Why You Need A Stretch Class

Stretching does more than just increase flexibility. It is a great way to:

Enhance physical fitness
Develop body awareness
Increase mental and physical relaxation
Reduce the risk of injury to joints, muscles, and tendons
Reduce muscular soreness
Create a greater efficiency on the respiratory and cardiovascular systems

In this class we start with a warm-up that includes doing joint rotations starting with our toes and working up the body. We will also work on balance while we strengthen and lengthen our muscles. We will do gentle forms of yoga postures, Tai Chi, and include some strength training exercises. You will leave this class feeling strong, long, and refreshed.

"Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it." ~Plato
