The Physiology of Flexibility

15:30pm - 19:00pm

To understand how to increase your flexibility safely and effectively can be very challenging; not because the

concepts aredifficult to understand, but because many factors contribute to flexibility. This workshop will

help you understand how to maximize your efforts. During the course, we will weave through lecture and

practice to understand what the myofascia is and its qualities, such as elasticity, viscoelasticity (slow and fast

properties), plasticity, glide, and remodeling, and how our genetics play a significant roll in our flexibility. We will

move through the physiology and practice of active and passive stretching, monoarticular and polyarticular

stretching, and end range neuromuscular activation. The workshop is highly informative and will open the

mind and the body to the complexities of flexibility.
