Class Description: Active Stretching for EveryBODY is based on the Active Isolated Stretching developed by Aaron Mattes. Active Stretching uses the body naturally to achieve remarkable muscle lengthening without force or pain. Muscle Stretches are achieved with movement and the brain instead of with static force.
Active Stretching establishes and reinforces the Mind-Body Connection to bring about an effective stretch. It is gentle and focused. Results from Active Stretching are immediate and measurable. Tightness and Pain are often relieved in seconds. Active Stretching also builds, strengthens and balances muscles.
The beneficial effects of Active Stretching are cumulative. The more you do it, the more you will benefit.
In the Active Stretching class we do a variety of stretches, predominately the Active Isolated Stretching developed by Aaron Mattes, plus some other stretching that has come from Yoga, Dance and the Instructor.
Active Stretching Classes are beneficial for everybody all ages and all levels of fitness, from elite athletes to couch potatoes, and everyone in between. Every stretch is done within each individuals range of motion and strength limits, and is done without force.
Classes on all three days are the same class material.

Stretch all of your major muscles and muscle groups, head to toe, in one hour
Increase your overall flexibility and range of motion.
Reduce muscular aches and pain.
Speed the recovery and healing of tired or injured muscles.
Learn new stretches.
Go away feeling relaxed and refreshed, but energized.

Classes are on-going. There is no contract to sign. There is no block of time to pay for in which payment must be used up within a specific period of time.
Aaron Mattes says, Stretching should be a relaxing, enjoyable experience. That is what we work to achieve in the Full-Body Active Stretching for EveryBODY Classes.
We make stretching enjoyable as well as being beneficial..
