Flexibility and contortion classes have very different theories and methods. My classes involve:

  • Injury Prevention Exercises: To increase strength to support your increased range of motion.
  • Nerve Flexibility: They are stretched very differently to muscles and if they are not targeted they will inhibit your range of motion.
  • Muscle Pliability: Muscles do not lengthen thy become more pliable. By switching off the nervous system we can get deeper into the belly of the muscle.
  • Breaking Through Fascia: Think the skin of a sausage, fascia is the skin the sausage is your muscle.
  • Lengthening Connective Tissue: These are tendons and other tissues that connect the muscles into insertion points.
  • Correcting kinetic chains: Corrective flexibility and training.
  • Strength training.
  • USA GYM: Gymnastics training methods.
