Most standard-of-care stretching is based on the premise that we should over-ride the stretch reflex. Instead, what if you RESPECT THE BODY'S NATURAL REFLEXES, HONOR HOW IT REALLY WORKS & PROCEED FROM THAT PREMISE? THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT AARON MATTES HAS DONE WITH ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING! IN THIS COURSE YOU WILL LEARN WHY THE 2 SECOND STRETCH IS EFFECTIVE AND HOW TO USE AIS FOR YOUR CLIENTS AND CLASSES. this form of dynamic stretching is ideal for Athletes, injury prevention & rehabilitation, fitness and wholistic health.
