But there’s also intense stretching to improve body flexibility, allowing advanced acrobatic figures as splits or bridge.

In general, stretching is essential to decrease the effect of body aches, but also to avoid injuries.

This practice leads the body to develop itself with a balanced approach based on safe stretch, recovery and plenty of stretching postures and moves.
