Learn How Stretching Like An Animal Can Help You
Release Tension, Increase Your Stamina And Enrich Your Life
By instinct all animals stretch. They do so to keep their muscles
limber and ready for action. For them it's a matter of survival. They
never know when they may need to push their bodies to the limit. This
is why it's imperative for them to keep their bodies in tip top shape
at all times. Stretching plays a major part in this.
Human beings are no different. If you want to stay in animal like shape
like you must work your body too. In the not too distant past this
wasn't a problem for people as they had to work so hard just to
survive. Who needs to exercise when you spend all day chopping,
tilling, planting and hunting?
With The Modern World
This is not the case in the modern world, however. Instead of walking
places, we drive. Instead of climbing stairs, we take elevators. Most
peoples work days are spent sitting in front of a computer. When we
don't move and stretch our bodies we rob ourselves of natural outlets
to release tension. Our muscles become weak and tight and we lose touch
with our physical nature and life's energies. Ever wonder why you feel
so stiff, sore and tired all the time? This is why.
Stretching, just like the animals do, is the major link between a
sedentary life and an active one. Most people know this but yet few do
it. Why? Because stretching to most people, including myself at one
time, is seen as a tedious and boring exercise. When most people think
of stretching they think of the static stretches they were forced to do
in High School. This is unfortunate as there is so much more to
stretching than this. This is what Animal Stretching is all about.

designed to get your muscles loose and your energy flowing so that the
