Exercise Masterclass

Core and floor masterclass

Friday 23 June at 2pm

Here we are with the next masterclass from Alan Pearson, our exercise specialist who can help you gain a better understanding about functional movement patterns that engage, strengthen and provide a foundation for all aspects of movement.

Understanding movement patterns can lead to better posture, balance, coordination and stability. What we do with our arms and legs to perform different movements, needs a good core foundation! So, in this next masterclass we will be focusing on core and floor exercises.

Exercises that encourage better functional engagement of your core muscles will allow for better stability around your spine and pelvis. These can include movements of daily living from washing and dressing to walking and exercising.

This session will highlight the use of different strategies such as breathing techniques, core assessments, exercise progressions and regressions. These techniques will help improve how you stabilise against the stresses and forces placed on the body through different activities.

Session overview

  • Understanding movement patterns
  • Understanding the structure of the core
  • How to assess and practice core exercises
  • Exercise examples to practice
  • Questions and answers

This will be a fun, interactive and informative session, so please come along and get involved.
