Hypopressive is a term that describes a decrease or reduction of pressure. Hypopressives are a series of exercises composed of various poses in positions which combine the use of myofascial chains and neurodynamics and breathing techniques which will enhance posture and decrease intra-abdominal pressure on the pelvic floor and other tissues surrounding the core.
The IHC – International Hypopressive Council, was founded in 2019, by a group of international hypopressive exercise trainers.
This group of trainers previously represented the IIHPT, headquartered in Vigo, Spain and had been actively training health professionals, fitness instructors and sports coaches in hypopressive exercise based on a method devised and created by Dr. Tamara Rial, PhD. Upon being released from our contracts with the IIHPT, this group decided to unite to continue our work, researching and studying the effects of hypopressive exercise, promoting this method, training health and exercise professionals and educating the public on the benefits of this technique. Our Hypopressive Educational Series takes the method to the next level and so doing, enhances the physical activity potentials for everyone.
