About the work -

Based on anatomy, I utilized principles emphasizing awareness of body movement. Back in the early 90’s I created an exercise program which views the body as a whole. In this way of work we integrate body parts to create harmony & fluent movement, emphasizing core strength and movement as well as dynamic posture.The exercise program teaches how to strengthen the body by contracting specific muscles while lengthening them, (eccentric contraction) using the elastic Thera-Band® that is favored by physical therapists.

My main purpose in this work, is to create an understanding of how to develop an “intelligent” body through proper breathing, posture, and the right exercise attitude. I hope to achieve this by emphasizing where to initiate the movement, and how to develop the exercise into an efficient movement that uses the correct muscles with the right amount of tension in them.

My main goal is to create strength and length in the body equally, so that both qualities support and balance each other. More than that, my vision is that the body will then be integrate efficiency and harmony in its movement. This is why I chose exercises involving muscle groups and integrating areas.

I have constructed the exercises so that they reach and work the muscles from different angles.
