Cris Cuzzolin is a Physiotherapist who coaches: Capoeira, Low Pressure Fitness, Posture & Movement.
Her sessions/classes are for all levels.
Physio Cris will instruct you to move in the ways your body is naturally designed to via stretches and exercises to strengthen your posture, stability and range of motion that will help your everyday activities. When moving you increase your circulation and bring mobility to your joints.
This is important for all ages and lifestyles, whether you sit for long periods, exercise regularly, carry children / heavy objects etc. Everything involves movement, but many people do the same routine everyday, creating movement patterns that are not natural or do not promote muscular balance (perhaps due to repetitive movements) and so the body gets stiff or develops pain.
Therefore practising movements that are realistic to daily life with more freedom and body awareness is key to your physical wellbeing. It’s an ideal complement to DSD Academy’s other disciplines – training your body to move safely can only help you be a better puncher, kicker, grappler, acrobat etc – all part of the training you can do through our various classes. as you increase your awareness of how your body moves through space and time (proprioception), your body will adapt to a better way of moving. By improving the neuromuscular pathways using natural movements that you were born to do, you are helping prepare and maintain your body for any physical activity.
