Firstly you will need to find a qualified instructor to learn Hypopressives.
Hypopressives is taught on a 1:1 basis over 6 sessions. A detailed history and a number of assessments are carried out on the first session as well as the breathing technique and some postures. You will learn the other postures alongside the breathing in subsequent sessions. On the final session the assessments are repeated to observe for any changes and improvements. Each session will last between 45 – 60 mins. The the first session may be slightly longer.
During the programme you are advised to practice the techniques for 10 – 15 minutes daily. This is to enable you to get the most out of this programme and to get the desired results On completion you will have learnt a routine which can take between 10 – 20 minutes. Once you have reached a maintenance phase (where you no longer have any specific symptoms but don’t want the problem to reoccur) we recommend you practice 2-3 times a week.
Hypopressives can also be taught on a ratio of 1:2. In this case the first and last session will take longer to allow for the assessments to be carried out.
