Take your clients and athletes to a new level of flexibility with Buoyancy Stretches. Learn how to maximize the use of Archimedes' Principle and buoyancy equipment with supine, side, and front working positions. These stretches will enable you to help your client enhance relaxation, breathe more consistently and deeply, and maintain the proper level of body alignment that can help to achieve a fluid and controlled stretch. Exercise videos help with visual descriptions.
