GST CONSCIOUS CONDITIONING™
What’s trendy, easy and convenient tends to be the driving force behind our cultural push to sweat ourselves into an aesthetic mold. We stack ourselves with reps and core, poses and cardio that not only limit and damage our fascia, but tune us out of listening to our bodies on a holistic level.
Yes, most of what modern exercise has evolved into is the opposite of what fascia actually needs – it’s too limited, compartmentalized and repetitive. Instead of worshiping core strength, fascia asks to make your spine the most fluid dynamic part of your whole body conditioning. Instead of adrenal-burning cardio to burn fat, fascia wants to train the pulmonary side of the system and create power through the volume and strength of your lungs and to enhance your body’s metabolic efficiency.
FASCIA ON THE MOVE
Fascia asks for different conditioning because it doesn’t work like how we’ve been trained to use our bodies. Fascia lights up through compression (spredding) and traction (pulling) instead of the contracting, tightening and holding of our muscles and bones. It delights in fluid and whole body movement experiences – in wide, big, upside down, pleasurable and playful freedom.
In this kind of holistic play, fascia shows us its brilliant capability as our organ of consciousness while it cracks open and communicates through our mind-body-spirit channels. It wakes up our insides on every level instead of switching our brains off to just push, force and exert our bodies through a workout without any intuitive sense or communication with ourselves.
FOR EVERY BODY
For anyone from the high-performing fitness enthusiast to the mild aches of a relatively healthy body, GST Conscious Conditioning meets every one of fascia’s needs for conditioning and performance while developing a more intelligent, functional and, yes, aesthetic body. Through our class and program, you can intentionally brighten your body through sustainable and fluid fitness that can support you for your entire life.
THE CLASS & PROGRAM
Conscious Conditioning works in kinetic and cinematic motion. You take the technologies we teach you about fascia mechanics and put them into drive. Since length and strength are the same thing when it comes to fascia, these classes will feel super flowy and stretchy while still rigorous.
PRACTICE GST CONSCIOUS CONDITIONING
“I’ve studied dance, circus and aerial arts, as well as competed in many other sports and GST provided me with unparalleled understanding and physical aptitude no other exercise training has. GST is the foundation of all quality movement and it has provided me what no movement technique has thus far—simple, specific instructions on how to use my body.”
– Katie Mallete
“I spent nearly 20 years swimming, running and strength training with weights, bands, balls, etc, but it wasn’t until I studied GST that I actually had any sense of how the body naturally moves and the “strings” that tie it together. So much of what I had been doing concentrated around developing specific regions of my body to perform better. With GST, I realized that I could be more productive, faster and safer (injury-wise) by understanding that any movement should pull from all regions of the body.”
– Ellen Minga
“Because of the innovative techniques unique to GST, you think it, you believe it, you practice it, you feel it, and you live it. GST is groundbreaking and surpasses Pilates and traditional exercise. I encourage people to try GST. It will change your life.”
