Unlock your flexibility with Stretch Therapy classes on the Gold Coast
Have you been looking for Stretch Therapy classes on the Gold Coast? At Fitlife, we offer “Flex” classes which are based on the Stretch Therapy principles by the renowned Kit McLaughlin. If you’ve been feeling stiff and sore—or just know that flexibility isn’t your strong suit—these classes are just the ticket.
Why do we need flexibility?
Tightness and stiffness are what leads us to lose mobility. It also increases our risk of injury. Regular Stretch Therapy classes on the Gold Coast can help you to turn rigidity into fluidity. The techniques will help you to increase your range of movement, which in turn can help to reduce pain associated with tight, stiff muscles.
The principles of Stretch Therapy
The primary principle of Stretch Therapy is that the body and mind is more than simply just the sum of its parts. As such, in our Stretch Therapy Gold Coast classes we focus on the body/mind as a whole. Section by section, you’ll work on improving the flexibility and openness of your entire body.
The techniques utilised in our Stretch Therapy Gold Coast classes
The techniques we use in our Gold Coast Stretch Therapy classes are based on the latest scientific research. One of the core methods we use is the contract-relax technique. An example of this method is to imagine you’re sitting on the floor with your legs out in front of you and alternating between pointing and flexing your feet. Other techniques we use in our Gold Coast Stretch Therapy classes include pulsing, directed breathing, long holds and micro-movements.
Other benefits of Stretch Therapy
While, of course, the main benefit of taking up a Stretch Therapy practice on the Gold Coast is flexibility, there are many other benefits. Better flexibility leads to better posture and longer, leaner muscles. You will also strengthen muscles and correct patterns that are leading to pain and discomfort in the body. Overall, a Stretch Therapy class in our Gold Coast studio will leave you feeling relaxed, restored and regenerated. And really, what more could you want?
