I. A book to read:
WEE SMALL STRETCH BOOK …
WEE SMALL STRETCH BOOK by Kathleen. Brimming with education about breathing and muscle stretching and alignment cues, the book has information too detailed to present in visual pace in a DVD. And you don’t have to plug it in. Or recharge it. Just pack and portage it. Take your FLEXAGILITY class on the road or home.
From the book:
… Read the section titled ‘Stretching Essentials’ to determine general rules about enhancing flexibility. Read ‘Master Breathing’ to gain a mastery of this otherwise inevitable process. Read ‘Caveats’ as often as needed. The entire sequence of stretches in ‘The Practice’, which follows, has a logic. Often there is not time for such full theory, though. Then follow ‘Can Do Today’.
Really, though, you are encouraged to take this as a process. A process to conscious stretching. Do not feel that you have failed if you cannot hold a stretch as long as the breathing cycles will ask of you. You have not failed if you cannot hold your arms in the air for very long. Pick three stretches to start. Choose those you like. It is okay to like this work and to like moving your body and to feel good moving. Practice those three for ten days. Pick three others. You can choose any three but you don’t have to choose what order to do them in; just follow the sequence in the Practice. “Ritual should make you conscious, not bored.”
