Body Training + Therapy for PG Pilots.
Name: Bunok Kravitz
Bunok has been practicing yoga for more than 20 years, teaching for more than 10 and paragliding for over 4. Her instruction is strongly based in anatomy and the biomechanics of movement. She also uses trigger point therapy, a myofascial release technique, on her clients suffering from pain, often stemming from chronic muscle overload (RSI).
In her first days of flying lessons, Bunok saw how paragliding can strain the body. It was a natural progression for Bunok to begin integrating her body therapy practices to help herself, and other pilots and instructors, prepare and repair their bodies.
“We all, as pilots, overuse certain muscles in our bodies. If proper attention is not paid to the body, we end up paying the price, eventually. ”
Throughout her four years of paragliding, Bunok experienced two accidents and quite a few hard landings. It’s forced her to learn, through her own healing processes and her practice, how to optimally care for her body as a pilot.
“When we are free to move, we can discover the power of our bodies and begin to build our technique, confidence and control, while minimising wear and tear, risk of injury, and faster recovery.”
During TIP clinics, and one-on-one sessions (in-person or online), Bunok’s clients can learn how to prepare, maintain and treat their bodies, as paragliding pilots, offering them more freedom of movement. Pilots can take profit of Bunok’s techniques and experience today by following her YouTube Channel!
