Introduction Workshop to FRC and Kinstretch® with Maria Pountou
“The body has an incredible ability to improve its capacity and heal itself when properly guided utilising appropriate biological and physiological principles.“
Do you even have fully functioning joints?
Sometimes even if we are long time yoga practitioners we can be surprised how poorly some of our joints work once we get a closer look into their individual function. The primary goal of this workshop is to get each joint working like a real joint. Can it go through its full range of motion? Do you have to involve other joints to “help out”? Is anything painful, crunchy, or pinchy? Are movements smooth and controlled or awkward and jerky?
FRC (Functional Range Conditioning) and Kinstretch® are movement enhancement system that develops maximum body control, flexibility and usable ranges of motion while focusing on gaining control of your passive flexibility by using your muscles (rather than gravity) to attain improved mobility.
The Kinstretch® system is one born out of scientific research. All of the movements and training techniques have been selected based on a meticulous and rigorous investigation of evidence, conducted by physical conditioning and medical experts, as it pertains to body control, injury prevention, joint health, and physical longevity.
What to expect from this workshop:
- Introduction to FRC (Functional Range Conditioning) principals and terminology
- Self-assess your joints
- Identify the areas which you can improve upon
- Develop a meaningful plan to address your restrictions
- You will be introduced to CARs (Controlled articular rotations) to implement into a daily morning routine
- Breathing techniques
- Full Kinstretch® introduction class
