An Introduction to Mobility – Functional Range Conditioning for Yogis

February 22 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmSGD60
  • This event has passed.

Overview

‘Functional Range Conditioning, or FRC, is a system of mobility and joint control training, which, unlike many current systems, is based in scientific principals and research.

Mobility, defined as the extent of controllable flexibility across articulations (flexibility plus strength), refers to the amount of USABLE motion that one possesses.

FRC works by systematically expanding the body’s ranges of motion, while simultaneously teaching the nervous system how to control the newly acquired ranges.

As our ability to generate force across the joint lessens, we lose the ability to actively control the range of motion. Thus these long, and short ranges are only accessible to us via passive means and are therefore essentially useless from a movement, functional perspective.  Further, because the longer and shorter ranges are not utilized, the joints tissues never develop the ability to absorb loads at those ranges leaving them susceptible to injury.

Thus through specific, and safe training methods we are able to ‘capture’ passive ranges of motion and convert them into usable, active ranges.  In addition, during the development of improved mobility, the system ensures the simultaneous development of tissue strength and resilience in the newly acquired ranges.

Who Is This For?

FRC is like a conditioning programme for athletes, dancers, yogis or anyone that has a movement practice.

About Trainer

Sean began his Ashtanga Yoga journey in 2012. Despite living a materialistically ‘happy’ life in Dubai, on a less superficial level he wasn’t satisfied. This triggered his spiritual exploration and his first stop was India.

It was there that he discovered a more fulfilling lifestyle through the practice of Ashtanga Yoga. He has since returned to India regularly to practise with his teacher Sharath Jois.

He received his Level 1 Authorisation in 2019.

Sean also follows a plant-based diet, which he considers essential for his personal health, his practice and the future of the environment.
