NMPT is a preventive training that can eliminate the harmful effects of repetitive or sitting job, reprogramming the brain to use the right muscles at the right level. This will rebalance the compression on the spine and other joints, preventing them to wear out early.
It’s a set of special exercises that consists of stretches and muscle strengthening movements. The aim is to activate muscles that lost their function and teach the nervous system to switch these muscles back; and relax the ones that are shortened and tense. Restoring the balance of muscles will lead to good posture and pain free movement.

Spinal problems have a naughty feature: they return from time to time, or they appear at a different section of the spine. The aim of NMPT is to prevent this with cutting out the wrong movement patterns that people have, years before the symptoms of spinal problems appear. NMPT is a powerful tool in preventing the development and recurrence of back and neck pain. It’s an up-to-date and straightforward way of protecting your spine. Based on research and scientific evidence, it helps you correct wrong movement patterns, therefore spine-and joint problems can be avoided.

You will be doing gentle stretching exercises in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. These exercises are carried out in standing, sitting and laying position. All the movements are safely supervised by the instructor and will be done at your own pace. You can always stop exercising if you feel any discomfort and you may be given alternative exercises if you can’t or aren’t recommended to do any of them.

  • If you feel healthy but would like to prevent back pain, herniated disc, tension headache and their consequences
  • If you have already suffered from herniated disc and would like to avoid having another one
  • If you want to enjoy exercising in a spine – friendly way
  • If you are getting older but still want to move youthfully
  • If you do not believe in “magic pills” but look for an effective preventive solution
  • If you are in an acute state of hernia
  • If you have shooting or radiating pain
  • If you have unstable medical condition

You can wear comfortable clothes (comfortable street clothes, gym or fitness clothing or anything that you feel comfortable in and doesn’t restrict you to do basic movements)

Bring a Yoga mat, Pilates mat or exercise mat, if you have one. If you haven’t got your own mat, I can lend you one for the class, but I recommend you to buy one, to be able to practice at home. If you would like to purchase a yoga mat, I have 10mm thick mats (the same type that we use in the class) available for £10.

If you decided to correct your posture, change wrong habitual movement patterns, suffer from musculoskeletal or spine problems

BUT:

  • You would like to progress at your own pace a and time,
  • You don’t like public classes,
  • You don’t feel confident to join an already going class,
  • You can have one to one NMPT session at your home, at your time.

The advantage of private session is that I can give my undivided attention to you and you can learn at your own pace. I can correct your moves before we move to the next one and you may feel more comfortable learning the moves on your own.

The advantage of the public class is that the price is cheaper, and you are encouraged by the rest of the students, which can give a good effect on your progression. And you can enjoy a good atmosphere with like-minded people, while doing something for your health. The number of students in one class is low, that always gives me the chance to make individual corrections as we go along.

Only private sessions available at the moment, at the convenience of your home.

If you would like to be informed about the class time and location, or don’t want to miss a new class starting, sign up to the NMPT newsletter here.
