Circlework Training offers a safe and inclusive exercise approach that is accessible to individuals of all ages.
Welcome to Circlework, where we integrate the principles of bio-tensegrity and activating and organizing the myofascial lines into our unique form of physical and mental exercise. I'm Chris Newell, and my goal is to train clients to cultivate healthy movement habits and develop resilient nervous systems through Circlework.
At Circlework we exercise for longevity, regardless of your age or your current fitness, we will do an assessment, set your goals and then progressively train towards those goals. Some goals will take more time to reach than others, but your safety and progress will always be my priority.
My approach to exercise is deeply influenced by the concepts of bio-tensegrity, which views the human body as an interconnected system of tension and compression, just like a tensegrity structure. In Circlework, we recognize that the bones represent compression elements, while the fascia, muscles, and ligaments act as tension elements. Embracing this structural understanding allows us to optimize load distribution, promote stability, enhance flexibility, and achieve a harmonious balance within the body.
Central to our practice is the activation and organization of the myofascial lines, the continuous pathways that interconnect muscles, tendons, and fascia throughout the entire body. By consciously engaging these myofascial lines during our exercises, we improve muscular coordination, optimize joint function, and foster an overall sense of well-being.
Circlework presents a comprehensive exercise regimen based on modern sports science and mindfulness techniques. Regardless of your age or current fitness level, we begin with a thorough assessment to set personalized goals. Progressively, we work towards these objectives, prioritizing your safety and steady advancement.
With Circlework, you have the opportunity to explore three distinct training modalities: strength and conditioning drills, slow yoga hatha vinyasa, and Tai Chi and Qi Gong. Our training process emphasizes cultivating stability and strength in your structure, allowing you to move freely and efficiently within your natural range of motion.
As you participate in Circlework exercises, you will not only witness improvements in your physical health and vigor but also experience a profound sense of calm relaxation. Our low-impact, gentle, and functional approach is accessible to everyone, and the techniques learned can be applied to various forms of movement.
At the core of Circlework lies the development of "High Performance Aging," a set of lifelong movement skills designed to train both the body and mind. By engaging in Circlework, you will refine muscle tone, coordination, interoception, proprioception, and balance, leading to a more holistic understanding of your body's capabilities.
Furthermore, Circlework goes beyond traditional exercise by incorporating innercise, a practice that fosters resilience of the nervous system. This results in a default state of parasympathetic homeostasis, promoting a relaxed physical and mental state, characterized by clarity and serenity.
If you are new to Circlework, we encourage you to commit to at least ten sessions to fully experience the positive benefits of this approach. Working together, we will discuss your goals and create a personalized training plan tailored to suit your specific needs, whether it's a generalized strength and conditioning program or a focus on achieving optimal balance.
Before beginning your Circlework journey, if you are new to exercise or recovering from an injury, consulting your doctor or relevant healthcare professional is advisable. Additionally, open communication with your instructor about any concerns or conditions will help ensure a safe and enjoyable experience throughout your Circlework practice.
Join us at Circlework, where we embrace the principles of bio-tensegrity and myofascial organization, allowing you to unlock the full potential of your body and mind. Experience the transformative power of Circlework as we embark on a path towards enhanced well-being and vitality together.
Circlework Training is about reaching your health and fitness goals as safely as possible. Establishing good posture and movement habits is the foundation of that journey.
The object of Circlework Training is healthy functional activity over the long term. The length of time it takes to reach training goals will be different depending on each individual’s current condition and specific goals. As previously mentioned Circlework Training is both a mental and a physical activity and the correct mix to reach your goals will be different for every individual.
Circlework will help you build both physical and mental resilience. Resilience is the ability to quickly and effectively respond to physical and mental stress and ideally default to a relaxed calm physical and mental state. Stress can be both good or bad, both will have different effects on your health if they are not balanced. The stress of resistance training will build strength, whereas the stress of poor physical organisation can result in short or long term likelihood of physical harm, usually around joints.
Please take time to read the Safety information. Your safety is my priority and understanding the safety culture of Circlework.Training is an important part of the training process and working together.
