Created by Suzanne Wylde, this is an amazingly simple, effective and enjoyable way to stretch. A revolutionary new method, it focuses on re-conditioning and releasing the body’s fascia, so that people are free to move and be, without pain or limitation, helping them to be faster, lighter, stronger, taller and more open in their posture.
Our aim is to help people to learn to stretch in a way that is powerful, effective and satisfying and sharing that information through books, videos, classes and one-on-one sessions.
Moving Stretchtrainers provide high-quality classes and one-on-one sessions. Dedicated to movement, health and exercise, they each bring an individual slant to their Moving Stretch teaching.
Our Level 1 Trainers give amazing self-stretching classes and one-on-one sessions. Our Level 2-5 trainers can also provide one-on-one walking massage and assisted stretching sessions. They have all passed rigid assessments and are fully certified and insured.
Founder of Moving Stretch® BSc (Hons), BM (Beijing), MATCM
Suzanne started her journey in the art of movement, health and wellness, with studying Tai Chi at the fairly young (for this sort of work) age of 16. This inspired a love of Chinese medical theory and she went on to complete a 5-year degree in Traditional Chinese medicine, which included 6 months studying in the hospitals of Beijing. She then co-ran a practice within a running shop and worked with people suffering from a wide range of sports injuries and others who wanted to avoid injury and boost their performance. She also worked with clients from many different backgrounds and a wide range of health and physical issues.
A few years after graduating she was lucky enough to successfully apply for the only paid NHS job for an acupuncturist in the UK, in Kingston Hospital pain clinic, where she worked on many people with acute and chronic pain conditions, and other issues such as MS and chronic fatigue. After 11 months of working in the NHS for 3 days a week she had given over 1500 treatments (not including her private practice) greatly expanding her knowledge and experience of working with both pain and the body as an integrated and sensitive system.
At this point she had already begun her resistance stretching journey, self-stretching at home and seeing remarkable benefits. She then went to Boston and completed a 6 month full-time course in resistance stretching with Bob Cooley, becoming a fully qualified stretching trainer and one of only a few within the UK.
After practicing for several years, she combined over 10 years of experience as a therapist to create Moving Stretch®; a system of stretching which can be accessed by people from many different backgrounds, ages and levels of ability. It is designed to work well alongside sports and physical activities that people already do (helping their performance and technique) and also to help people with specific issues including posture, limited ROM and pain. She believes that freedom of movement is essential for a healthy and happy life, and loves helping people to free their bodies.
Suzanne works in London offering private sessions and teaching training courses and also offers workshops worldwide. Check our Events page for news of workshops and classes that are open to the public.
Sessions with her are available in London on Wednesday-Friday from £80-£110. Please email Suzanne@movingstretch.com for appointment enquiries.
