Neck, shoulders & spine workshop
Saturday 25 November 2017
2:00pm to 5:00pm
Restoration Zone, Teneriffe
Co-presented with Diane from Unfold Yoga & Stretch Therapy
In this unique 3-hour session you will learn about the principles behind the system and how to stretch effectively. We will incorporate myofascial release and partner stretching to maximise your experience of tension release from these chronically tight areas - variations we often don’t have time for in a 60-minute class.
Each of our workshops aims to cover different stretches and variations to ensure a unique experience each and every time.
Suitable for those new to Stretch Therapy and regular students looking to deepen their practice.
In this session, you will gain an increased awareness of your body’s unique tension patterns and learn effective methods for (1) releasing lines of tension, (2) improving your range of motion, and (3) alleviating common aches and pains.
Specifically, we will cover:
- Stretch Therapy principles & techniques
- Targeted solo stretches and self myofascial release techniques
- Safe & effective partner stretching
The day will end with a guided meditation to bring you to a state of deep post-stretch relaxation.

Introduction to Stretch Therapy workshop
Saturday 02 December 2017
2:00pm to 5:00pm
Sunspace Cafe, Doonan
Are you feeling tight and holding tension in your body? Or do you simply want to improve your posture and flexibility?
Everyone knows they need to stretch, but for a stretch to be effective the details really do matter.
Join me for this interactive workshop that is designed for you to experience the Stretch Therapy system, and to actually feel the difference it makes when you stretch effectively using proven principles and techniques.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Reconnect: The aim of the workshop is to leave you with a deeper understanding of your body and it’s unique tension patterns.
Feel: You will be guided through full body joint mobility sequences, solo and partner assisted stretches as well as simple self massage techniques.
Restore: Partner stretching is one of the most powerful techniques in the Stretch Therapy system and these variations really have to be experienced for yourself. You’ll learn specific stretches to target common lifestyle related problems such as chronically tight hips and shoulders.
Empower: Everything that you learn will be both diagnostic and prescriptive in nature, not only bringing awareness to your physical tension patterns but also providing a way for you to alleviate the tension once you’ve discovered it.
Relax: The session will finish with deeply relaxing stretches for the neck and shoulders to aid you in alleviating any tension and discomfort you may store in these areas of the body.
Whether you’re completely new to stretching or you’re an experienced yogi, there will definitely be something in this workshop for you.
So come along and reconnect with your body while learning:
- Key principles of safe and effective stretching
- How to identify your own unique patterns of tension
- How to effectively release tension and restore pain free movement
