The Stretching Process is a two-day class exploring the benefits of full-body passive stretching techniques on the first day and active stretching techniques on the second day. This class starts by exploring the anatomy of stretching so students better understand how to stretch and which stretches to use with their clients for the best results. However, most of the class time is spent navigating students through actual, hands-on stretching techniques that they can use in their practice.
