Workshop Description

Seminar Group-81.jpg

One of the early questions that came up in Emmet’s research was why, within various approaches to stretching, some people get flexible and others don’t. After trying to get to the root of this question he ended up with his current system termed Modern Methods of Mobility.

Building on this system, Emmet will go through different types and approaches to stretching most applicable to the group, leaving you with a clear roadmap of progressions to achieve your personal flexibility goals.

This workshop is suitable for any movement practitioners of all backgrounds and levels looking to perform better, lessen the chances of injury and widen their range of skills as well as a deeper understanding of flexibility training. It is also very popular with coaches and teachers of all disciplines that require flexibility work in adults.

Come along and learn about progressions, regressions and programming flexibility. Principles covered in both classes are the basic principles of task orientated flexibility, understanding the basic relationships with gravity, basic assessment, loaded stretching, end range strength and usage of active shortening to increase range of motion. 

 

Lower Body - Splits:

We'll be looking at principles and techniques for increasing the range of motion and control of the lower body. Using the techniques of loaded stretching, end range strength in both the shortened and lengthened ranges, as well as the integration to full range movements, we’ll be covering side splits and pancake. 

Upper Body - Building the Bridge:

In the second half of the day, we'll be looking at principles and techniques for increasing the range of motion and control of the upper extremities, again using the techniques of task orientated flexibility, end range strength in both the shortened and lengthened ranges, as well as the integration to full range movements. We’ll be covering shoulder flexion and extension, internal and external rotation of the shoulders, T-spine mobility and integrating the above into the bridge / wheel pose.

As an exercise, the bridge is more a display of flexibility rather than a useful stretching exercise. However, the bridge position is vital for many different movement practices including acrobatics, advanced level handbalancing and lots more. In this workshop, Emmet will be taking you through the different flexibility components that are needed to achieve a nice, comfortable bridge position, including overhead flexibility, hip flexors and strengthening for stability. You will get an overview of many regressions and progressions for the fastest and safest way to achieve your bridge.

 

What to bring

Something to take notes, some water, comfortable clothes and your happy stretching face.
