I’ve never had to suffer through or develop through pain, I have developed through ever changing curiosity to movement.
I find movement very invigorating and never get tired of it. I love connecting the elements and unsticking movement to create momentum, this way creating grace in space.
My clients get “addicted” to their weekly classes, as well I get addicted to see their movement and progression.
We are travelling together the journey of movement, together we go forward in time.
Movement is natural for the human body, we are made to move. Today’s way of working and living is not giving the body the opportunities to move enough in various environments, various planes and with various intensity.
Monotonic movement can lead up to restricted movement strategies (professional athletes, runner training for marathon etc.), the body might stop using certain movement patterns due to a trauma to tissue or the body have chosen a movement strategy which is excluding some movement patterns. Any of these situations might lead up to movement restrictions or over use of tissue which can address itself as pain. There might be anatomical reasons for movement restrictions, but also lack of movement or over stressing a muscle or intramuscular tissue (fascia) can lead to lack of mobility in different areas of the body
reach your optimum balance and understand your potential
Movement requires space and tissues needs sufficient amount of oxygen for good function. In Method Putkisto classes we concentrate to start an effective yet relaxed breathing pattern which is used as one tool to enhance the stretching work done during the class. Through aligned stretching and movement the connective tissue (fascia) found everywhere in our body regains its natural glide. This results in smoother, more accurate and free movement giving the body feeling of easiness. These classes are suitable for everybody, they are very effective as recovery training for more serious athletes.
It is important to have enough strength in the muscles furthermore it is equally important that this strength is functional and that the movement done is going through the body as if the force and tension are not evenly distributed this can cause restrictions or pain in that specific area or project elsewhere in the body (headache, joint pain, excessive tiredness of muscles etc
In TheRoomStudio the movement repertoire follows Pilates inspired movements (training is mainly done on Pilates apparatus but also on the floor), but other movement strategies are woven into the classes. Each class is built from individual needs and addressing areas that the body is ready to change at that moment. Every individual have their own strategy to restart missing or forgotten movement patterns so no ready made programs are used, we are all unique and should be moved that way. Sometimes the lack of a certain movement pattern can come from a restriction, sometimes the body have never moved this way, it has used other moving strategies to create the same body position therefore these new movement strategies needs to be taught.
The work is based on activating and working on the whole functional system and sometimes we need to unstick the movement to achieve best possible result. Therefore manipulation can be used as part of a movement class. In TheRoomStudioFascial Release for Structural Balance is used to help the body to free movement patterns and immobile tissues. Using manipulation and movement combined allows us to integrate the newly released tissues to full movement.
The aim with this work is to strengthen the body so that everyday life gets easier. Many basic functions require enough strength in the body so that you are able to execute them (rolling in the bed without assistance, sitting up, standing up). At the same time with the strengthening work we align the body and teach the brain to trust the signals send by the receptors in you body. This way you will start to feel where your arms and legs are instead of having to look where they are. This is important skill if walking is one of the goals. I am happy to work with clients recovering from Stroke and/or Spinal Cord Injury.
