core360 breathing and core activation – 60 min training session
Take your core360 belt training to the next level with our comprehensive 1 hour training with our creator, Erin McGuire PT, OCS.
Our goal is to create products and content that empower you to go further, faster in reaching your movement goals.
The more you know and understand about 360 breathing and 360 core stabilization, the more you are able to maximize the benefits of using your core360 belt and further the gains you make with your wellness program, posture, fitness routine and/or performance.
The more we know about your posture, how well you are breathing and how well you stabilize your core during certain movements, the more we can provide specific guidance based on your needs and goals.
This virtual consultation is for those who want a personalized understanding of how they can improve their breathing, core activation and overall movement using the core360 belt. We will send you a brief questionairre prior to your session to get to know you a bit better and understand your movement goals and priorities. Based on observation during our session, we will work on helping you understand what proper breathing and core activation is and where you need to improve. We will show you how to use your core360 belt to target the areas you most need to improve, show you how best to begin working on these areas and give you some tools to to understand how to integrate this training into your everyday activities and exercise/training programs.
See below for more detail.
What to expect during your comprehensive consultation:
Prior to your "face to face" session, we will ask you to submit a questionnaire aimed at helping us learn about your movement history and what your goals are.
Based on your questionnaire and a few tests at the beginning of your "face to face" session, the rest of your time may include:
- further questions and discussion
- education about proper 360 breathing and 360 core activation related to your findings
- going through specific movements and exercises using your core360 belt
- discussion about how to progress and carryover what you are doing with the exercises into other activities or exercises
After your session, Erin will create a pdf for you noting key findings, areas that need improving, any recommendations and suggested exercises with cues and specifics about where and what you should be focusing on.
Following your purchase of a consultation, you will receive an email detailing information about setting up your appointment, what to wear, how to set up your room, etc in order to get the most out of your time with Erin. It is recommended you use your core360 belt for at least a week or two prior to your consult. There will be a health screening and consent form to complete prior to our session.

About Erin McGuire PT, OCS: Erin has been a physical therapist for 25 years. She currently practices at her clinic, Back in Balance Physical Therapy, in Los Angeles, CA. Erin is a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist and a Prague School of Rehabilitation DNS international instructor/practitioner.
Having competed at the NCAA level of softball in college, as well as having a lifetime interest in sports, focusing her practice on treating the orthopedic and sport rehabilitation population was a natural fit. While she utilizes an eclectic approach in her practice, it is largely influenced by the DNS philosophy and the concepts of the Prague School of Manual Medicine. Her passion for movement and practice of DNS has increased her interest and focus on the diaphragm and it’s functions, relating to both respiration and intra-abdominal pressure, and the key role they play in creating optimal stabilization and movement. In 2014, after years of seeing the difficulty her clients had retraining their breathing and core activation (key functions of the diaphragm) and how widespread impaired diaphragm function is within all activity levels of the population, she created the core360 belt. The core360 belt is a training tool designed to help users facilitate proper activation of the diaphragm by helping them better train 360 breathing and 360 core activation. Her experience using the core360 belt with her clients and during her own exercise and movement practice, led to an even larger understanding of the vital role the diaphragm plays in movement, performance and overall well-being. With the belt, she was seeing her clients achieve higher levels of diaphragm activity at a faster pace. Not only were they progressing further, but it became evident how improving diaphragm activity had an immediate and instantaneous impact on the quality of movement and stabilization patterns throughout the body. Training of this key muscle became front-and-center in her treatment strategy with every client. Through teaching and the core360 belt, her passion and goal is to help both individual users improve their breathing and core activation and to assist other practitioners in furthering their understanding of the diaphragm’s role in movement and why assessing and training good diaphragm function is a necessity with all clients.
