Meet Little B.I.G. Host, Alba

by Little BIG

As we leap into 2022 (woohoo!) there’s never been a better time to try a new type of exercise to keep us motivated to improve our physical and mental health.

With that in mind, we’re so excited to introduce you to our next Little B.I.G. Host – Alba from Hypopressive RSF Australia.

If you didn’t know already, Alba runs Hypopressive classes in small groups at the Little B.I.G. House on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9.15 – 10.15am.

Hypo-what, you ask? Keep reading to learn more!

We asked Alba to tell us a bit more about what Hypopressive is all about, and her experience as a Summer Hill local:

1. I’ve been a Summer Hill local since

Almost a year and a half ago.

2. This community is special to me because

It has the feeling of a real community, there is always someone willing to help, share, give or just have a chat.

3. My favourite thing about the Little B.I.G. House is

To have a community meeting place, especially one that is not weather dependent.

4. The event / program I’m running in the Little B.I.G. House is

Two types of exercise classes; Hypopressive and Hypolates:

Hypopressive is postural exercises which focus on the inner-core. Hypopressive helps to release the tension on the diaphragm and tone the pelvic floor and abdomen. The objective is to learn and integrate the management of the intraabdominal pressure. It helps to improve your posture, your mobility, prevent hernias, and prevent pelvic floor disfunction amongst other benefits.  

Hypolates is a combination of Hypopressive with clinical Pilates. It is a bit more of a workout.

The classes are run in small groups so I can give individual feedback and adapt the class to everyone’s needs.

5. I hope this event / program will make participants feel

Help participants to acknowledge their bodies and feel confident in themselves.

6. The top thing on my bucket list is

To continue learning and connecting with people. My interests are health, sport, dancing, and Pacific and Aboriginal culture.

7. I’m most grateful for

My family and friends.

8. The last Little B.I.G. thing / action I did for someone else or received from someone was

My clients’ comments of the Little B.I.G. impact from their Hypopressive training to their lives. I feel proud that I’ve been able to help them to reconnect with their bodies and feel in control of their lives.
