The MBB concerns itself with closed-chain exercises
The MBB curriculum is prefaced on the principles of PNF stretching. PNF helps to significantly strengthen your body and sharpen the mind. It helps produce a better strength-to-flexibility ratio, while at the same time, helping to eliminate many of the body's muscular imbalances. Classes are for all levels including beginners. In 2017, Yoga International Magazine has officially endorsed the Mighty Body Band™ as being "indispensable" to one's workout regime"
The MBB may be used statically and/or dynamically
Unlike the TRX®, the MBB offers not just the ability to work in a static mode, but it also offers the ability to workout dynamically. What does that mean? The MBB has multiple bungee cords build right into its design. Its very easy to use and allow people to work through the seven different forms of strength and stretch cycles.
It's not just about handles... the MBB has a built in body loop which may be used around any part of the body to help stretch and strengthen your entire body.
All MBB classes are based on the belief that our mental and physical health is interrelated, and should be worked and conditioned together. All of the classes at Yoga Bent attempt to coordinate breathing and physical movement; improve focus and concentration. All MBB participants regain control of their body and mind.
What is MBB Yoga...
Whether you're into yoga, pilates, weight lifting, running or cross training fitness; you'll find our studio and products to be indispensable to your health and practice. For example, the MBB is prefaced on the principles of PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation), which helps to strengthen your bodies neuromuscular system— all of which is necessary to build and maintain a stronger and healthier body. The PNF strengthens your bodies nervous system relative to the muscles, tendons and bones of the body. It allows for a better strength-to-flexibility ratio.
In other words, the PNF (via the MBB) allows for smarter strength and flexibility, while, at the same time, enhancing coordination. The MBB helps to condition and re pattern the matrix of your body's overall fascia.
By getting in touch with the sensations of tension and motion of the MBB, you feel the release and unwinding of fascia (and tight muscles) occurring as you become consciously more attuned and aware of both the static and dynamic movements— all occurring in the present moment. As the constriction patterns that were once holding your fascia in place now awakens to the gentle gliding motion, a sense of awe is experienced. You become more present to the opening and releasing of muscular tension and discomfort. The MBB allows for a sense of safety and confidence to co-exist as you allow your inner awareness to guide and challenge your existing skill level and take your “practice” to new and deeper levels. So, whether you're a professional athlete, a once a week fitness enthusiast, or any combination thereof, you'll be amazed at results of the MBB and PNF-360™. In 2017, Yoga International Magazine has officially endorsed the Mighty Body Band™ as being "indispensable to one's yoga practice."
