About the Event

Course Overview:

This course is an addendum to a program of assisted stretching called Integrative Stretching (IS). The goal of IS is to provide personal trainers, coaches, massage therapists, fitness professionals, movement therapists, and bodyworkers with an extra set of techniques and skills geared towards improving functional movements of their clients through assisted stretching and soft-tissue manipulation techniques.  This particular course takes IS principles and techniques to the next level by utilizing more advanced flexibility training methods in order to promote greater active range of motion. The sequences, drills, techniques, and exercises taught in this course will prepare participants to work with clients with varying needs, including those who are very limited in their mobility to those who need to perform  more advanced level such as for athletics.  You'll be able to incorporate this material as well for anyone looking for a more well rounded flexibility training and movement practice.
