    Core Stability Training DVD

    Craig Liebenson
    Core Stability training, derived from Yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates, focuses on the importance of your body’s form during a workout: your position and alignment will be emphasized on all your repetitions.  This DVD focuses on the quality of movement, which will help you avoid the injuries associated with modern strength training and will allow you to enhance your performance.  Emphasis is on the functional usage of muscles, providing the body with an envelope of stability.  Each exercise will teach you how to perform the movement, where to feel the stretch, and will identify the typical mistakes and how to avoid them.

    Specific methods covered include abdominal brace, dying bugs, the bird dog, side bridge, planks, curl-up, superman on the ball, bridges, hamstring curls and more. The DVD also covers common health club mistakes and shows you Dr. Liebenson’s version of popular methods from leading experts from Europe and North America.

    Flexibility, Yoga Training, and Ergonomic Postural Advice DVD

    Craig Liebenson
    Flexibility, Yoga Training, and Ergonomic Postural Advice DVD contains three parts: Yoga and Respiration, Ergonomics and Posture, and Flexibility and Yoga. Yoga and Respiration focuses on respiration, the foundation for all exercise. You’ll learn to combat shallow breathing that comes from work-related stress. In the Ergonomics and Posture section, you'll learn how to manage the stress of working in an office environment and how to overcome the postural effects that come from extended sitting.  Flexibility and Yoga focuses on good breathing techniques and perfect posture. This section will help you learn to achieve good breathing and perfect posture, important to maintain a stress-free lifestyle.

    The signature of this DVD is its emphasis on diaphragmatic breathing.  Alongside proper breathing advice, awareness of functionally centrated postures is emphasized in all movements.  Workstation ergonomics, postural micro-breaks, and spine sparing hip hinge techniques are all described.  Finally, rather than simply show stretches for a myriad of muscles functional dynamic, release techniques are shown for the most common stiff regions – the hip and mid-thoracic spine.
