Ortho-Bionomy and Crossfit

Reflecting on their relationship

The more I learn about Crossfit, the more I have reflected on my own practice of Ortho-Bionomy and how much crossover there actually is. On face value they don’t seem to have much in common but when one digs a little deeper, it becomes obvious how much they actually complement each other. So this raised the question in me :

What has Ortho-Bionomy got to offer the CrossFit community (and what has Crossfit got to offer that deepens my understanding of the ways Ortho-Bionomy can be applied)?

Greg Glassman has said that Crossfit training is a combination of enhanced functional movement and high intensity training. As our physical form is the basis of efficient and effective human movement, that form needs to move with as much co-ordination and coherency as possible. This allows us to perform at the peak of our ability and to reduce any possibility of injury.

Reminding the body of its ability to find balance

Is there a way to work with our bodies that not only overcomes pain and injuries, stress or anxiety but also supports our overall sense of wellbeing? As an Ortho-Bionomy practititioner, I believe there is.

One of the great untapped potentials of the human body is its inherent capacity for self correction. Ortho-Bionomy is a way of tapping into our own extraordinary ability to repair after injury, restore ease and return to our innate preference for balance and comfort.

Ortho-Bionomy is a non-invasive system of bodywork that supports healing after injury, structural balance and a more coherent functioning of the body as a whole.obpic1
