Karen is our local Tripudio Instructor, offering classes in Axminster. Tripudio is movement with a focus on the fluid systems of the body, including the lymphatic system and the cardiovascular system. Principles from manual lymphatic drainage massage are combined with fascia (connective tissue) release techniques and translated into movements.
Tripudio classes start and finish with a specifically designed warm-up and cool-down sequence that follows the protocol of manual lymphatic drainage and focuses on balance. The rest of the class is a combination of connective tissue stretching, non-weight bearing gentle strengthening and low impact aerobic dances set to music. Exercise is gentle to avoid fatigue and overexertion of the venous system.
The class can be taken standing or seated. Tripudio is therefore ideally suited to mixed levels of fitness and everyone can work to his or her own ability.
