What is POUND?
So are you in? Our Instructor Erin Atkinson can't wait to RAISE THAT ROCKSTAR SPIRIT with you!
POUND® is all about putting minds before bodies, lifting spirits, getting people to TUNE IN to themselves, and helping people all over the world release their inner rockstars while leaving stress and other negative junk (frustration, aggression, sadness + more!) on the workout floor. But how exactly does POUNDing away after a stressful day put you in a better state of mind?
The brain has rhythm. Rhythm is hardwired into our being.
We know that drumming together with others makes us feel great but so much more is happening! Studies suggest that drumming, especially in synchrony with other people, connects several areas of the brain. Communal drumming has been found to fight cancer. A reduction in post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after group drumming has been seen with soldiers, an “… increased sense of openness, togetherness, belonging, sharing, closeness, connectedness and intimacy, as well as achieving a non-intimidating access to traumatic memories, facilitating an outlet for rage and regaining a sense of self-control.”
