With the exercises covered you’ll be able to keep practicing and improving by yourself at home after the event
The second half of the day will be dedicated to all things mobility & flexibility.
You’ll learn how to increase your flexibility with a targeted & technical approach based on over 15 years of experience. We’ll deconstruct flexibility goals such as splits, oversplits and backbends into their individual components, showing you exactly how to target each one specifically. The goal is to lengthen and strengthen the correct muscles and give you the tools needed to stay injury free and healthy by getting a feel for your body and excellent alignment.
You will be taken through a full body warm up and a whole curriculum of systematic progressions to get you closer to your goals. Learn about flexibility theory and how to approach a stretching session. Further you’ll get to experience hands-on training by being guided into positions in a safe manner to learn what to engage and what to relax.
