Active Isolated Stretching for Self-Care

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a dynamic technique that stretches muscles, tendons, and fascia specific to anatomical planes of movement. It uses gentle, rhythmic movements that avoid triggering the myotatic stretch reflex, a protective contraction in tissue being stretched. The neurological end result is a more balanced, parasympathetic state.  AIS prepares you and your clients for any activity and promotes faster recovery after an injury.
In these basic-level classes you will explore how to stretch yourself and distinguish what each stretch should feel like. Use the techniques to stretch your entire body while evaluating your own range and movement potential. Apply this knowledge to build a home stretching program for your clients’ own self-care. Course content is geared towards healthcare and fitness professionals.
