One of the early questions that came up in Emmet’s research was why some people get flexible and others don’t within various approaches to stretching. After trying to get to the root of this question he ended up with his current system.
While the answer still eludes him due to flexibility being a multicausal phenomenon in the human body, what he is left with is a very practical system for categorising all the variables within the spectrum of flexibility and mobility development.
Once these variables are understood all the various types of flexibility and mobility systems can be quickly categorised and a person's own level and type of stretching that is suitable for them can be found and utilised for rapid progress.
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.
These masterclasses are suitable for any practitioners looking to perform better, lessen the chances of injury and widen their range of skills. It is also aimed at and suitable for coaches.
The masterclasses are limited to a maximum of 25 participants. Please be sure to book your spot well in advance if you would like to participate. The tickets are sold on a first come first serve basis.
This masterclass is aimed at people who have a basic level of flexibility and want to achieve the splits- Front and middle splits will be covered. Emmet will be taking you through the different flexibility components that are needed to achieve a nice, comfortable position in splits. You will get an overview of many regressions and progressions for the fastest and safest way to achieve all the flexibility you need for your practice.
Building the Bridge
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 masterclass, 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.
