LifeStretch is a unique program designed to relieve tension, tightness and discomfort in the body using a gentle approach to stretching the fascia (connective tissue) within the body. This is NOT you standard, familiar stretch class!
This is a function mobility and stretch technique which progresses through entire chains or neuro-myo-fascia rather than targeting isolated muscles.
LifeStretch recognizes that the brain learns movement patterns in multiple planes and makes use of movement patterns that work with the biology of the body. Stretching fascia using self-traction to create space within the joints; oscillations, circumduction and breath all play a role in this approach.
LifeStretch allows for ease of movement while avoiding painful pinching. You will notice improved flexibility quickly without pain.
With regular practice students will realize huge gains in mobility and function more quickly than ever before. LifeStretch is a wonderful complement to a Pilates regimen and Englewood Pilates Center is one of a select few Pilates or wellness studios in the Florida area offering the LifeStretch program.
