Posture and Flexibility (also called Stretch Therapy) is a stretch programme that aims to increase suppleness, tone the muscles, and relax the body. Posture and Flexibility includes exercises for strength, flexibility, and mindfulness. It helps to maintain a healthy and responsive body that is able to flourish in a natural way; it also aims to increase the awareness of body sense and body alignment, and to reduce stress and refresh the spirit.

During the class, there is an emphasis on correct form, which not only helps to ensure safety, but enhances body awareness and maximises mindfulness. These skills are valuable for maximising physical and psychological health.
