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.
Dr. Konrad Koczwara grew up in Chicago on the northwest side near Jefferson Park. He attended St. Patrick high school in his early years and later was accepted into Loyola University’s exercise science program. After completing his four-year degree he wanted to continue to follow his passion for health and wellness and decided to apply to Northwestern University’s Physical Therapy program. While in the process of attaining his doctorate he realized that there is a huge problem going on in the healthcare industry right now. The general public has a clear lack of knowledge on preventative medicine and exercise in regards to health. The solution in the medical field now is to use the “band-aid strategy”. This hurts people in the long term and does not “fix” their problems. These healthcare problems helped fuel his passion for using exercise as a preventative medicine. Dr. Koczwara’s long term goals are to change the way health insurance companies operate. Instead of paying for expensive medications, joint replacements, and other “band-aids” they should pay for preventative strategies throughout a person’s lifetime. These strategies would be implemented by degreed health professionals such as physical therapists, personal trainers, and exercise physiologists.
