It started with me being extremely jealous of my friend and fellow lifestyle guru Sarah doing over-splits like it’s the easiest thing on earth. Why would I want to do splits? That’s a fab party trick! Simple as that. (Also, I missed my Russian ballet classes while living in Moscow that pushed my body to the limits and were usually leaving me with the extra dose of muscle happiness – and that feeling never gets old!). However, you might want to consider stretching for splits for the other numerous benefits. Read on to learn more.
Improved flexibility, circulation and range of motion, injury prevention and recovery, improved posture, lengthened muscles and stress relief are fantastic products of stretching. All you need is consistency of repetitions, patience and space. You need to know how stretch correctly, too, – that’s why doing it with a professional and funky team at FRAME Shoreditch is a perfect choice.
A 2-hour workshop with an amazing super-bendy Gede Foster provides a safe environment for a guided progressive stretching. The workshop takes place in a heated studio to increase the strect and ensure it is safe and cosy too. Gede’s exercise demonstration is easy to follow and implement at your own pace. It also helps that you are guided step-by-step and Gede observes everyone’s stretching efforts and corrects the poses if required. So whether you are flexible or you can’t even touch your toes, the workshop will improve your overall fitness and help you get long, lean muscles and ensure you don’t lose strength.
FRAME Shoreditch’s workshops are monthly and the next one is coming up on Saturday, 12th July. Be quick and book your space here: http://www.moveyourframe.com/shoreditch/classes/workshops/splits
