ABOUT MOVEMENT TRAINING
What is Movement Training?
At Annex RMT, we focus on the Alexander Technique, an effective therapy used to change movement habits and improve posture, as well as the core-building Pilates Method. This gentle approach was developed to re-educate the mind and body through a series of movements to encourage the body to use muscles more effectively.
Movement Training yields many benefits, including but not limited to:
Reducing stress and repetitive strain
Reducing the possibility of personal injury
Enhancing athletic and artistic skill
How We Treat
Alexander Technique lessons and Pilates sessions are done wearing comfortable clothes that allow freedom of movement. Work is done in a variety of positions, including lying on a massage table, sitting in a chair, standing and walking. You will be guided gently through various movements, helping to align your posture and become aware of your habits.
Pilates sessions will take place using a mat on the floor. You will be provided specific exercises to work on at the clinic and at home. Strengthening your core muscles is fundamental to achieving a healthy posture and reduction in muscle strain and imbalances.
What Are The Goals of
Alexander Technique helps you to become more mindful of your movements and to identify and reduce harmful tension in the body. These lessons aim to promote freedom of movement, balance, support and coordination.
Pilates practice combines well with Alexander Technique, strengthening your core and providing effective exercises that can be done easily at home with just a mat.
What to Expect During Your Visit
