      Liv and Kit need your collective help!   10/24/2017

      We are about to make the Absolute Beginner's Stretching series. These will be follow-along, solo exercise programs (no partner work). How do make all those people who need these programs aware of them? I have started a new thread on this topic today: https://kitlaughlin.com/forums/index.php?/topic/1355-absolute-beginners-stretching-series/

  1. START HERE—an introduction to the Stretch Therapy system

    1. Read these threads please before posting, please!

      This is the fastest way to familiarise yourself with a complex system. If it were simple, everyone would be perfectly flexible!

    2. Classes you want

      Please limit the discussion here; what we need to see is a compact list of what classes you would like to see (and suggested durations, too; we are thinking 15', 30', 45' and one-hour classes will be the starting points).

    3. Promoting your work

      Olga's recent success with her new Instagram channel promoting her new Pilates studio prompted me to reach out to our community (and wider) to collect information on how to promote our work in the widest sense. This is the place for all those ideas and discussions.

  7. Relaxation, Rejuvenation, Regeneration, Recommended Reading, and Right livlihood!

    1. All topics relating to the three "R"s; now the "six 'R's"

      The forgotten part of the ST system, and forgotten, too, from the majority of all other Western exercise systems. This is the place to talk about your practise, or to post tips and ideas for teaching relaxation, and the other "r" words.

      "Relaxation" might be a Yoga Nidra-like practise, or a seated/lying/standing meditation.

      I have uploaded a number of scripts and .mp3 files of some of relaxation the scripts I present in various locations, too; please feel free to upload your own for others to try out.

      Added today: the sixth 'R' (Right livelihood). All suggestions we make here will have been thoroughly vetted and digested—and all will have immense impact if you read them too.
