AcroStretch Classes at The Last Carnival

Acrostretch class is for people of all shapes and sizes. So come get bendy with us while you let The Last Carnival help you reach your flexibility and strength goals. This class came about while working in the acroyoga community and noticing that many people did not have a flexibility background based in acrobatics needed to achieve proper form in different poses and movements. Our hope is to bring acrobactic style stretchig to this community and others to help people reach their full potential as acroyogi’s and in other forms of acrobats. This class is not only great cross acrostretchconditioning for aerialists, martial artists, yogis, acrobats, and dancers; it is great for anyone who is wanting to loosen those tight muscles up and move though the day with a little more fluidity. This class will focus on shoulder and hip opening exercises, splits, and back flexibility. This class will get you touching your toes, folding flat on the
floor, in your front square splits and middle splits. Both passive and active stretches will be used to achieve this. The instructor also will move around the room positioning people into correct alignment and giving stretches the extra push that will help further your flexibility.

This is a 75 minute class. No prerequisites required. Instructed by Jeremiah. This class will have space for eight people.  Please come in stretchy clothes and be prepared to sweat!

Why Body Conditioning is Essential for Your Fitness Routine

This class will keep you in constant motion, as you flow through stretches and poses designed to bend and work your body. Flexibility is beneficial for any sport regime, as it keeps your body from overextending quickly and chancing torn muscles. Flexibility is improved by stretching. To be effective while stretching, force applied to the body must be held just beyond a feeling of pain and needs to be held for at least ten seconds. Increasing the range of motion creates good posture and develops proficient performance in everyday activities increasing the length of life and overall health of the individual. The safe and gradual development of strong, balanced flexibility is top priority stretching classes.

Establishing a good flexibility and strength  practice will bring you strength and ease to all other circus practices. AcroStretch is a great complimentary class for the aerial dance and other acrobatics classes offered at The Last Carnival. If you are struggling to get into your splits on the silks or lyra, this class is definitely for you. Wish you could touch your toes to your head when you are upside down in the air or arch your body into more flowing graceful shapes? Are you a dancer or martial artist who is trying to get your kick and leaps just a little further or higher?
