Distributed Activation And Micromovements for Relaxation

Aug 17, 2022 - Aug 17, 2022
UNIVERSAL
Virtual

You may be familiar with techniques such as Progressive Muscle Relaxation or just the general idea that it is easier to relax a muscle after you have intentionally tensed it.

Baseworks takes this approach to a whole new level by combining Distributed Activation with Micro Movements.

Distributed Activation (DA) is a state when as many muscle groups as possible are intentionally co-contracted at the same time at low intensity.

Micromovements (MM) is a technique of low-amplitude explorative movements within a body part.

In this VS, Asia will explain how to use DA + MM for relaxation and why this technique is effective. Then, most of this VS will be dedicated to practicing Baseworks forms, which use this technique the most to achieve deep relaxation.

Because it is such a simple technique, you can then use DA + MM whenever you feel particularly tense.

This VS will be approximately 30% theory and 70% practice.

What are virtual Sessions?

Virtual Sessions are a “live” educational format offered on the Baseworks Practice Platform.

Whereas the Online Practice Sessions are designed to provide the opportunity to develop your practice through repetition, the Virtual Sessions are designed to provide real-time feedback and insight, which can then be re-applied during the Online Practice Sessions.

The level of interactivity in the Virtual Sessions is dependent on the interest/involvement of the participants and may vary from session to session.

Each virtual session lasts from 60 to 90 minutes.

BASEWORKS Research Associate & Co-Developer | BASEWORKS Practice Certified Instructor | BT2 | MSc. Human Genetics | PhD Biotechnology Asia holds a Master of Science in Human Genetics and a PhD in Biotechnology. She has been involved in projects related to the effects of stress on learning and memory and alongside her research and development for Baseworks, she is now studying the pro-cognitive effects of medium-chain triglycerides. Her role as Baseworks co-developer is both to map the method applications onto known neurobiological mechanisms in order to improve the method’s efficacy, and to “translate” the pioneering applications in order to map them back onto common categories in exercise physiology, other movement practices and everyday life.
