Restorative Stretching

Flexibility For Quality of Life!

Don’t just stretch, get Flexible! The Mayo Clinic reports that getting flexible offers numerous benefits including:

  • Increasing your joint range of motion which allows for full functional mobility, enhanced coordination and balance. With better form you will improve your ability to perform daily tasks and you will also get more out of your workout. ​   

 

  • Improving circulation and blood flow through your entire body, including your brain, which increases nourishment to your cells while taking waste by-products out of the body. This can also help shorten your recovery time from physical injury. ​  

  • Keeping your muscles from getting tight improves posture and minimizes daily aches and pains helping you feel more energetic and less sluggish.     

  • Contributing to stress relief by helping your muscles, body and mind to relax.    

The evidence supporting the benefits of flexibility training continues to mount. A 2011 study published in the Journal of Physiotherapy reflects that pre-diabetic adults and those with type 2 diabetes who stretched for 40 minutes after drinking a sugary beverage had lower blood sugar levels than those who did "mock stretching"— in other words, assumed the same positions but didn't actually stretch their muscles.

What is Restorative Stretching?

Restorative Stretching is a gentle method of exercise that provides all of the benefits of becoming flexible. Restorative Stretching is about embracing the practice of allowing flexibility to gradually develop instead of forcing your body to exceed its present day limits.

Through passive movement you gently coax your muscles and connective tissue, such as ligaments, joints, and fascia to soften and thereby lengthen and strengthen.

Combined with conscious breathing, Restorative Stretching has a calming effect on the body and mind that counters the stressors of our modern day, frenetic lifestyles.

Relax and Balance Your Physical and Emotional Bodies

Because poses are held for an extended period of time while focusing on your breath, Restorative Stretching becomes meditative in nature. Once you allow your body to relax and let gravity and your breath do the work, you enter a meditative state and even five minutes will seem like a short amount of time.

Restorative Stretching is an activity of self-love and nurturement. Relax your expectations and remind yourself that this is a time for your personal exploration. Turn off your mental mind and logic and the ever present tendency to qualify and quantify. Set yourself towards feeling and moving instead of thinking and striving towards a goal. There is no pressure, there is only practice.

Can I Benefit from Restorative Stretching?

Everyone benefits from Restorative Stretching. It helps to align and strengthen the physical body, opens the energetic pathways and soothes the nervous system helping to restore physical and emotional well-being and leaving you feeling balanced and transformed.  

What Can I Expect?

You will be led through a series of simple postures that are designed to restore overall flexibility. Each pose is generally held for between two to five minutes. This allows the body's tissues to relax and lengthen to a greater degree than during brief periods of stretching where the tendency is to force the stretch beyond what the body is ready to accept, risking injury.

An initial session lasts between 1.5 – 2 hours. Try to warm up your muscles just before your session. Wear stretchy clothes and bring a curious & fun attitude.  Reserve Your Session Below.

* It is important to please avoid using personal care products containing fragrances on the day of your Session.

Thank you!
