Hypopressive training

Hypopressive training

«Hypopressive training» is also known as «Low pressure training». «Hypo» means less, «pressive» comes from pressure, so less pressure. And this is exactly what happens during this training: the pressure in the abdominal cavity (intra-abdominal pressure), is reduced.

In contrast, most traditional training methods increase our intra-abdominal pressure and can weaken our pelvic floor, unbalance the interaction of the abdominal muscles or change the position of our abdominal and pelvic organs.

«Hypopressive training» uses posture and breathing exercises to strengthen the deep muscles. Although this also happens with many other forms of exercise, there is one thing that sets hypopressive training apart from everything you have learnt so far: A special breathing technique is used to create a vacuum in the abdomen. This creates a negative pressure and at the same time a suction effect, which leads to a lifting of the internal organs via the fascial traction lines.

This is a real game changer and could be the solution to your discomfort and pain!

Training can prevent and improve the following symptoms:

  • Incontinence
  • Pelvic floor problems
  • Organ prolapse
  • Diastasis recti
  • Hernias
  • Bloating, constipation
  • Back pain
  • Depression (also postnatal), mood swings
  • Poor posture

«Hypopressive training» is also breathing training, as it trains the diaphragm and thus improves oxygen supply and lung function. This is why athletes who want to improve their performance also benefit from «Hypopressive training» as a supplement to their sport.

On a psychological level, «Hypopressive training» can reduce stress (the central nervous system is calmed), reduce feelings of anxiety, boost self-confidence and increase energy and concentration.

«Hypopressive training» is a training without pressure or impact and therefore also ideal for women after giving birth – either as a supplement to a postnatal course or instead of one.
