What is flexibility?
Flexibility is defined as the maximum Range of Motion that can be achieved at a certain joint, such as the hip or shoulder. It relates to how far you can move a joint and hold that position. One muscle will relax or stretch, whilst the other will engage, in order to achieve this.
You individual flexibility will depend on various factors, including:
Your natural flexibility, and whether you have any conditions such as hypermobility
The health and condition of the muscles, ligaments and joints
Whether you are assessing static, active or dynamic flexibility
What do flexibility classes involve?
At Feelin’ Peachy our Wirral based flexibility sessions are 1-hour a week of focused work to improve your overall flexibility, with particular attention on the legs, hips and lower back, for those looking to achieve middle and front splits.
Our approach includes a mixture of proven flexibility techniques that will safely build your skills, including:
Strength and conditioning
Active flexibility work
For general health most people should stretch and strengthen for passive and active flexibility 3 times per week, so our weekly class is perfect for those who wish to start a flexibility regime. The majority of the exercises we teach in class are also suitable for doing at home, if you wish to expand your routine to maximise the benefits.
“Do I already need to be somewhat flexible?”
You do NOT need any previous stretching experience, or any natural flexibility, to enjoy these sessions. They are open level, and we encourage you to take the exercises at your own pace.
We also assess each individual to make sure that the work you are doing in class is beneficial and safe.
Most people can safely work towards front splits.
For some middle splits are more challenging due to hip structure, but the health benefits of back, hip and pelvis stretches make these sessions just as worthwhile for everyone.
For those with hypermobility, the strength and conditioning portion of the class will prove essential to supporting their joints to safely move through their heightened range of motion.
