Dancers ~ Traditonal Floor-Barre ~ with Pilates & Nerve Knowledge
To Strengthen & Stabilize Your Body For a longer Dance Life
Classes & Private Sessions ~ For Students & Instructors
Exercising with Spinal & Joint Misalignment ~
It is believed that exercising makes the body strong and healthy. This is true if your joints are correctly aligned.
If they are not aligned your Nervous System finds a new group of muscles to take over so you can keep dancing. This is called, compensating. These muscles and ligaments take on a job they were never meant to do and soon weaken. This creates incorrect placement, pressure and pain in different areas of your body.
If you are dancing with hurting or painful joints &/or back pain...
instead of helping your body, you're more than likely hurting and weakening it even more.
Traditional Floor-Barre with Pilates & Nerve Knowledge ~
These classes give you the knowledge, understanding and tools to calm your nerves instantly so that your muscles stay fluid after an incident happens in class or in performance. This enables you to continue dancing as if the incident never occurred. Learning how to calm your nerves and therefore your muscles, gives you more control over your own general health, creating a stronger, more flexible, longer lasting body.
These classes are preventative for bodies that are not injured and
restorative for injured bodies to re-set and calm the nerves to heal and remain strong.
Why Re-Program or Calm Your Nerves? ( click here to review ' How the Nerves Work Plain & Simple')
Most dancers spend the entire day getting warmed up and loose. Then go home, go to bed to wake up the next morning tight, stiff and for many bodies...experiencing deep joint pain. Then go to class and take part of your day again getting loose and warmed up then to go home, go to bed and wake up stiff, tight, and in pain again. and on and on...
Though this experience is so called 'normal' for most dancers, it is not right. The body is tight stiff and in pain due to over use. Your nervous system never has the time to calm down. Dancers in general, especially professional dancers exercise way too much.
This Traditional Floor-Barre technique focusing on the nerves teaches:
How to help calm the nerves down for bed so the dancer can wake up in a loose,
fluid and if not pain free, a less pain filled body.
Ways the dancer can take less time warming up.
Prevents over exhausted muscles before a performance and/ or rehearsal.
Enables dancers to be in their field longer, dancing in a healthier, stronger body.
For Dance Instructors: this knowledge will help you get more out of your dancers in less time.

1 Hour ~ Private Sessions:
As Lori watches you move, looking for your body’s areas of weakness. She will take you through a group of dance warm-ups, moving very slowly to activate your smaller and medium muscles and tell your larger muscles to stop working. The slower you move the more muscles have to work and therefore more nerves have to communicate. The exercises done slowly will be the ticket to your dance longevity. They will be specific to your needs, to do on your own, in such a way that will specifically re-program your nerves and balance the muscles to correct your joint & spinal placement.
