KI-HARA RESISTANCE STRETCHING & FLEXIBILITY TRAINING
One-on-one or shared sessions can be combined with Yoga & Pilates for a customized workout.
Ki: the circulating life energy that in Chinese philosophy is thought to be
inherent in all things
Hara: The vital centre of the self, the focus of existence
Refined by Steve Sierra and Anne Tierney of Innovative Body Solutions, Ki-Hara is flexibility, strength and core work incorporating concentric and eccentric training to develop strength and flexibility in multiple planes of movement for muscular performance. It’s like no training you’ve ever done before. During Ki Hara, muscles are contracted and lengthened at the same time. Before and after the assisted stretch sessions, you’re muscles will be “mashed” - a technique of deep tissue and fascia release to help loosen up muscles, flush toxins, and get maximum
Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching is a comprehensive and innovative approach to flexibility training. By contracting the muscle as it is lengthened, tension and torque is taken out of the muscles and joints. The results are more powerful, explosive and core stable movements, protection from overstretching, effectively addressing muscle imbalances which are at the root of most injuries. It is a balanced and integrated approach to well-being and creates lasting change.
Olympic swimmer Dara Torres trains with Steven Sierra and Anne Tierney of Innovative Body Solutions and calls Ki Hara Resistance Stretching her “secret weapon”. More and more athletes are adding Flexibility training to their routine to reduce injury, improve recovery and perform at their peak.
