Posture and Flexibility
Winter break 2017: there will be no classes on the 20th and 27th of June, or on the 4th of July. Classes restart on the 11th of July.Classes
Tuesday evening Posture and Flexibility stretch class in Sherwood/Graceville is similar to a hatha yoga class, including elements from the Posture and Flexibility (Stretch Therapy) programme (see more...). Monday's Power Stretch for Splits class is targeted at those wanting to develop their flexibility to the maximum, with the particular goal of achieving the splits (Monday's course now completed - watch this space for future courses (see more...)
I am also available for private stretch classes in my studio in Graceville, specialising in stretches for performers, including splits and deep backbends, suitable for dancers, aerialists, contortionists, and others.
What to bring: mat (e.g. yoga mat), plus thick folded blanket for extra support (e.g. in shoulderstands), water bottle. Optional: depending on flexibility, you may like to bring a fabric loop (or instead use a folded towel) to reach your leg in leg stretches. I have a few small loops available for $5 each
What to wear: anything that you are comfortable in that lets you move freely. Footwear: stretch classes are best taken barefoot. However, this can get cold in winter. If you want to use socks, I suggest "Toesox" grip socks. These socks have the best grip for the foot with individual toes, and have rubber grips all over the bottom surface (including the toes), giving very good grip even on slippery floors. See www.toesox.com for the original supplier.
