Lola Lisón Sarabia is a dancer with an extensive background in performing. After many years of dancing on stage she switched her focus to assist coaches in various gymnastic disciplines all around the world. With over 20 years of experience in movement training and Pilates techniques she wanted to express her combined knowledge and that how Dynamic Body Method was born.
This technique combines dance exercises, yoga and other body posture disciplines. The main focus lies on body awareness while teaching each person how to move properly achieving the body-mind connection. This method is good for anyone who is looking for high-quality and controlled exercise, whether they have a musculoskeletal disorder or not. It relies on the most current physiology, biomechanics and ergonomic principles that effectively target myosfascial pain to improve and keep healthy joints.
“Anyone can do these routines to keep bones aligned and muscles flexible.”
This method is also directed to professionals and amateur athletes in sports such as golf, tennis or football. Sometimes having the best trainers and high-tech gyms is not enough to reach desired goals. One of the main causes of this is the lack of flexibility and correct posture.
Many Spanish and American actors, models and singers use Dynamic Body Method to improve the physical appearance, sculpting and lengthening of the body. It straightens the back placing the pelvis and shoulders in correct relationship, lengthens the waist between the hips and ribs and corrects the knee position. It can also improve the work of the vocal chords.
“A great gift for your body and mind.”
This method uses each persons capabilities as a starting point. As a result it solves bad postural habits and help to correct some of the physical problems such as column deviations (kyphosis, lordosis or scoliosis) as well as occasional low back pain and sciatica among others ailments.
Exercises are classified into two groups:
Parallel – based on the sixth ballet position. This exercises helps tonic muscles workout needed to rebalance and control the movement. It is very important to stretch this group, especially the back and the lower extremities as they tend to be shortened and tight more often.
Rotation and Opening – based on the first, second, third and fourth ballet position. The exercise consists of opening of the knees towards the toes to work the external rotation and abduction of the lower limbs, which are responsible for elasticity and flexibility.
“A person with an upright and good posture is more likely to be in a good mood; that positively affects your presence, uplift your self-confidence and attitude towards life in general.”
The sessions last sixty minutes using ballet bars, the center and ground floor. At the beginning, a simple explanation of the vocabulary that will be applied in class is given to the student. The first thirty minutes are reserved to warm up in the top pole of the ballet bar followed by switching to the lower pole for more intense exercise. The next part contains few exercises in the center of the room, with no bars involved, which makes work more intense and focused on coordination, movement and balance.
“It is very important to know how to live within our body.”
The rest of the class is performed on the ground floor. Focus is on working out pelvic muscles and abdominals while breathing with a lot of control. The last few minutes are allocated for relaxing and meditation.
Anyone can do these routines to keep bones aligned and muscles flexible. It is very empowering to know how to live within your own body. A person with an upright and good posture is more likely to be in a good mood and that positively affects one’s presence and uplifts self-confidence.
