Flexibility for everybody!

November 6 2021 4:30PM-6:00PM

This 90min workshop starts with a short but highly informative theory lesson. We discuss general flexibility methodology, the most important things to consider when working on your flexibility and how to program an efficient session.

We will put this newly gained knowledge to use during the main part of the workshop where we will learn how a well designed warm up will not only help you stay healthier but also actively work on your flexibility by targeting all the necessary points in your body before even getting to your actual stretches.
During this workshop you will gain a completely new understanding of how your body works and how all parts of your body link together when working on your flexibility. By going through the drills provided with the coaches supervision you will understand by yourself how your front split can drastically influence your back bending abilities and how your limiting point for some skills might not be your flexibility but simply coordination and technique.

In order to expand your experience, you will get access to a free online video training program based on the exercises done during our time together.

This workshop is for you if you want to start improving your flexibility or plan to take your flexibility to the next level. With the exercises, warm up and cool down protocols discussed you will be able to continue training at home by yourself to reach your goals without the risk of injuries.
