Our Functional Flexibility class is scientifically designed to restore and increase muscle flexibility and balance. Using Active Isolated Stretching and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Stretching techniques in combination with mat-work, this class targets the most common troublemakers - the iliotibial band, piriformis, hamstring, and gastroc/soleus (calf) complex - to help prevent injury and maximize performance.
Why Functional Flexibility for Runners?
- It’s a Perfect Complement. Running can lead to injury because of its repetitive nature and the resulting musculoskeletal imbalances. On a physical level, Functional Flexibility restores balance and symmetry to the body, making it the perfect complement to running.
- It is a Secret Weapon. Functional Flexibility possesses secret restorative powers. It includes postures that aid in speedy recoveries from long runs, which is the key to becoming a healthier and faster competitor.
- It is a Stable Base. Functional Flexibility can help work out the tight spots, improve your range of motion, and not only open up joints but also stabilize them.
