INTRODUCTION

From the beginning of time, people have been looking for the Holy Grail of wellbeing or at least a magic potion that can keep them fitter, stronger and younger.

Having injured every major joint in his body along with several major operations, Wayne Léal used to think it was a curse, but with hindsight he saw it as a blessing. Through his own process of recovery and rehabilitation he gained a greater insight into body movement and more importantly body language.

For example Léal says that when a boxer goes into the ring its not about the power he has, it is about the power his opponent thinks he’s got. If there’s a smile or a stoop in the shoulders it‘s a sign of weakness. All it takes is a tenth of a second for people to form an impression of you from your body language. So changing the way you look not only affects how you are perceived but also how you perceive yourself through nonverbal communication.

Léal said when he was injured he had a feeling of being feeble and helpless. He noticed his body language changed. He would close up and close himself off from others. But when he started training again there was a profound change in his mentality and body chemistry.

His training methodology is a unique mix of Bellicon, Aqua, NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and Yoga. It has proven success for people from all walks of life, but most notably when Darren Barker became the IBF World Middleweight Champion. Darren turned to him 12 weeks before the fight because he doubted himself and was unable to do conventional high impact boxing training, as a result of his ongoing hip and back problems.

Barker knew about Wayne’s alternative training methods and together they made boxing history when Barker won the World title. In doing so he became the first boxer in history to win a World title without lifting a weight, doing a sit-up, running a mile or skipping. The Holy Grail of wellbeing lies in living a balanced life. In over thirty years of teaching Wayne said that he has seen enough diet and exercise nonsense to last a lifetime. His training methodology is about adaptive exercise to improve confidence, burn calories, strengthen the muscles, improve cardiovascular performance, and increase flexibility.

Gravity Training

Bellicon (mini trampoline) Training burns as much as 220 calories in 20 minutes. As well as burning more calories it produces greater health benefits than conventional aerobic training. The forces of nature that are in every core strength-training program are: acceleration, deceleration and opposing gravity. Bouncing on rebounder aligns these forces vertically at the bottom of the jump. With gravity pulling them down, deceleration slowing the landing and acceleration pushing them back up, net result: explosive power.

Running for cardio fitness puts a strain on the ankles, knees and hips and this strain is still felt on conventional steel sprung rebounders.

But using a rebounder with bungee rope technology there is no strain only proven fat burn and muscle increase. As well as improved cardio fitness, balance and muscle tone it is an age defying training program with proven benefits for injury rehabilitation and increasing bone density. Gravity is what keeps us standing on the ground it is also what makes our faces and body sag downward rather than get perkier and lifted. While bouncing, your entire body literally has the weight of the world off its shoulders. Every cell in the body becomes stronger as it has to adjust to that increased gravitational pull. People swear that they look and feel younger, their skin has better overall texture and their circulation is improved.

Water Resistance Training

Water provides the best working environment for strengthening and training your core muscles. The water’s buoyancy creates natural instability and water’s increased density offers enhanced levels of resistance that both assist and resist movement. Training in water also strengthens the body quicker than ordinary exercises. The major benefit to exercising in the water is the protection it offers for your joints as opposed to when you train your body on land where there is an impact on your joints.

Water is about 800 times denser than air and it provides about 12 times more resistance. Performing a mix of cardio and strength movements in the water you boost your metabolism, burn calories, build lean muscle and improve cardio conditioning. Water workouts improve joint mobility help rehabilitate injuries, and rejuvenate muscles. Water pressure causes the respiratory muscles to work harder causing a higher breathing frequency and therefore causing these muscles to consume more oxygen. The pressure of the water on your body also helps to take the lactic acid out of the cells and delivers it to the liver more efficiently; muscles exercised under water do not feel as sore. It promotes body detoxification and the reduction of swelling in injured or swollen joints or limbs.

Active Isolated Stretching Yoga

AIS Yoga was designed for athletes. It is based on the ‘Active Isolated Stretching’ philosophy. Unlike traditional yoga you don’t hold the pose. Instead, you use your body to gently assist in pulling and pushing your muscle a little further than your body would ordinarily allow. This form of yoga reprograms your brain to remember new ranges of motion, so you see fast improvements in flexibility. Mentally we’ve conditioned ourselves to believe you can stretch only to a certain point. Most often you’ve determined that point because you’re weak in a given area or you lack focus.

With AIS YOGA, you reprogram preconceived notions about your flexibility. For example in downward dog you stretch your hamstrings, back, and calves. As you do so they contract, and your brain sends a message telling them to relax and enable you to push further into a slightly deeper stretch. Since your hamstrings and calves are doing most of the work, your brain is sending signals to your hamstrings, shutting off the signals to your low back that wants to resist. So in a sense, this form of yoga is the body tricking the mind into a new way of thinking.

The Workshops connect people with a common intention to use physical exercise as a tool to build the strength and confidence that leads to ‘Self Mastery’.
To achieve this requires considerable focus and discipline but those who have achieved this inevitably stand out from the crowd.
Nothing happens overnight people should pay heed to Aesop's fable of the race between the hare and the slow-moving - but ultimate winner - the tortoise. Those who do are prepared to play the long game to ‘Self Mastery’ and win. A person of strong character has perfect control over their body when compared to an ordinary person who moves uncomfortably.
As the ability to sustain regular exercise become more challenging it mirrors the focus and attention that is required to succeed life’s challenges. The contemplative movements are a mind and body system to gain body awareness. The exercises also develop core physical strength, steadying the nerves, muscles and mind to achieve a successful outcome.
