Gaining strength doesn’t have to be complicated. In fact, it is often the most simple workouts that provide the greatest benefits to your body. Aileron Wellness’ Primal Movement 1.0 class is one of the best sessions to explore your body’s most natural flow of strengthening movements. The Primal Movement classes are based on the basic movement progressions learned in the early stages of human development. Through a strong concentration on form, the strength and stability needed for primal strength are brought into focus. Though, these Primal Movement classes do much more than just assisting in strength and muscle activation. They help to increase overall flexibility, further reducing the occurrence of sports injuries by re-educating our body on mind-muscle connections.
The best view for a primal class
Overlooking Sentosa Cove, Aileron Wellness’ Primal Movement 1.0 class couldn’t have been in a better location. Coming to sit on our yoga mats under a wide gazebo, the class was walked through the origins of Primal Movement. The importance in injury prevention, increased flexibility and posture improvements are just a few of the secrets you’ll have to book in to hear about.
Core strength, posture and transitions: The Basics of Primal Movement
Our instructor Brendan began by incorporating core strength and stability in a number of foundation poses explaining these elements in every Primal Movement position. Combining this with crawling and standing transitions, the class began to create a sequence of primal movements. Each pose, though simple, was extremely effective. The ability for each move or pose to activating specific muscles and reprogram mind-to-muscle connection is really incredible.
Primal Movement 1.0 classes aim to question why we move the way we do. What are the foundation muscle movements in everyday activities? Eventually, Primal Movement devotees develop the ability to turn on and off specific muscles, eventually making specific activations second nature. Here is where you reap the benefits of muscle tone, strength and control.
The foundation movements of most workouts
Body weight training such as Primal Movement is among the most effective and efficient styles of training. Its ability to build strength and overall fitness is one of the many reasons for its huge popularity. Aileron Wellness’ Primal Movement 1.0 class was a completely different style of workout I’m used to. I found it was somewhere between body weight training, pilates, yoga with also a little bit of tai chi. The class was intriguing and informative with the purpose, muscle activated and benefits to the body explained with each move. The Primal Movement 1.0 classes are a perfect way to start your Saturday morning, running every weekend at 10 am.
