This is a HYPOPRESSIVE® Training System  youtube video blog page of sorts that will be updated with videos with regards to  HYPOPRESSIVE® Training.  The first two act as an introduction to the Hypopressive® technique with my personal story as well as the difference between the Hypopressive® exercises and traditional core exercises.

Like any exercise program it is important to work with someone who is qualified to teach to help prevent injury!
