focus on specific range of motion, visualization, and balancing movements for a total body workout. Movements can be modified up or down and are gentle yet invigorating! Classes combine elements of PNF cross body patterns (P.T. jargon for spiral diagonal line work – key according to the research for unwinding fascial restrictions), yoga, ballet, and tai chi. Classes include a mat based strength and dynamic stretching component at the end.

What is Ms Fit Therapy®?

 

 

 

 

 

Pelvic support issues, such as poor bladder control, affect 25% of all adults (NIH 2007) and 30-80% of female athletes of all ages - high school through masters (Goldstick/Constantini 2012). Young male military veterans and endurance athletes are also at risk.  The faster the runner and the higher the jumper, the greater the chance of experiencing this often embarrassing issue.  Years of exposure to high impact/high intensity sports, asthma/allergies, and multiple pregnancies also increase the odds of pelvic support dysfunction.

 

Research states that up to 40% of those participating in common core exercise programs are NOT activating the pelvic floor muscles effectively enough to prevent and/or treat common dysfunctions! (Bo 2004)

 

Research based, created, and taught by CoreActive's owner, Ms Fit Therapy® (MFT®) is a comprehensive core stabilization + pelvic floor muscle training program that focuses on small class size and expert instruction.  Ms Fit Therapy® exists in order to educate on the three key elements for proper pelvic floor and deep core muscle activation: breath, alignment, and graded activation.  Classes focus on enhancing the brain-body connection to prevent lumbopelvic dysfunction and act as an excellent supplement to a current Physical Therapy home exercise program (HEP).       

 

Whether you’re a sometimes back pain sufferer looking to improve stability, a long-time athlete striving to improve performance, or you know (or think!) you are experiencing any of the embarrassing problems mentioned above - this core and pelvic floor interval program is for you!  Improve confidence, function, and posture in a fun and educational setting.

 

Notes: 

  • Classes are generally presented in an eight week series and are progressive in nature (i.e. each week builds upon the previous)
  • Classes are open to males & females ages 16yrs +
  • MFT® is ideal for active individuals at risk for trunk/pelvis/hip weakness or instability, pelvic organ prolapse, or bladder/bowel control issues
  • Beginner/Level I class is a great fit for those at least 6wks post-partum; classes are appropriate for participation during low-risk pregnancy
  • See pre-requisites listed for Intermediate/Level II MFT class - call/email with any Qs.
  • If you have never been seen before at CoreActive, then please plan to arrive 10min early to speak with instructor.
