how can mat benefit me?

communication between your brain and muscles is key if you want to work at your full potential and get the most out of your yoga practice. people tend to mask their weakness by developing strength in compensatory muscles. over time, this can be dangerous as these compensatory muscles are being asked to do jobs that they’re not ideally designed for.

key muscles can become weak or inflamed due to stress, overuse and injury. as a result, our body will eventually form compensation patterns, meaning those compensating muscles will dominate while key muscles stay weak. this is where a mat specialist from the yoga studio. comes in. mat is a uniquely effective way of identifying these weaknesses, correcting imbalances and restoring normalized muscle and joint function.

the mat specialist can help identify weak muscles or those that aren’t properly communicating with the brain. they can walk you through exercises that target those very specific areas and help your body distribute the workload more evenly among your muscles. you will benefit from muscle activation techniques if you are:

  • concerned about your overall health, wellness and muscle function.
  • experiencing chronic joint or muscle pain.
  • trying to lower your risk of injury.
  • interested in improving your overall strength.
  • looking to increase your flexibility.
  • victim to repeated injuries and don’t know why.
