Self Stretching

Becoming Aware of Your Profile

Performing the 16 self stretch energy series allows you to explore every major muscle group of your body. As you continue in your practice, you discover a profile detailing the strength and flexibility of each of these major muscle groups. You discover which muscle groups are tight, which are flexible, which are weak, and which are strong, along with the discovery of any asymmetries you may have.

Upgrading Your Profile

Once you become equipped with the knowledge of your current state of being through awareness of your body's strength and flexibility profile, it becomes difficult to not want to upgrade the areas of your body that could use improvement. You begin to use your own body as the ultimate workout machine by resistance stretching the tight muscles and strengthening the weak muscles. Over time, you begin to divert from the 16 stretch energy series in order to focus on the muscle groups that 'have some catching up to do' and require more work than others. You divert from the structured path of pre-formatted prescribed self stretches and develop new ways to resistance stretch and strengthen yourself.

Becoming Aware of Concomitance

As you remove areas of chronic tension/pain from your body, you discover the connections between that tension/pain and the other areas of your life. At first, the physiological changes may be the most immediate and obvious. For example, many people report improvements in digestion, bowel movements, energy levels, sexual drive, and quality of sleep after beginning to stretch. It soon becomes obvious to you that when a certain part of your body feels bad, other parts of your life also feel bad. So it goes to follow that when you make a particular area of your body feel good, then another particular area of your life will simultaneously feel good. You begin to understand that it's impossible to make an improvement in one part of your self without it reflecting in all other parts of your self. The connection between your physical body and your spiritual, emotional, and psychological bodies is revealed over time.

Becoming Fully Equipped to Consciously Create

You eventually become equipped with the knowledge and tools to upgrade whatever area of your life that you want to upgrade. You realize that living with tension/pain/stress is an option and choice instead of an inevitable part of life. You become aware the ability to live in your body as you see fit and as a result you are also able to live your life however you see fit. Infinite possibilities. You are equipped with the knowledge and tools to upgrade your physical, spiritual, emotional, and psychological health.
