FLEXIBILITY
Sense the Stretch
This is an old key.


There are three important reasons why stretching is an essential component to most fitness routines. Stretching increases flexibility, which:

· Improves alignment
· Prevents injury (imbalance in flexibility or strength is a common cause of injury)
· Increases range of motion (creating ease in movements)

When demonstrating daily stretches, clients often confess they do not feel their muscles stretching. Or, they do not know how to access the place in their body that is bothering them. Targeted and correct stretching techniques are extremely important to successfully increase flexibility. This includes maintaining proper alignment and knowing exactly which muscles should feel the stretch. Skilled movement techniques teach you how to stretch at home or on the go, so you get the results you need.
