Method Putkisto is an innovative, precise method of deep stretching, strengthening and breathing, enabling you to achieve in-depth improvements in body shape.
It teaches you to get to know your body and how to support it in its optimum alignment using your own body weight, breathing and focus - systematically, improving muscle balance. This results in a greater freedom of movement, a sense of well-being and increased energy levels.
It has been developed by Marja Putkisto.
"I have developed the method over my lifetime and corrected with it my own body to find a way to a more leaner and lifted body. I would like to offer everyone an opportunity to feel free to move! It is Finnish - and that is why it appreciates simplicity and natural movements".
The way to an overall balance of the body – it uses visualisation and simple basic movements. All this re-programmes the neurological pathways (muscle memory)
Deep stretching exercises – focuses on elongating tight and short muscles to free the body to its neutral/centre position.
Deep breathing exercises – improves the functionality of the diaphragm and supports the ribcage to its optimum position.
Deep strengthening exercises – we strengthen the deeper muscles supporting the posture.
It is suitable for all ages and fitness levels: top sport athletes as well as fitness enthusiasts. It can be used as a part of rehabilitation or pre/post operations and can, in cases, cure back and joint pain.
Method Putkisto is the way to creative thinking and a way to work from "inside out" through the structural study of your own body. The MP method encourages each individual to work towards their true potential and engages his/her inner resources and creativity to achieve this.
