Stretch Effectively

Are your muscles feeling tight?

Pause for a second…they might feel tight but from my almost 20 years of experience in the women's health space it probably means that there's an imbalance in the body. 

*I don't want you to force a stretch JUST because it feels good at the moment.*

It's really common to round forward, collapse into a stretch and hyperextend areas of your body.

When you think about in that perspective, all that goes through my head is NO WONDER YOU ARE EXPERIENCING BACK PAIN.
 
>>This is why I like to teach stretches that are dynamic and active to encourage the fascia to become stronger in a lengthened position.<<
 

Here are 4 of my tips to effective stretching:

  • Work to create a light fascial connection as this will allow you to create opposition, length and space in your body.
  • Lift up out of your pelvis as you bend over to stretch instead of rounding and pulling in your back.
  • Avoid overstretching as it can lead to injury and imbalance in the body.
  • Find what areas need to be strengthened but in a lengthened position.
