Posture and Flexibility Stretch Class (Sherwood/Graceville)
Tuesdays 6.30 - 8.00 pm.
Note that there will be a class on Tuesday the 13th of April. But because of distancing requirements, there will only be room for those who have been to class (at least once) in the last 6 weeks. Once the current restrictions are over, the class will be open again to new and less regular students.
(For other stretch teaching see Splits class and Individual classes)
Classes are currently running, but there are some precautions I'd like to you read: please go to this link.
contact me before returning to class for the first time after the
break, to reserve your space. I look forward to seeing you again! Best
There are also free follow-along stretch class videos available here. All videos can be downloaded to your device, for offline use.The Posture and Flexibility Stretch Class is similar to a hatha yoga class, but based on the Posture and Flexibility (Stretch Therapy) programme (see home page for more details).
Classes run on Tuesdays from 6.30 - 8.00 pm, in the Church Hall of St. Matthews Anglican Church, Sherwood (corner of Sherwood Rd and Oxley Rd; 481 Oxley Rd) (see map). There is ample parking at the site. The entrance to the car park is on Oxley Rd; the hall is the second building (brick) on the left in the car park. Please note that there is a double white line on Oxley Rd outside the carpark entrance: therefore it is not possible to enter from Oxley Rd if you are heading away from the City - you can only enter if heading towards the City. It may be necessary to go round the block (go via Sherwood Rd, then Primrose St, left turn into Quarry Rd, left turn in to Oxley Rd: see map). Classes run througout the year, generally including school holidays (except summer holidays). Occasional classes may be cancelled at other times (as will be announced at the top of the home page - check page for details).
Prices: Single casual class $16, 4-class card $60, 8-class card $110. Class cards may be used for any classes in the year - there is no requirement to use a card up within any particular period.
2-for-1 offer: bring a friend and the friend comes free! 2 people have a class, but you only pay for one!
What to bring: mat (e.g. yoga mat), plus thick folded blanket for extra support, water bottle. Optional: depending on flexibility, you may like to bring a fabric loop (or instead use a folded towel) to reach your leg in leg stretches. I have a few loops available to borrow in class.
What to wear: anything that you are comfortable in that lets you move freely. Footwear: stretch classes are best taken barefoot. However, this can get cold in winter. If you want to use socks, I suggest "Toesox" grip socks. These socks have the best grip for the foot with individual toes, and have rubber grips all over the bottom surface (including the toes), giving very good grip even on slippery floors. See www.toesox.com for the original supplier.
