Move better with Kinstretch

Kinstretch is a movement enhancement system that focuses on increasing mobility, flexibility, and strength through controlled movements and stretching exercises. Developed by Dr. Andreo Spina, a chiropractor and expert in functional anatomy, Kinstretch aims to improve joint health, body control, and overall physical performance.

Unlike traditional stretching routines that often involve passive stretching or static holds, Kinstretch emphasises active control throughout the entire range of motion of a joint.

You'll do exercises that focus on each joint, helping them move better and become stronger. This makes everyday activities easier and helps keep your joints healthy as you get older.

What is Kinstretch?

What is the difference between Yoga & Kinstretch

While both Kinstretch and Yoga focus on movement, mobility, and body awareness, they differ in their approach, principles, and objectives:

Joint Health Focus vs. Flowing Movements: Kinstretch prioritises joint health and functionality through targeted exercises, while yoga often emphasises fluid movement sequences. While yoga improves flexibility, Kinstretch's focus on joint health may exceed that of yoga. Active vs. Passive Stretching: Kinstretch involves active stretching and controlled movements to enhance strength and control within the full range of motion. Conversely, yoga incorporates active, passive, and dynamic stretching, with some passive stretches potentially lacking in joint control compared to Kinstretch. Anatomy vs. Mind-Body Connection: Kinstretch delves into anatomy and physiology to explain joint mechanics and tissue adaptation. In contrast, yoga focuses on the mind-body connection, integrating relaxation, stress reduction, and spiritual elements alongside physical practice. Goal-Oriented vs. Holistic Approach: Kinstretch aims for specific outcomes such as joint mobility improvement, active flexibility, or injury rehabilitation through structured exercises. Yoga's holistic approach seeks to balance body, mind, and spirit, encompassing a broader range of goals. Instructor Certification and Structure: Kinstretch instructors are certified and follow structured progressions tailored to participants' needs. Yoga classes, on the other hand, can vary widely in style and structure, ranging from structured sequences to more intuitive practices depending on the instructor.

In summary, while both Kinstretch and yoga offer benefits for movement, mobility, and overall well-being, they differ in their approach, focus, and objectives. Kinstretch tends to prioritise joint health, active mobility, and structured exercises, while yoga often emphasises the mind-body connection, flexibility, and holistic wellness. 

Much like Kinstretch and Yoga, flexibility and mobility may sound similar despite being very different.

Flexibility Vs. Mobility

Passive flexibility

Active mobility

Flexibility is how far you can move passively (see the photo above for an example). Yoga is great for improving flexibility as it involves a lot of passive stretching, holding positions where tissues are lengthened, and performing deep breathing or calming the nervous system in those positions.

kinstretch is great for improving mobility and helping to close the gap between flexibility (how high I could lift your leg) and mobility (how high you can lift your own leg).
