Most of us hold stress in our upper backs, shoulders and hips. When we get stressed, our muscles contract and shorten and get very tight and weak. The most common complaints are headaches, back pain, neck pain and low energy.
My Personalizing Pilates/stress relief MP3 workout focuses on these specific areas and teaches you gentle exercises that help the muscles stretch and relax. Once the muscles relax, you’ll notice that the stress has been reduced.
The Personalizing Pilates/stress relief program includes three files to help you. First is a free Ab Tutorial MP3 audio file that teaches you how to use your breathing to activate and strengthen the deepest layer of your abdominals. These muscles are important because they support our spines (and flatten our tummies). In the MP3 workout, my voice guides you through easy-to-follow, gentle exercises that focus on mobilizing your tight neck and shoulders and strengthening your upper back. You’ll feel much better after doing this workout just once because the muscle tension will start to release. Finally, for those of you who are visual learners, a photo-illustrated document is included that shows the exercises in the order in which they are taught.
This workout was created by and is taught by Sherry Lowe-Bernie, owner of Personalizing Pilates. Sherry is a PMA Certified Pilates Teacher, which means that you are entrusting your spine to one of the best Pilates teachers you can find. Sherry has over ten years experience teaching Pilates.
