A gentle release of what can be a very uncomfortable area. Calves are notoriously tight and have a significant effect on how efficiently we are able to move. A very important release to ensure optimal function and alignment. This release focuses on the stuck stress in the calves with options to progress for those who feel that it is appropriate and tolerable to do so. This is a great release to do daily as a standalone sequence or use it prior to stretching to optimise the effectiveness of work you may already be doing.
A low back and sacroiliac (SI) joint release along that will provide relief from tension and pain in the low back and hips. This release also includes some techniques that will create some deep recruitment of the pelvic stabilisers which will allow the nervous system to learn how to more efficiently stabilise the pelvis. You should feel a tremor of these deep, hard to find muscles which turn on automatically. The goal is to allow the nervous system to find these muscles without the need for “sucking” or “scooping” or squeezing of the glutes – all methods that our conscious brain will use to incorrectly stabilise this area and in so doing create tightness and tension. Enjoy the work in this one and then enjoy the amazing release you have worked hard for!
