Hypopressives is a system of postures and breathing techniques that can be done at home with no equipment.
The term ‘HYPOpressive’ refers to decrease or reduction in pressure, whereas most traditional exercises, including abdominal exercises are HYPERpressive – they increase internal pressure. Specifically, with Hypopressives we are referring to pressure related to the thoracic, abdominal and pelvic cavities.
The method cannot be learnt from a video due to its simple but very technical nature. You should only try to learn this from a qualified Hypopressives instructor. More information can be found on the UK Hypopressives website.
