What is IPATH?
ABOUT THE METHOD
IPATH® is a specific sequence of poses, done in a unique order on a yoga mat which allows the body to first release superficial soft tissues in the thoracic area. The body is placed on blocks to work with gravital pull. This 'hands-off" method mindfully and safely manipulates superficial fascia (soft tissues), then layer after layer, the body relaxes using natural breathwork that over time change the negative patterns that set within the body. Stillness and tranquility is what the IPATH® practitioner seeks, in order to continue manipulating and releasing the body as a whole. IPATH® doesn't treat symptoms, it goes to the root of the reasons for misalignment.
The accumulation of bad habits may cause the body to be in such misalignment that slouching or overcompensating may feel "comfortable".
Through IPATH®, your body realigns into its natural shape passively through gravital pull and relaxation- the energy level changes. The sequence allows deep muscle memory to revert back to natural good habits. After IPATH®, your body should start feeling "comfortable" when in its most healthy alignment - eliminating pain, distributing weight appropriately, and reducing tension on your spine and joints.
IPATH® is popular because of how good it feels to "let go" of tension.
Once the layers of the muscle and connective tissue have eased and lengthened, we work on restorative spine lengthening and traction-Giving the body more space and further removing tension.
The final poses with the IPATH® postural ball is done to re-train the muscles which are then primed to hold and retain your rejuvenated shape . These "trigger points" will offer the greatest value toward overall back healthcare and posture.
With the IPATH® method, the body eliminates pain with gravity and MFR release. IPATH® advocates self-healing with simple props without strain or "working out"--this is a "work-in"
Most people start seeing results after the first session, and with regular practice, the benefits are transforming.
