Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a dynamic technique that stretches muscles, tendons, and fascia specific to anatomical planes of movement. It remodels the body using gentle, rhythmic movements that avoid triggering the myotactic reflex, which causes a contraction in the tissues being stretched. Utilizing the principles developed by Aaron Mattes, this unique stretching modality restores joint mobility, reduces muscular/fascial tension, changes neurology and improves circulation. The simple yet profound difference is to avoid triggering the myotactic reflex. Repeated, active muscle contractions along with gentle stretches create a venous/lymphatic pump, decreasing inflammation and combating disease. Dysfunctional movement patterns are exposed. Using pain free movements, the tissues are retrained and balance is restored to the joint.
In this hands-on, basic-level class you will identify the physiology behind AIS and apply essential upper and lower body techniques for counteracting the compromising effects of gravity on posture.
Please wear clothes that are appropriate for stretching.
