What is Foundation Training?

Foundation Training is a movement practice designed to restore the body’s natural order and put YOU at the centre of your health. It teaches your body how to properly support itself and move as nature intended. It was developed by chiropractor and movement expert, Dr Eric Goodman, to heal his own chronic back pain. Having refused spinal fusion surgery prescribed to him by several doctors, he managed to get himself out of pain within a year. Now, years later, Dr Goodman leads an active, pain free life and has developed an incredible series of exercises to help others do the same.

 

Thousands of people who were in pain with anything from sore knees and failing hips to bad backs and painful shoulders, have discovered remarkable healing through Foundation Training. The power of decompression and the restoration of correct movement make this programme a natural and effective alternative to heavy-handed medical intervention.

 

This programme is not a temporary remedy, but a systematic solution that offers long-term benefits. Practicing Foundation Training enables one to reach, achieve and experience incredible health and wellness.

⚬ The Foundation Training Sphere of Tension ⚬⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
sphere /sfir/ : a round figure with every point on its surface equidistant from its center.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
ten·sion /ˈtenSHən/ : either of two balancing forces causing or tending to cause extension.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The sphere around your hands is a balance between your fingertips pressing and palms pulling away. With the wrists in a neutral position and the finger joints unlocked, the hands work to maximize the volume of the imaginary orb inside it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But alas, there is more. There is a larger sphere braiding from your fingertips through the muscles of your arms, shoulders, and back. With elbows unlocked and shoulders kept in socket, each expansive decompression breath works to lengthen yet strengthen that braid. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How does your sphere of tension feel when you correct for the unlocking the joints of the fingers and elbows? What about when you engage the lats to bring the shoulders in socket? What about when you really work to create space between every single finger? These details will help wake up pathways that integrate your body as a whole. Try it out and let us know!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Firstly we would like to take this opportunity to thank all our clients for the support and engagement we have had for our online classes, courses and private sessions since the start of the Lockdown. It has been absolutely fantastic and we are so grateful 🙏

According to Scottish Government update on the Covid-19 we are entering into Phase 1 and personal training can commence on a one-to-one basis outside. At this time, however, we have decided not to start any in person sessions until we can safely allow clients into the Aberdeen and Edinburgh studios to continue to safe guard ourselves and our clients.

We hope you all understand at this time and can continue to join us online. We will regularly review the current situation as the lockdown eases and hope to open both studios to the public again when it is safe to do so.

Stay well.

Kat and Mora x
