Restore Series: Seven 10-minute sequences crafted to gently relieve tension in every area of your body. Use them daily to safely introduce stretching and prepare especially tight regions for focused mobilization and injury prevention.
- Daily use
- Increase mobility
- Improve joint health
This course is perfect for anyone looking to ease back into moving well and reverse common issues like stiff joints and tight muscles that tend to accumulate with age or a sedentary lifestyle. Restore can be used daily to address major pain points including the ankles, knees, hips, quads, hamstrings, shoulders, and upper back.
Each course can be used as a stand-alone 10-minute intensive for each area of the body, or use all the follow-alongs together for a one-hour full-body mobility session guaranteed to improve your movement and your general comfortability in your body. If you are just starting out, use Restore to ease into movement. If you’re ready for more activity, use alongside Fundamentals to build the perfect base to advance into strength exercises down the line.
Fundamentals: A 20-day introduction to Gymnastic Strength Training (GST). Learn basic body positions and explore ranges of motion uncommon in conventional workout programs. You’ll leave the course with the skills and confidence to succeed with moderate level GST workouts.
- Daily use
- Flexible time commitment
- Learn proper body positioning and terms for strength exercises
- Increase mobility
Fundamentals provides the beginning student with the tools needed to dive into bodyweight training. Breakdown the terms used throughout our GST courses, practice the most pervasive positions, and build your mobility ranges through quadrupedal movements. Use this course daily over 20 days to create a base for easing into strength training classes and courses like Elements. Fundamentals addresses mobility through your whole body, including common sticking points like the shoulders, hips and knees, but may focus more heavily on one area over another from day to day. Use in conjunction with Restore to see more mobility improvements.
Stretch: 45-minute sequences crafted to develop full-body flexibility including Front and Middle Splits as well as Thoracic Bridge. Each routine gradually builds in intensity, making these challenging and productive for a wide range of students.
- Use each weekly
- 45-minutes per sequence
- Moderate to Intermediate
- Increase flexibility
- Build to splits and bridges
Each 45-minute stretch sequence has a specific focus: middle splits, front splits, or thoracic bridge. If you are interested in building these skills, then following along with each series once a week will bring you closer to your goals. If you are less concerned with endpoints, and more concerned with general flexibility, our Stretch courses are still an excellent way to stay limber and combat stiffness and tightness. Using each sequence weekly is recommended. Using them more often will not result in double the flexibility gains, but might leave you overly sore and negatively impact the rest of your training.
Stretch courses can be done on their own, or after your main workout. It is appropriate to schedule Stretch in alongside Foundations, Handstand, and/or Movement. If you are completely new to stretching, consider beginning with Fundamentals or Restore to build a comfortable mobility base before beginning Stretch. The Front Split series opens your hips, hamstrings, quads, and ankles. Expect Middle Split to focus on hip and hamstring flexibility, while Thoracic Bridge targets the upper back, chest, and shoulders.
