The fitness industry revolves around trends. Over 20 years I have watched these trends, careful not to fall for the 'next thing' only because it was the next thing. Ki-Hara is NOT a trend, it is a resistive stretch modality.
I mention this to explain my ‘awe’ and excitement for Ki-Hara resistance training and the benefit it can bring to anyone. I work with people everyday in fitness and see their tightness & pain due to consistent exercise without proper stretching OR people unable to workout due to the same. Discovering resistive stretch is enlightening, exciting, and when performed consistently can help anyone.
Ki-Hara resistance stretching is a modality that problem solves injuries, imbalances, and weaknesses through dynamic, eccentric resistive stretching. It is a form of flexibility, strength, and core training that is combined into one. You will feel instant release of tension, increased energy as the muscles are stripped of toxins, improve your body mechanics, and engage underactive muscles.
You will learn self-stretching techniques that incorporate muscle activation and muscle balancing to ensure that your body is working at its most productive state. Ki-Hara is used to remove the layers of tension that may be covering up the true cause of pain. You are likely to see an immediate increase in strength and flexibility. Ki-hara helps people of all ages and abilities - from injury recovery, chronic back pain, muscle weakness, frozen shoulder, etc.
Your muscles will be contracted and lengthened at the same time. This is A VERY SAFE form of flexibility training as the muscles can only be taken through a range of motion if they are able to produce a force.
Class sizes will remain small to ensure individual problem solving.
