In this weekly stretching session, we will work on improving active flexibility and specifically flexibility in our splits. This class is perfect for anyone wanting to develop active flexibility. Active flexibility is working the stretches in motion and not just in a still stretch on the floor. We will be doing kicks, holds, and other activities to improve our splits and range of motion. We will learn how to work our split skills in a healthy and safe progression. I will be stretching right...
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn the proper stretches and techniques to improve their flexibility and work on their active splits, kicks, and holds. Splits don't happen overnight, but students will learn the techniques to practice safely on their own after class time.
I was a competitive gymnast for over 10 years, and have coached gymnastics on and off for the last 8 years. It's something I love and am very passionate about! With the pandemic, I am not currently coaching in a gym, so I am so excited to get some stretching time with Learners on Outschool!
No homework is required, but students may want to work on their stretching outside of class time.
You will want to have space in your house on the floor where you have room to stretch without running into any furniture. Carpeting is fine, or if you have a hard floor I recommend laying down a yoga mat or something softer to stretch on. Please wear comfortable clothes that you can move around in to class. Leggings or sweatpants are a great choice!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Stretching should be done in an open room with space to move around and stretch on the floor without running into any furniture. We will be discussing safe stretching in class but students should be encouraged to go slowly and work on their splits little by little to prevent injury.
