Active Isolated Stretching, The Mattes Method

Imagine being in the first 10% of sailing captains to understand that the world is not flat ~ radical information, but really helpful if you want to sail the world. Our next course is a 5-day @ Esalen April 27-May 2, 2014. Be among the first fitness professionals to discover that stretches held less than 2 seconds are the most productive. Participants will be able to observe, experience, and practice each stretch with one-on-one assistance. IN THIS COURSE YOU WILL LEARN WHY THE 2 SECOND STRETCH IS EFFECTIVE AND HOW TO USE IT FOR YOUR CLIENTS AND CLASSES. Epic mineral springs & world class food is included. Increasingly, Active Isolated Stretching is the flexibility program of choice for elite athletes, rehabilitation, coaches and personal trainers. This form of dynamic stretching is ideal for injury prevention & rehabilitation, fitness and wholistic health. Experience a new range of motion with the most effective and specific stretches for you and your clients. Active Isolated Stretching's unique approach honors how the body really works. We utilize the principle of reciprocal inhibition and work with the stretch reflex rather than trying to over-ride it. AIS creates unparalleled results in ROM and elasticity of muscles, tendons, and fascia. Diane Waye works closely with Aaron Mattes, creator of AIS, to give you the most up-to-date teaching.
