Stretch Therapy for Performance
Presented by Kit Laughlin and Olivia Allnutt
This workshop is for all women and men involved in dance, gymnastics strength training, martial arts, the pole dance world, free-runners, and Parkour practitioners.
ST for Performance is for anyone involved in any activity where superior active and passive flexibility is necessary. So often it is missing.
We will present solo and partner versions of most exercises. We will cover all necessary partial poses, progressions, limbering elements, and associated techniques (like fascial releases, Contract–Relax, pulsing, ballistics, etc.) to be able to:
- do a full squat
- have full hip mobility
- do a pike (legs together, face on shins)
- do a pancake (legs apart, chest on floor)
- have full shoulder extension and flexion
- do a full back bend (the bridge)
