This intensive workshop teaches you a comprehensive, effective stretching protocol for the lower body. Active Assisted Stretching (AAS) energizes the body, enhances the health of the tissues, increases flexibility, protects the body from injury, enhances the healing process, re-aligns the fascia and makes building strength more effective.
AAS is especially good for athletes, the elderly, and the injured, and can also benefit the neurologically impaired.
During this workshop you will practice every stretch until you can perform them efficiently both individually and in sequence, with the least effort. You will also learn self-stretches to teach your clients who need to focus on stretching specific structures.
