In her book Donna explains why traditional stretching methods don’t work. Popular myths are busted such as why holding a stretch for a fixed amount of time misses the point, why dynamic and static stretching net the same underwhelming results unless you learn one simple concept, and why using straps to stretch rob your body of the opportunity to develop the independence it needs to move freely.
The video is an hour-long, full body workout broken down into four series of stretches that target specific parts of the body crucial to creating an effective and meaningful stretch. You will hit different muscles in different ways depending on how much of the workout you do.
