Resistance Flexibility & Strength Training (RFST) and The Genius of Flexibility

This workshop will serve as an introduction to self stretching, assisted stretching, and mashing.

* THE GENIUS OF FLEXIBILITY *

The Genius of Flexibility is a program of 16 powerful Resistance Flexibility and Strength Training exercises for every level of practice based on principles from Classical Hatha Yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and personality typing theory. This work was developed by Bob Cooley, author of The Genius of Flexibility.

* RESISTANCE FLEXIBILITY *

Resistance Flexibility is a technique that empowers you to stretch and strengthen your body through the simple use of resistance. This work differs from traditional stretching in that instead of relaxing while holding a muscle in an elongated position, you instead resist the stretch by continuously contracting the muscle as you elongate it. This takes the pain out of stretching, prevents over-stretching, and creates immediate gains in flexibility.

* SELF STRETCHING *

We will begin with self stretching, where you will learn how to use your own body as a workout machine to stretch and strengthen your muscles by using your own resistance.

* ASSISTED STRETCHING *

Later we will pair up and practice assisted stretching, where you will learn how to get stretched and stretch others using each others resistance to generate strength and flexibility.

* MASHING *

We will also "mash" each other, an approach that utilizes the feet to free up energy flow, speed up the removal of waste products from muscles, and help to loosen up tight muscles.

* MORE INFO *

As a group, we will learn how increasing the "resistance flexibility" of a muscle group simultaneously improves the physical, spiritual, emotional, and psychological health of a person. We will explore movements that target specific meridians and organs of the body while also allowing a person to experience each of the 16 Genetic Personality Types from within.

Discover how resistance is the often unrecognized link between strength and flexibility during this active hands on workshop. Appropriate for all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. Expect to work hard, have fun, and feel very relaxed afterward.

* INSTRUCTOR *

This workshop will be taught by Luther Bryan Cowden. Luther is a certified Resistance Flexibility trainer based in Los Angeles, CA who utilizes Resistance Stretching to teach others how to live a life free of pain, tension, and stress.
