History

The concept of Pravilo comes from the Cossacks. Through suspension training, they became stronger, healthier, more efficient, and better warriors. Today’s technical solutions are slightly different, e.g., using modern pulleys and winches.

Pravilo is part of an ancient Cossacks martial arts practice known today as “Systema”.

Device Design

There are several versions of Pravilo currently in use. These include lifting by winches, weight balance, or fixed ropes. Construction typically involves a standalone metal or wooden frame, although some practitioners use a dedicated room with hooks attached to the ceiling or even on trees.

Users of Pravilo

Pravilo helps sportspeople and martial artists improve their flexibility and relaxation to boost recovery and strength, especially for ligaments and tendons. It helps dancers to move lighter and more smoothly, with grace.

[Generally, today, Pravilo become viral in the wellness industry in countries of origin (Russia, Ukraine and Belarus).]

[It’s also become popular in retirement homes. By developing expanding power, practitioners can slow down the process of condensing bodies.]

Physiotherapists, chiropractors, and osteopaths can use Pravilo to decompress, relax and balance bodies. Psychotherapists can use Pravilo to help people with traumas, stress, depression, or other mental issues related to body tension.

There is an unlimited variety of options for training uses, positions and focuses- consult a Pravilo instructor for more information.

Sabio - Opening brings calmness

‘’This is so good. It's like bliss. It's really very interesting, very powerful and unexpected what I feel… I've never felt this way after any modality, and I use a lot of different modalities for therapy.
I don't know where to put it… The body is in a strange positive state, very emotional and calm at the same time. It must be something with this decompression of the joints—such interesting concepts. Because we always compress when we walk, we do anything, whatever we do, the body, bones and joints are being compressed, and we never decompress them.
It's like we are being taught not to open, but actually opening brings calmness. Wow.
I feel really relaxed… You never stretch this way the whole body; it's always parts.
It's like yoga, but yoga cannot even do this; you cannot get to this position..
Oh, that lightness, so light!
It's so different... Wow!’’

It's like an intense stretch, and then afterwards, you feel just floaty and kind of free and bouncy and just really zen.
It's really nice. It's the same I used to do a lot of yoga. It feels like after an hour of yoga, that's exactly the kind of feeling.’’

Ryan Jones - Dancer, Teacher of Gyrotonic method, Physiotherapist and Osteopath about Pravilo

‘’You can imagine it looks intense for your eyes to see; however, the space in the spine,  there's a lot of space, and it doesn't compress the spine at all in any way.
I think this machine can benefit, you know, dancers like myself, other bodywork practitioners, and athletes.
Also, if you had an injury in your ankles or your wrists, it would also be quite good to alleviate and create some space in the joint for that synovial fluid to release back into the rest of the body.
It's interesting this idea of expanding the body and contracting the body in order to create space in the ligaments, the fascia, and the tendons; you can give those joints in themselves.
I think modern ideas around strength are about, or maybe traditional as well, it's about contracting the body. And I feel this is very much expanding the body.
I just couldn't recommend it enough to everybody; it is light for you. You have to get yourselves on this machine...
Man, this is absolutely incredible!’’

Mary, 83, enjoys comfort and improved circulation.

‘’My name is Mary, and I am 83.
It's a very good feeling.
That's very comfortable.
I felt like I was in a hammock.
Well, it felt very good to be stretched out, particularly when the head was extended that felt very good. And it was interesting to find quite a sore place on my arm, which I didn't know I had.
I really enjoyed having my leg raised and stretched.
It makes me feel taller, and I would probably walk better.
So, it improves things.
It feels good like things are circulating.’’
