  • Core Corner – Down Dog Push Up
    Hamstrings, calves and hips can become chronically tight from endurance sports. Excessive tightness can then create pulling on the pelvis that robs power and results in spine, hip, and hamstring pain. This month’s core corner gives you dynamic mobilization for these structures. It also builds core and shoulder strength while allowing you to notice and gain control of your pelvis and core when the legs are active.

I have been utilizing the services of Balanced Movement Studio for years. I cannot say enough about Elizabeth and Brian. I am primarily a cyclist, road and mountain bike. I have had numerous injuries, particularly in the hip area. Elizabeth is very knowledgeable in structuring exercise programs that target the hip musculature, which has helped me to avoid injury. She is an adept educator, and helps you maintain proper form. There are times when I do push myself too hard, and Brian is there for physical therapy. His knowledge of anatomy and physiology, coupled with his personality, make him an excellent practitioner. He is patient and he listens to your concerns in order to get to the root of your issue. From there, he uniquely helps you to understand the issue and works with you to modify movement patterns to alleviate pain, and correct the problem. No matter your age, your activity level, or what type of injury you may have, BMS is an excellent resource.
