Stretch Therapy for Zenthai Therapists

A 1-day interactive and educational workshop for Zenthai Therapists to explore the physical body through a Stretch Therapy lens.

Stretch Therapy is a system that seeks first to help us gain an awareness of the restrictions in our bodies—our own unique patterns of tension—and to give us some tools to remove unnecessary tension from the body to aid in restoring balance and freedom of movement.

We’ll be playing with a variety of techniques throughout the day such as joint mobility & movement and self massage but the focus will be on solo and partner assisted stretching utilising an approach that helps to facilitate a deeper and often more effective experience.

Some of the topics we’ll cover on the day:

  • Fundamental principles of flexibility acquisition

  • Solo and partner assisted variations of key stretches

  • Neurological reflexes that we can utilise for a more effective stretch

This day is all about experiencing something new in your own body, gaining a new perspective on the art of stretching, and learning some extra self-care options for yourself and your clients.

Cost and payment

$100 per person.

      Neck, Shoulders & Spine Workshop

      25
      2:00 PM14:00

      Neck, Shoulders & Spine Workshop

      Co-presented with Diane from Unfold Yoga & Stretch Therapy, this workshop will be focusing on releasing tension from the neck, shoulders and thoracic spine.

      In this unique 3-hour session offered by teachers Craig and Diane you will learn about the principles behind the system and how to stretch effectively. We will incorporate myofascial release and partner stretching to maximise your experience of tension release from these chronically tight areas -  variations we often don’t have time for in a 60-minute class.

      Each of our workshops aims to cover different stretches and variations to ensure a unique experience each and every time.

      *Suitable for those new to Stretch Therapy and regular students looking to deepen their practice.*

      In this session, you will gain an increased awareness of your body’s unique tension patterns and learn effective methods for (1) releasing lines of tension, (2) improving your range of motion, and (3) alleviating common aches and pains.

      Specifically, we will cover:

      • Stretch Therapy principles & techniques
      • Targeted solo stretches and self myofascial release techniques
      • Safe & effective partner stretching

      The day will end with a guided meditation to bring you to a state of deep post-stretch relaxation.

      Power of Partner Stretching Workshop

      Partner assisted stretching is one of the most powerful techniques we use in the Stretch Therapy system.

      During this workshop we’ll explore the benefits of partnering work that extend far beyond what is possible with a solo practice. We’ll also discuss how to be a good partner and what the unique benefits are for both the person doing the stretch and the person assisting.

      From a practical standpoint we will review some key solo stretches and then we'll explore a variety of partner assisted variations.

      ** Note: this workshop is being run in collaboration with Total Bliss Massage Therapy in Wamuran. Please contact me directly to register! **
