Yoga Assisted Stretch - 10 hours

Heal | Practice | Assist

Assisted stretching, as its name suggests, is a type of applied stretching technique with the support of another individual. Yogapoint Singapore also includes these stretching techniques in some of our classes, and in the personal one-to-one therapy sessions. It is a passive / static stretch, as opposed to active / dynamic form, that allows for an opportunity to move beyond our natural resistance and to provide a deeper, less superficial stretch.

In this digital age, where we are mostly plugged into the technology world, the tendency to have hunched, elevated shoulders, tight hips and a forward head posture is extremely commonplace. Sitting for extended periods of time can cause our muscles fibers to contract and shorten, especially in our hip flexors and the front and sides of the body, which usually leads to tightness and tension of the body. Our range of motion is thus affected.

As some of these places are not as accessible due to physical limitations or hard-to-reach places, assisted stretching can be beneficial. With consistent stretching, our body is able to remain / improve its flexibility, mobility and range of motion, contributing to healthy living.

This course is ideal for anyone wanting to help others and learn various ways to release tension and tightness in the body. For a Yoga Teacher, it offers you more support and knowledge in posture alignment. This course is a component of  Yoga Therapeutics.
