Active flexibility: TUESDAY 20:45 - 21:30
Active flexibility training differs from its counterpart, passive flexibility, in the way that it involves you “actively” pulling your muscles into a stretch. Ever seen a dancer jump into a beautiful split? That's active flexibility! This is what our focus is during this lesson - so there will be a strength component to express greater control through a full range of motion. There is some passive stretching at the end of class to cool your muscles down appropriately. So - whether you are looking to prevent injuries, or craving those beautiful lines - come along and give this class a go!
PASSIVE FLEXIBILITY: tHURSDAY 19:15 - 20:00
In this class we will be practicing a range of different stretches and techniques to help you achieve your splits. You will always be working at a level suitable to you; whether you have just begun your flexibility journey or are pilling up the blocks for over-splits! With deep electronic music playing in the background to help relax your mind and body, you will be surprised by how much progress you can make in this class. Lessons consist of PNF stretching, dynamic movement and partner work; promising to be varied and fun, whilst still remaining focused on your end goal!

THURSDAY: 20:15: - 21:00
This is a back and shoulder flexibility class. The aim is to develop body awareness to unlock existing flexibility and then increase the range of movement in the shoulders/back through a series of effective yet controlled stretches.
The classes include:
- An energetic warm up to start mobilising the joints, get our hearts pumping and wake up our nervous systems.
- A variety of static, dynamic and ballistic stretches, including many of my favourite PNF and partner stretches, with a strong emphasis on learning safe technique to mitigate against injury.
- Exploring the relationship between the body and mind, including ways to "trick" our brain into permitting extra range of motion and how to recognise when limits have been reached.
- Utilising foam rollers, blocks and yoga straps to facilitate progress.
- Developing muscle strength to protect the joints and muscles from risk of injury.
- A calming cool down to rest our bodies and minds to initiate recovery.
All exercises are taught with a range of progressions and regressions to ensure everyone can train at their own level and pace.
