Integrated Back Strength & Spine Support
You Will Become Body Conscious...
in a newfound way that serves all movement, postures, & senses of well-being...
Much of this new consciousness arises from getting in touch with supportive places in the body which we are unfamiliar with because these places are located in the backside of the body...
inside of both a circle and a square...
This da Vinci drawing is also known as
which means literally in Latin: Man and Square
but can also be interpreted as "perfect man" as
in regards to the perfection of proportion.
Homo Quadratus can also be
interpreted as a man or human
functioning from four quadrants
However, Vitruvius also brought out the potential empowerment and stability that comes from working from the triangular approach:
Vitruvius stated: "One has to know that when spreading one's legs the space between the legs is a equilateral triangle."
There is detailed information about both da Vinci's notes that accompany his drawing of Vitruvian Man - and Vitruvius' text describing correlating measures of the human body at:
So in order to work from the back body in four quadrants that equally support the spine on all sides, it's very helpful to tap into the truth of the revurring three's in the human body:
Three Curves of the Spine: Lumbar-Thoracic-Cervical
Three Joints to the Arm: Shoulder-Elbow-Wrist
Three heads of each triceps muscle connecting on to each shoulder girdle
It's a Triangle that Connects Triceps to Traps to Lats to Sacro Iliac
The triangle formed when both sets of
triceps connect into the lower traps
Triceps has three heads
The muscle wraps back and under the scapula
Releases the shoulder & then the neck
Connects into the powerful lats and lower traps
Lats wrap all the way down to the sacroiliac joints on either side of the pelvis
The triceps should not be cut up or ripped because then they cannot connect to the larger muscles that empower the back body: lats, lower traps, and transversus.

benefits of releasing a stiff neck, tight shoulders, and upper back tension.
See live the kinds of hands-on support I provide in a one-on-one session.
Witness how she uses her wingspan to hover and fly her spine instead of
having to hike herself up from her shoulders as she arches and lengthens.
This is the triceps wrapping back to the scapula which creates the wingspan.
