The Dailey Method – Phoenix Desert Ridge
Are you slumped over as you read through this article? Do you find your back aching and you know your posture could be better? At The Dailey Method, we are passionate about posture, alignment, strength, flexibility.
Good posture means that your bones are properly aligned and your muscles, joints and ligaments can work as nature intended. It places your vital organs in the right position so that they can function at peak efficiency. Good posture additionally contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system and leads to more positive energy in your body.
In each Dailey Method class, we focus on alignment of your body, layering on muscular engagement to support your alignment and then add on movement and weight to challenge your muscular engagement even further.
In addition to spinal alignment, we focus on skeletal alignment that will produce optimal results in the prevention of osteoporosis. With proper alignment we encourage the breakdown and building of bones in exactly the places where osteoporosis is most common: your hips, ribs, spine and wrists. You’ll notice that your Dailey Method teachers are very picky about how you stand (feet placed hips width distance apart and parallel), how you carry your ribcage (floating directly over your pelvis with no flaring or thrusting of your ribcage forward), and how you align your wrists in exercises such as weight work or whenever you are pulling off of the ballet barre (neutral wrist). By focusing on proper skeletal alignment first, you are setting yourself up for successful muscular engagement and fluid movement in and out of class.
We offer individualized attention in a group setting to give you the strength, discipline, and joy to find ultimate alignment – in body, mind, and spirit. And we have a damn good time while we’re doing it! Each 60 minute class is an opportunity to learn more about how your body moves and feels. Our amazing instructors are encouraging and committed to helping you build a stronger YOU. The awesome sense of community in our studio, makes coming to class something to look forward to every day. Come and check us out for yourself and notice the Dailey difference.
