Aligning the bodies joints creates the foundation for better athletic performance, less pain, energy optimization, and adequate breath patterns. Repetitive stress injuries can be avoided by small positional changes and effective biomechanics. Ergonomic analysis and postural adjustments can prevent un-needed wear and tear on the body and create a more efficient being.
External respiration is the act of breathing. Efficient breathing in the correct position is a pillar to optimal health. Breathing with the ideal muscles ensures proper exchange of gases and nourishes the body. The breath patterns shape the position of our bones, the alignment of our joints and the resulting muscles ability to respond to reciprocal, alternating movements and pressure changes within the body.
Psychologically, integration is the coordination of processes in the nervous system, including diverse sensory information and motor impulses. When muscles are re-educated during bio-mechanical re-alignment, breath practices and yoga, integration of brain-body ensue. PRISM's 5-step program aims to bring body, mind, and soul into more neutrality and balance.
