People who practice Baseworks will experience how the foundational principles provide a solid support to explore other fitness/ movement disciplines and or systems of yoga. In this way the Baseworks system has not been designed only as an exclusive practice method, but rather also one that opens the doors to varying possibilities.
Foundational or core strengthening utilizes muscles that stabilize the spine, abdominal region and pelvis so as to enhance an understanding of body mechanics. These muscles are used to some extent for all physical activity.
The core is the center of skeletal foundation, energizing an understanding of symmetrical alignment. Without a strong core, eventually symptoms arise that weaken stability, taking away from the greater potential of the physiological and energetic benefits of movement in relation to posture practice. Strengthening the core muscles of the spine improves postural alignment, relieves compression of the vertebral disks, increase flexibility, extension and rotation, stimulating circulation and blood oxygenation, as well as boosting the immune and nervous system functions.
Pelvic floor muscles deepen foundation by stabilizing the pelvis. The pelvis is shaped like a bowl that has a muscular lining for various purposes. The PFM are crucial to keeping the bladder suspended, the organs of the pelvis secure, and maintaining stabilization of the two sides of the pelvis together. The intrinsic/extrinsic muscles of the thorax, diaphragm and the abdominal muscles are utilized for stabilization of the spine and pelvis. Stabilization of the pelvis is crucial to maintaining the static equilibrium of the spinal column even during your everyday activities.
Baseworks directly relates to all aspects of this stabilization, enhancing energetics. Developing a Baseworks practice is a steady combination of equally building strength, flexibility and sensitivity.
The Baseworks Practice syllabus presents pose variations and sequencing broken down into varying levels of proficiency for the purpose of building prerequisites in movement, flexibility, and strength.
