What is Bowspring?

Bowspring is an emerging paradigm of movement that calls for whole body engagement by utilizing a precise, alignment template. The Bowspring alignment lends to a fierce and functional body composition by supporting the natural curves of the body and increasing agility. The specific movements of this practice command mindfulness and accountability to the self, which means you are in control of what you want and what you get out of it. With regular practice, Bowspring benefits the mind, body and heart by way of pain relief, more power for movement, increased focus, positive mindset, strength of will and so much more.

Practitioners have access to a diverse, online, Bowspring community around the globe. This community is a safe space, where practitioners understand and embody the 3 pillars of Bowspring: mindfulness, compassion and accountability.

Bowspring works with the body as a tensegrity system (tensegrity = tension with integrity), by balancing tension members in the body rather than relying on compression (stacking bones). Bowspring stretches and strengthens fascia, the elastic connective tissue enveloping the muscles and organs in our body, which supports longevity, joint health and works to bring the body back into balance through equal tonus. Bowspring can be practiced anywhere, with no equipment necessary as a form of resistance training that builds stamina.

Bowspring is a modern alignment template for movement. The Bowspring alignment is maintained throughout the practice and is informed by the most recent information on optimal body mechanics for healthy, long term movement. Bowspring is a mindful practice that offers benefits similar to any physical practice which promotes a mind and body connection. What is unique about Bowspring is that the posture held for movement becomes a lifestyle. This makes it accessible throughout your daily routine, reinforcing the sustainability of the practice. Bowspring can be applied outside of the designated workout time in a busy schedule, which ensures you are consistently taking steps in favour of your health and physical wellness. I am certain you will love taking classes, being challenged and connecting with likeminded humans in the Bowspring community; however, my hope for you is that you take the principals of this practice into your daily life and fully embrace the benefits Bowspring has to offer.
