Product Description
 
An aspirational and inclusive guide to freeing u' the body through dynamic movement, focusing on the feel-goo' benefits of stretching. Aside from improved flexibility, these include better posture standing tal' ), reduced back strain and the mental brain boos' that results from increased blood flow during movement.
Move explores dynamic stretching, or slow flowing movement. This is the most effective way to increase joint range of motion (the Move it or Lose i' principle) thereby allowing us to move comfortably and freely, as we were born to do.
Uniquely designed to explore just six key move sequences each containing the main planes of motion- flexion (forward bending), extension (back bending), side bending and rotation. They can be used either as five-minute stand-alone routines, or tagged together to form a longer flexibility sequence as you might experience in a flow yoga class.
Rather than the common format used in stretching books of detailing the science of stretching, followed by a list of exercises, this book puts the six key moves centre stage and spends most of the book explaining and refining them.
The emphasis is on simplicity. There are six key move routines- two lying, one cross-legged, one all fours, one lunge-based and the final one standing. Each routine has just four variations within it. This means the reader does not have to keep switching positions.
The book avoids using yoga jargon or sports science language and instead focuses on the feel-goo' benefits of stretching. In short, the book allows us all you to stretch ourselves happy.
