About the author:
As a child, Anita was the smart kid, the one you'd want to help you with your homework, but the next-to-last one picked for any sports team. Then as an adult, when her twins were six, she couldn't ignore her upper back and neck pain any longer. She found relief in Hellerwork Structural Integration and in undulation, which helped her release tension and feel better. Now a structural integrator herself, she has taught undulations to thousands of people and found that it was accessible to all of them, especially those with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and scoliosis-even those who had spine surgery. She became convinced that undulation was essential to spine health and wanted to share it with more people.
In 2007, Anita wrote and published Relieve Stiffness and Feel Young with Undulation and in 2016, released a second edition, Undulation: Relieve Stiffness and Feel Young, which includes the same exercises, but organized in sections so readers can find the ones that will help them most.
Anita hasn't been chosen for a sports team recently, but she has joined a belly dance troupe and taught yoga and dance. At 52, she is stronger and more flexible than any other time in her life. "It's like I was the uncoordinated duckling who undulated into a graceful swan," she says, "If my body can change like this, I know that anyone can get the same results."
Undulation: Relieve Stiffness and Feel Young
Whether you're 37, 57, or 75; an athlete or a couch potato or in between; coordinated or a klutz, Undulation: Relieve Stiffness and Feel Young shows how just 10 minutes a day can make a difference in how you feel. This book provides easy-to-follow guidelines and photographs for simple exercises that will help you to move more comfortably.
The five Fundamental exercises create a more limber spine for anyone. Additional chapters include undulations specifically designed to target Neck & Shoulders, Low Back & Hips, Core Strength, Posture, Aging, Scoliosis, Hypermobility, and more. A total of 48 exercises are included, plus variations for each one to restore freedom and flexibility to your spine. Wherever you ache, undulation will provide relief-naturally, without medication, without equipment, without expense. You'll have fun, too.
Undulations are unique. Stretching and strength training are important, but they often don't emphasize the full range of motion that we need to do the activities we depend on every day. When we lose our full range, we gradually become stiff and less flexible, so that over time we hurt more and move less. Undulations are small, unstructured movements that lubricate tissues and joints. These non-linear and non-repetitive exercises are like the movements we did naturally when we were kids.
