Healthy Addiction is currently noting interest in an Active Isolated Stretching class to be conducted by Ben Barrett.
We all get tight and lose some of our youthful flexibility, whether through the aging process, neglect, or due to the scar tissue that forms due to old injuries. But this inflexibility can be diminished. In fact, we can greatly improve our flexibility. Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a very safe and effective way of increasing our flexibility or range of motion. All of our voluntary muscles in our body are paired with their opposite. When one muscle is contracting, its opposite match is stretching. This is how we are all hard wired, and we can use this unique physiological mechanism to our advantage in improving or increasing our range of motion, again, safely and effectively. We measure flexibility at the start, and chart improvement throughout the weeks to follow.
If you are interested in this class, please complete our online survey and you will be notified when this class forms.
