This series uses strength and flexibility exercises to strengthen abdominal and back muscles, develop pelvic stability and build abdominal control. Participants create a mind/body awareness through focused, slow, careful and controlled exercises that improve posture.
No more back pain – having a good posture means no more back pain. Slouching can add strain to muscles and put stress on the spine. In this class we perform exercise that counter your poor posture and slowly bring it back to normal.
Look good and feel confident – have you ever noticed people walking down that street that look confident? This is probably because they have a good posture. A good posture can make you look taller, slimmer and more successful when you sit and stand tall.
Reduce stress – Stress not only causes poor posture, but also actually perpetuates it! Adopting an upright posture when stressed can maintain self-esteem, reduce negative mood, and increase positive mood compared to a slumped posture. Therefore, sitting upright might be a simple strategy to help build resilience to stress.
I am currently finishing my B.S. in Exercise Science at Loyola University Chicago and afterwards I will be attending National University of Health Science to study chiropractics. I originally started out as a nursing major at Loyola but switched about halfway through, and I learned that exercise and fitness related studies are where I felt most comfortable and the most passionate about. I originally was most interested i calisthenic exercises and on different ways to work out posture, particularly during the normal day, but now I will try and learn as much as I can about the different ways and modes to exercise with, and even participating in research studies to better learn them. With all of that, I’m hoping I can combine that fitness knowledge with what I learn in grad school and apply both fields
