Fulbright Scholar Maureen Fleming shares her original and regenerative daily training method called Fleming Elastxx®. This training method is a self-sustaining tool for metamorphosis and self directed physical change, based in an understanding of the body’s ability to regenerate the mind.
Fleming Elastxx® is an element of Fleming Technique that is part of Fleming's daily movement training involving a portable elastic exercise device invented by Fleming for flexibility and strengthening.
The exercise device can target specific muscles, such as the psoas muscle. A relaxed and released psoas stabilizes the spine and provides support through the trunk. However, a tight psoas constricts the organs, puts pressure on nerves, interferes with the movement of fluids, and impairs diaphragmatic breathing. The exercise device aids in both lengthening and opening the psoas muscle, by facilitating a gentle pull on the limbs that allows the space between the vertebrae to expand through engagement of the small muscles connecting them.
The goal is to harness the potential of the body’s ability to engage muscles simultaneously in full-body and full motion flexibility and strengthening in a daily exercise practice that supports and extends the life of all performance training and regenerates every day movement.
