Stretching & Breathwork

How to include stretching & breathwork into your Kinisi Flow® Class

  1. Choose from one of the stretching videos from the course player. 
  2. Learn & perform the stretch at the beginning of your class. 
  3. You should use & perform the stretch in your class setting for up to 4-6 weeks before choosing another type of stretching position &/or method.
  4. You should use the two stretching types - ie Static Passive or Static Active. 
  5. For the static passive stretching we recommend holding the stretched position for 1-3mins max (x1) - before your Kinisi Flow® session. 


Things to Consider

 Static passive stretching is best suited to a more focused breathwork practice as this will help activate the parasympathetic nervous system, which produces a calm, relaxed feeling in the body and mind. 

 This can immediately reduce the sense of anxiety and stress.

 Therefore will help you & your students move deeper into passive ranges (a deeper stretch) - improving flexibility and will help focus the body & mind for the recovery workout to come for a complete flow experience! 

Breathwork Only Suggestions
 If you wish to add/finish with breathwork only at the end of a class/session we recommend getting into the most relaxed comfortable position possible i.e. laying supine & performing full ‘quite’ breathwork for up to 5 mins. 

Examples

 Box breathing - 5/5/5/5 or 6/6/6/6 (Intermediate to Advanced).
 Deep diaphragm breathing - 6 seconds in, hold for 2 seconds (isometric) and out for 8 seconds.
These are guidelines only & you should encourage your group to experiment with what is best for them.
