Stretching is a great way to keep the body flexible and mobile, concentrates solely on flexibility and expanding our range of motion.
Stretching classes are an easy way to get into flexibility.
What are the benefits?
- Helps improve flexibility (increases your range of motion)
- Assists in correct posture by lengthening tight muscles that pull areas of the body away from their intended position (because of so much time at our computers, many of us have tight chest muscles which pulls the shoulders and head forward, leaving us with a hunched shoulder look)
- Potential to decrease injury by preparing muscles for work before activity
- Increases blood and nutrient supply to muscles, thereby possibly reducing muscle soreness
