Lastics® is a stretching technique born directly from the world of dance that releases tension, increases flexibility and stimulates circulation by teaching you how to move your body in ways that stretch and elongate your muscles from end-to-end. Not only is it a stretch workout like no other, it will also change the way you think about, and understand, your body.
Lastics was designed by Donna Flagg, a trained dancer, to give people of all ages, body types, and fitness levels a way to improve their flexibility based on techniques dancers use to stay lean and limber.
Improved flexibility results when you know how to articulate your body in ways that isolate the ends of your muscles to gently pull them in opposite directions. Unlike methods that rely on external force to push a stretch, Lastics trains your body to move internally to stretch itself. That is how dancers move the way they do and it is also the key to their flexibility. They move from the inside first. This is what makes Lastics so different and it is a difference you will feel immediately.
Everything you need to stretch in a safe and meaningful way lies within your body. If you learn how to move your hips and spine, and then use your arms, legs and head as natural weights, you won’t believe the results! You will move, perform and feel better with muscles that are longer, stronger, more supple and healthy from the inside-out and from end-to-end!
