Innovative Body Solutions teaches Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching Intensive Trainings across the country. Trainings are open to people of all levels and professions - and the only pre-requisite is an interest!
The beginning of class is much like a workshop where we go over the 16 self-stretches and teach you little 'tricks' to make them work better for you, then we do 16 assisted stretches, mashing (massage with our feet), and problem solving. The problem solving is really great because it teaches you how to really resolve some issues that may be going on and whether you need strength, flexibility, or deep tissue work, etc. The class is EXTREMELY hands on.
We would highly advise getting the Resistance Stretching with Dara Torres DVD and flash cards before class - everything else you will receive there. (Full Color Manual, Flexibility Profile, and Trainers Only DVD)
Steve Sierra and Anne Tierney have been teaching Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching Certification Programs since October 2005. They have worked with many different people from extremely diverse backgrounds: from pilates instructors to chefs to business (wo)men to personal trainers.
There are 5 main levels of intensive training. Each level is a 2-day class that is 7 hours each day and typically done on the weekends. There is typically 1 to 1.5 months between levels (but this varies depending on schedule and location). After passing Level I, the trainer is then able to conduct private sessions.
Trainings are open to people of all levels and professions - and the only pre-requisite is an interest! Level I Course - Ki-Hara Resistance Stretching is approved is approved by NASM (1.4), NSCA (1.2), NCBTMB (12), and Can-Fit Pro.”
