I first recorded this webinar over 5 years ago in order to explain to teachers how cueing the core is ineffective, out-dated and detrimental to natural and spontaneous movement. In some Pilates training schools teaching core activation was and still is ingrained in the syllabus, clients are referred to us after being told to “strengthen” their core by medical professionals and core stability classes are taught in gyms and health clubs.
To really understand how this false interloper came to be so entrenched in the exercise and rehabilitation world, we need to look at where it came from and then consider the reasons why it should be banished and forgotten!
