Blow away chronic tension and pain with Posture & Flexibility Stretching classes with David Heap. With deliberate focus we gently challenge specific areas in the body providing an opportunity for it to release and relax. The classes actively achieve physical tension reduction and facilitate bodily relaxation. The guided breathing patterns take the mind into the body and link with an active relaxation that the body cannot defy.

These P.N.F. (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation) stretches will carefully take you to the edge of your range of movement, and then, very gently, just a little bit further. I use the Involuntary Relaxation on Exhalation reflex- as you exhale your body relaxes just a fraction. This is a fantastic and safe space to extend you range of motion, balance the symmetry of your flexibility, and release chronic tension.

I will perform each stretch with you, guiding you, describing where you should be feeling the stretch and describing cues on how to overcome the body’s natural desire to avoid the stretch.

The classes are great for those with a sedentary lifestyle or a desk job. No level of fitness is required as there is no cardio component to the session and you will not need a shower afterwards. In most poses we contract the muscle under stretch for 5 seconds before deliberately relaxing the target muscle.

The practices are particularly beneficial for those with arms sore from computer work, sore low back, stiff neck and/or chronically tight legs. Most people who come to my classes have some sort of ache, pain or injury. I do not insist people go outside their comfort zone, if it doesn’t feel right I don’t want you to do it! I also have many alternate versions that can help overcome a sore area.

Over the last 8 years I have helped dozens of people let go of weekly physio or massage sessions. (See the testimonials below.)

The classes are suitable for the beginners and intermediate level students.
Blow away chronic tension and pain with David Heap’s Flexibility Stretching classes. On the exhaling breath we follow the stretch allowing the body to release each specifically targeted area of the body. Every week we release areas all over the body bringing a deep calmness which allows fantastic sleep. Nervous tension is held in the body, when we release the body’s tension the mind can calm and sleep comes- deep, solid rejuvenating sleep. Many participants experience the relief for days, 85% of one survey group said 5 or more days.
