Core Restore

Imagine a Fusion of Yoga, Pilates, Rehabilitation and Movement without Pain.  Dr. Seebacher has taken years of experience from teaching all these movement classes and breaking them down for optimal performance for wounded athletes, weekend warriors and chronic pain survivors who don’t dare move a muscle in case it hurts.  Often people complain of attending classes doing countless repetitions at high speed and end up hurting themselves.  More often than not, it’s because they didn’t have the ability to perform the skill successfully at slow speed before catapulting into the competitive pace of an instructor teaching to the more advanced abilities of the class.

For your convenience, many of the Core Restore and Functional Rehabilitation exercises can be found on the Video page.

Starter Class  For the low activity level. (Chronic Pain, Acute Pain, Desk Jockey, Couch Potato, Wounded Weekend Warrior, and Supporters) Gather 3-6 of your friends to schedule a group class held at:

2820 Lassiter Rd, Suite A-150,

Tools of the Trade (purchase by clicking the link)Here are some of my favorites and suggestions based upon your needs:

  1. Any standard yoga mat is perfectly fine for class, however, I prefer the 1/2″ thick yoga mat to protect precious bony points like the knees or the sitting bones.  You are welcome to purchase a pre-made yoga kit or create your own based on your individual needs. (*REQUIRED)
  2. A yoga wedge is ideal for weak or painful wrists.  This helps to support a better angle for your wrists when working in the table top position, plank, down-dog and even cobra.
  3. A yoga strap is a universal tool when attempting to stretch those un-stretchable and hard to reach body parts.  This particular yoga strap is my favorite because it has multiple grip loops without worrying about your hands slipping on the strap.
  4.  Yoga blocks are used to help deepen a pose, or make a pose more attainable.
  5. I like to use a 6 inch ball to add range of motion as well as deep relaxation into some stretches and self-massage poses.  It’s always important to go softer, rather than harder.  For smaller spaces you can use a tennis ball, but please don’t use a Lacrosse ball as they do not have any give and can be too hard, causing injury to your body.  My favorite self-massage kit is the
  6. A large, core exercise ball is used to improve balance and strengthen core muscles.  Be sure to choose the size that is appropriate for your height.  As an example, most people would choose a 65cm ball if you are between 5’4″ and 5’10” tall.  You have the ideal sized ball when your hips and knees remain at a 90 degree angle when sitting on the ball.
  7. There are two or three sizes of foam rollers that work well.  The 24×36 inch foam roller is great for balance across the length and/or width of your body, such as working those hamstrings or quads, both at the same time.  The 6×12″ foam roller or even a 6×18″ foam roller is smaller in length and is more manageable for working one side of the body at a time such as the shoulder or lateral hip.
  8. Lastly, to help restore confidence in rehabilitating abdominal crunches, especially without pain, there is an abdominal wedge that is designed to support your lumbar spine as well as provide greater range of motion to more advanced techniques.
