In this 2-day course, you will learn the Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) method of muscle lengthening and fascial massage release. AIS is a type of athletic stretching technique that provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups. More importantly, AIS provides functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes. Many experts have advocated that stretching should last up to 60 seconds. However, prolonged static stretching actually decreases the blood flow within the tissue creating localized ischemia and lactic acid build-up. These stretches, which are held no longer than 2 seconds, provide maximum benefit and can be accomplished without opposing tension or resulting trauma.
You will also learn David’s ten-minute stretch program. This program was designed to be performed at work or at home in a small space. A combination of twelve easy-to-learn movements developed from a dance background for real people.
