“Those who flow as life flows know they need no other force.”Lao Tzu
LifeStretch®️ is an hour long guided stretch class in a relaxed, comfortable, calming atmosphere. Gentle movement synchronized with the breath allows you to discover the best path for your body to become more flexible, relaxed and renewed. Each person experiences LifeStretch®️ as if it was designed just for them.
During this Covid19 crisis LifeStretch®️ is being offered as an individual guided stretch and will soon be offered as an online class. During the month of June I am offering two complimentary guided stretch sessions for individuals on-line. If you would like to check that out please contact Tim Clark here. Read more below about why you might want to consider trying an individual LifeStretch®️ session. Check back to find out how to sign up for online group sessions as well.
Because it helps us feel better. While we may not do it often enough, we all know the feeling of a good stretch in the morning when we get up before we start moving. We know how good it feels to lean or bend or pull against something when our low back feels tight or a shoulder is stiff and the sense of relief we experience.
It helps us move better. The right kind of stretching helps us gently and easily open space in our joints and in the connective tissue or fascia that gives our body structure and absorbs and transmits the force we need to move. When it’s stretched well we feel light and loose.
It helps us perform better, whether it’s in training or competition for an athlete, or in the simplest activities of daily life. Flexibility is about being able to adapt to the changing demands of our environment. That might mean changing direction on a soccer field but it also means carrying a bag of groceries while you try to pick up a toddler. The right kind of stretching helps us respond to those moments when we have to move in unexpected ways and, also gives us the ability to move with more grace, comfort and power as we go through the day.
One of the biggest benefits of Lifestretch®️ is the powerful and effective role it can play in relaxation and recovery. Whether it’s the stiffness, soreness or heavy legs that come from working out and competing or the accumulation of tension from the physical and emotional stress of daily life that we all experience, the gentle, pain-free movements and StretchWave®️ help trigger a parasympathetic response ( think “rest and relax”) that allows the body to restore and refresh itself.
Relaxation and recovery are essential and make us more able to rise to new challenges as they come, helping us be flexible in mind, body and spirit.
