Did you know dancers hold a lot of stress and muscle tension in their arms and shoulders? Holding poses and floor maneuvers take a lot of strength.
This beauty was in for her second cupping session to release the tension and tightness.
More and more athletes are turning to cupping for relief from overuse and injuries in their muscles.

So I have to recommend this to all @queenteam I was bought this vibrating @pulseroll for my birthday.
I was training for a half marathon and my calf tightening was a real problem. 😬

This vibrating foam roller is absolutely amazing and released the tension and tightness almost immediately (something normal stretching and foam rollers just couldn’t do - believe me I tried)
I always use it when I’ve been running 🏃‍♀️ as I know without fail it will ease the build up of lactic acid and muscle tension .
After this mornings lowerbody @alexia_clark the Doms have already kicked in - not very delayed in this case!! Just half an hour ago I got this roller out and sat on it...it was pure vibrating heaven 🤣 and my butt and legs already feel a million times better!
Now this was expensive but worth its weight in gold! It has 4 speed settings so you can choose the amount of vibration you need (today is 4!) and away you go! 👍 It massively speeds up your recovery process 💯
I am in NO way being paid for this - I just had to recommend it to you all. Please get it on your birthday / Christmas / any lists queens 👑 It’s AMAZING 😉💕💕 #pulseroll #doms #queenteam #dowhatyoulove #musclesorenessrelief #fitfam #alexiaclark #fitover40 #feelbetternow #strengthtraining #gains #lacticacid #muscletension #muscletightness

It’s summer and I’ve got nostalgia on my mind. Been perusing old pics and attracting languid conversations about all things life. I find it interesting that people (friends, students, clients, strangers) assume that flexibility comes easily to me.
#summervibes
In this picture from 2012, ya, flexibility was as fluid as that dreamy water (#bahamas) but that hasn’t always been the case.
#latergram
As a child I was the kid who’d plop to her belly and touch her toes to her nose. When I first tried yoga at 24 years old, however, I had lost most of that intrinsic flexibility. A decade or more of competitive tennis, long distance running, high intensity cardio and weight training had left my muscles stiff, tight and guarded.
#muscletightness
I vowed to myself to reclaim my child like range of motion. It didn’t happen overnight. In fact, it took a lot of time, effort and faith to unwind the limitations. In the process, I discovered so much about myself, let go of a lot of BS and radically changed my life. I never realized that reclaiming my flexibility would also be a catalyst for healing on many levels.
#healing
Over the years, I have turned to my yoga practice, particularly #asana, as benchmarks to gauge how life is moving through me. I vary my exploration but also keep a series of shapes (asana) consistent so that I can compare and contrast how each part of my body feels on any given day or decade lol.
#bodyscan
Some positions come and go, like the one in the picture. For example, after my c-section I wasn’t able to lift into locust pose, that pathway was simply gone. Over time, (though time alone is not a sure bet) I’ve earned my way back to locust, and to many other check point shapes I turn to like sentries of my inner terrain.
#awarenessiskey
Body awareness, persistent observation and assessment of physical sensations, has proven to be an indispensable life-line and source of insight, stability & strength. Obviously, this idea stretches far beyond any specific asana. Awakening space in the body awakens consciousness ... freedom of expression and compassion for the journey — illuminating the path inward and onward.

A clear picture to show you how a patellar displaced.
.
Non-contact patellar dislocation is more common to happen on children.
.
A shallow or uneven groove in the femur can make dislocation more likely.
.
Some children's ligaments are looser, making their joints extremely flexible and more prone to patellar dislocation. This occurs more often in girls, and the problem may affect both knees.
.
Children with cerebral palsy and Down syndrome may have kneecaps that dislocate frequently due to imbalance and muscle weakness.
.
Rarely, children are born with unstable kneecaps causing dislocations at a very early age, often without pain.
.
It requires effective prehab or rehab training on posture, balance, proprioception (本體感覺), muscle balance, muscle strength, etc. and then return to play.

A 12 yr old dance lover. Recently had low grade MCL strain and history of two times patellar dislocation. Here is a video of single leg drop jump test as part of the baseline screening before I start a sports rehab training program with her.

What can you see?

It’s important to remember to foam roll your adductors! By foam rolling your #adductors you will increase your hip mobility and prevent your glutes and squats becoming overly tight.

Yoga in regular practice has declined as of late with mountain biking & a bout of instability taking its place.
Gaining that strength leaves a body pretty stiff, so I’ve strayed from deeper stretches. & with my mind on the fritz, difficulty focusing through balance & breath encouraged that avoidance.
I’ve been worried my yoga flexibility & postural progress took a hit with the break—today was comfort it has not.
Overall things feel a little tighter (losing shoulder progress a bit 🤦🏻‍♀️), but not in a “if I do this, I’ll damage it” sort of way. The strength I’ve gained has helped my posture in poses & allowed deeper grounding.
I remember when I thought this pose was far out of reach. Quite honestly, this morning was only my fifth time practicing it since I weaseled into it last year.
Today it felt stronger than any of those other four times. Mountain biking wasn’t going well in a panicky state (nightmares throw me off often), so after five miles I hopped off the bike to climb rocks instead.
I found calm, held focus, paced breath, & flowed like that break never happened.
My soul is content. ✨

And break! A lot of detail but a lot of time practicing allows you to fine tune your technique by receiving feedbadk from your partner and from Dr. Omar as he walks around the room.

It's a sunny morning here in Toronto and we're right back into a day full of learning at the Trigenics PLUS Knee Course! First off, the lengthening assessment and lengthening procedure of the multifidus and lumbar erectors. Not only do you learn how to treat your patients with knee pain but learn why muscles that are often overlooked should be assessed.

Time to hit the sauna & relieve those aching muscles!
