About this event

Learn the fundamentals of assisted stretch therapy in a hands-on, experiental environment.

Join us for a weekend of learning and healing! Explore a new and growing modality of helping others becoming more mobile and embodied. Deepen your relationship to your own body and movement while learning a skill to help others.

About Stretch Therapy

Stretch Therapy works with the fascial system to create more range of motion, reduce tension and stiffness, improve circulation, improve movement patterns and accelerate athletic performance. Using passive, active and dynamic stretching techniques this work is customizable for all bodies.

Stretch Therapy is gentle yet deep, and will leave you feeling longer, lighter and more spacious.

Stretch Therapy works with the nervous system, helping you to relax and drop into a parasympathetic state which promotes healing at a cellular level.

Stretch Therapy is a powerful stand-alone modality of healing and also enhances other healing or manual therapy practices.

Our method of stretch therapy involves work on the table, on the floor and self-stretching.

Who is this workshop for?

Personal trainers, pilates/yoga instructors, breathwork facilitators, dance teachers and movement coaches of all kinds will benefit from a deeper understanding of safe, effective assisted stretching techniques. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of mobility and movement, both in their own bodies and in others.

Physiotherapists, Massage therapists and other manual therapists will find this course material a valuable addition to their toolbox.

As a fundamental workshop, this course is not a complete certification to become a stretch therapist. If you are new to bodywork, this course will give you some basic tools to practice with friends/family and can be a stepping-stone into the world of stretch therapy. If you are already a trained practitioner, this workshop will give you new tools to enhance your existing practice.
