What We Do

You can follow different programs on our practice classes. Group sessions are motivating. If you have no time to attend you may chose a program to practice alone wherever you are. And sometimes you feel you'd like individual guidance and full attention, then you ask a coach to support you through individual programs.

Here you can find the most common abbreviations that we use to characterize the focal point of an exercise session in between warming up and relaxation.

 When you don't stand a chance at all for group classes, order the book, or follow one of the support videos for a short practice.

HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
Takes 20 minutes. 8 repetitions of 30 seconds high intensity and 90 seconds relaxed workout. Can be done 2-3 times a week so you give enough time to your fast twitch muscle fibres to recover.  If you do HIIT right, pulse goes up to 220 minus your age. For stress managements, we aim to bring heart rate up to 130/min. which if we manage, has a great impact on the adrenal glands and the reproductive hormone household.
It increases Human Growth Hormone production, promotes anti-inflammatory myokines (Dr Doug McGuff),  reduces age-related telomere shortening, prevents cardiovascular diseases, improves brain functions and cease depression.
A common misconception among many people is that cardio works out the heart muscle. Unfortunately, what you're really working with cardio is your slow twitch muscle fibers. You're not effectively engaging the anaerobic process of your heart. HIIT in the contrary engages your fast and super-fast twitch muscle fibres, which has many beneficial effects on the metabolic systems in your body.

AVIVA Method

The Aviva Dance, this revolutionary self-healing set of exercises, is rapidly gaining popularity across the world. Simply because anybody can learn it at any age, or condition yet it’s very efficient.

By ensuring an increased blood supply in the lower abdomen, it delivers an increased amount of hormones, nutrients and oxygen to the reproductive organs.  This stimulation, strengthening and nourishment of the muscles and organs result in healing of several health problems, naturally balanced reproductive hormones and health.

It takes 15-30 minutes twice a week once you learned the movements.  If you come and practice in groups you can top it all up with other beneficial elements of the Endcrine Gymnastic, such as  the Ring Muscle Techniques, Yoga, and High Intensity Interval Training.

There are several choreographs for the Aviva Dance. There are the basics and the Progesterone stimulating versions.  They all can be done by any one at any stage or age.

18 Steps - 30 minutes, basics

AviShort - 15 minutes basics

EndoNew - 15 minutes basics

EndoHeavy - 4 minues basics

AviPro - 30 minutes, Progesterone stimulating

 

 
Ring Muscle Techniques

Professor Y. Goldhammer M.D., Head of the Department of Neurology in the Israeli Tel Hashomer Hospital says about these exercises (Secret Of The Ring Muscles  / Healing Yourself through Sphincter Exercises; Paula Garbourg) that "Activation of the sphincters -the muscles surrounding the various orifices of the human body- is based on the observation of Mrs. Paula Garbourg, that all the sphincters work in unison. The activity of one muscle is likely to affect the activity of another muscle, even one located some distance away. Relying on this principle, it is possible, by performing systematic exercises, to strengthen weak muscles and, for example, to correct irregularities of posture.

 
Soft Belly Breathing
It reduces tension in the neck and shoulders, massages the heart and activate the parasympathetic nervous system (responsible for rest and digest) through the phrenic nerve that runs down both sides of the diaphragm, which results in reduced stress hormone levels (e.g. cortisol and adrenalin) in the blood.
