Everything in the body will experience a stretch – the muscles, the nerves, and the fascia. The result of this type of stretching is unimaginable until you actually experience it in your own body. Students will first learn individual stretches and will then be introduced to various partner stretches.
This method will allow the student to experience the sensations of freeing themselves of pain in the body, which can then be carried to their clients. The most common cause of pain and tension is too much sitting, and not enough of the right movement. Learn the right movements to reduce and/or eliminate the pain for a longer and healthier life. Every student will become an expert of their own bodies first, and will then be able to share that with clients and those around them. When we learn to listen to our bodies, we can determine the best course of action for which stretches will be the most beneficial.
