Exercise Strategies for Better Movement, Core Stabilization, Athletic Performance and Back Pain Prevention


In this exercise workshop, you will learn how to move better, stabilize better, perform better, overcome back pain, and prevent injury. The information you will learn is inspired by the principles of DNS (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization), one of the newest and most exciting approaches to exercise and rehabilitation on the planet.

Class Objectives

  • Introduce the concepts of diaphragmatic breathing, intra-abdominal pressure, dynamic joint alignment (centration), and core stabilization
  • Learn why the developmental “milestones” are the blueprints for ideal movement patterns in adults
  • Learn how the deterioration of flawless movement patterns in infants/toddlers lead to the development of musculoskeletal pain in adults
  • Evaluate and identify any faults in your ability to perform diaphragmatic breathing and intra-abdominal pressure separately and simultaneously
  • Evaluate and identify any faulty movement patterns/compensations you have acquired from pain, past injuries or bad coaching
  • Learn corrective exercises to improve your ability to use diaphragmatic breathing and intra-abdominal pressure with movement to train better movement habits
  • Learn exercises in developmental “milestone” positions to create a better movement platform for higher level exercises, recreational activities, and sports
  • Learn a daily exercise routine you can perform to move better, stabilize better, feel better, and perform better
