KINTORTION

By Anya Shevelyuk

TRAINING APPROACH

Kintortion is the key standard to healthy training from absolute beginner flexibility to contortion level movements. Our methodology is deeply rooted in the study and understanding of anatomy, physiology, kinesiology, and body mechanics. 

 

Kintortion improves mobility, strength, and endurance; through a series of exercises incorporating isolated and integrated active flexibility. Understanding how and why the body moves develops the knowledge and confidence needed to gain flexibility.

CORE FOCUS

 

Kintortion focuses on building quality of movement through repetition. Emphasizing sequential steps for each exercise increases awareness of physical alignment, concentration and breathing rate. This combination is essential for executing the exercises effectively to regain control and reduce stress.

GENERAL BENEFITS

 

Kintortion is a training method that increases flexibility while improving body awareness, reducing pain and enhancing the quality and longevity of movement. Exercises can all be performed easily and safely from the comforts of home using a floor mat, chair, some open wall space and basic stretching tools.

TRAINING THEORY

 

Unlike other flexibility and contortion methods that focus on passive stretching and/or partner assistance, Kintortion builds flexibility using ones own strength. The muscular system is designed to contract the muscles on one side of the body to elongate the opposing side muscles. Applying this method when training increasing the body’s ability to calculate and judge the gradual increase of flexion and extension in a variety of positions.

TRAINING METHOD

 

Kintortion exercises specifically develop strong joints and muscles in the neck, back and limbs of the body. The stronger the muscles around the joint are, the more confident and capable they will become when moving, bending and hold positions. The weaker the muscles are, the stiffer and tighter joints become to protect the body from overloaded external force which can lead to tissue damage.

APPLIED THEORY

 

A body that uses it’s own strength to gain any level of mobility is less likely to be injured. There will be no more need to relying on another person, machine or system of pulleys and levers to push and pull you around. You will be in total control of creating and emphasizing every movement from the leverage you develop inside of the body while keeping the mind, muscles and joints happy and healthy for a lifetime of movement.

 

TRAINING STANDARD

Kintortion is the first flexibility training method to set and divide a standard of several progressive training levels. Each level has a specific set of exercises that need to be fully understood and performed before graduating to the next level of exercises. This division insures that teachers and students alike understand the step-by-step breakdown and strength difference required for each level.

 

ORGANIZED LEVELS

Organizing exercises into several specific levels gives a reference of what end goals are to be met, what can be improved, and what to excel in before graduating to the next level. This systematic breakdown gives a clear outline of what is expected from each teaching and training level. There will be no more wondering what level an exercise fits into and if you are truly ready for the next challenge.

WHO CAN JOIN?

Kintortion is an exceptionally flexible exercise system. Modifications can be made to accommodate individual’s specific needs. These adjustments allow the body to move safer, smarter and more effectively which is vital for injury prevention, movement performance, and overall health regardless of training level. Kintortion is designed for absolute beginner flexibility levels up to contortion level movements.
