What is Hypopressive?


It is the modern European method of getting strong abdominals in a healthy way. It is a group of rhythmical postures and breathing exercises used to balance the strength and the muscle tone between abdominals, pelvic floor, and the breathing muscles.

Hypopressive reduces the pressure in the intra-abdominal cavity responsible for that unwanted belly that does not go away even after thousands of sit ups.

What is the difference between Hypopresives and traditional Exercise?

Most traditional exercise techniques are HyPERpressive, which means that they increase internal pressure – that’s how they work, of course.


But the thing about pressure is that it will find your weakest spot. That’s why pressure caused from injury, too much training, or having a baby can lead to urinary incontinence, hernias and even pelvic organ prolapse. And often traditional exercise techniques cannot help, because they rely on conscious muscle contraction.

The core is designed to work at a subconscious level, so it can be effective throughout daily life, not just when you are exercising. It needs to kick into action if you have to suddenly run for bus, or swoop in to pick up your child when they fall over. It needs to work without you thinking about it.


HyPOpressive exercises decrease or reduce internal pressure, to the thoracic, abdominal, and pelvic areas of the body. They re-programme the core muscles, which are vital to managing pressure both consciously and subconsciously, and they increase their resting tone and involuntary function. In other words, the core, including the pelvic floor, starts to work again as it was designed to – without you having to think about it.

Hypopresives make your abdominal muscles stronger and decrease the intra-abdominal pressure; putting organs back in place, making the pelvic floor muscles stronger, reducing waist perimeter, preventing and resolving health issues including organ prolapsed, diasti rectis, hernias, urinary incontinence, back pain, poor posture, swollen legs, and sexual dysfunctions.

Who can perform Hypopressive?

Everybody can benefit from Hypopressives, because they are all about retraining your core muscles to work as they were designed to. However, they can be particularly helpful to people who suffer from:- 

  • urinary incontinence,

  • poor posture 

  • back pain,

  • sexual dysfunction  

  • severe pelvic prolapse

Women with prolapses, who have been told that serious and risky surgical procedures are their only option, and yet Hypopressive exercises have seen their prolapse eliminated. It’s no exaggeration to say that Hyproressives can be life changing!
