In the last 3 decades we have been informed by science that clinical stretching has insignificant effect on flexibility. This raises the question how do patients recover their range of movement after immobilisation and how do dancers and Yoga practitioners achieve their remarkable flexibility.
This workshop will look at the fascinating science of flexibility, how it is changing our understanding of the practice and the new directions we should be considering when supporting individuals recover or enhance their flexibility.
