A Comprehensive Stretching Course from CLI Studios!
Don’t carry today’s baggage into tomorrow’s class! CLI Studios is excited to partner with Jennie Morton (Performing Arts Medicine Specialist, Osteopath, MS Psychology) to offer our Studio Partnership Program Members this science-based, full-body stretching course. In this comprehensive 13-part series, Jennie goes deep into the body with the anatomical reasons for safe stretching, self-care, and daily routines, setting goals for different bodies, the ego and stretching, glorification of hyper-mobility, injury risk window, and more. When you join the CLI Studios Partnership Program, you get access to Jennie Morton’s resources and all of our content with over 100+ of the industry’s leading professionals.
Did you know?
Hypermobility is a genetic condition that occurs when the joints have a deficit in certain collagen production. Flexibility is on a spectrum that is at the polar opposite end to stability. Any joint that is inherently very flexible is also inherently very unstable, and vice versa. In this course, Jennie talks in-depth about several stretches you do not want your hypermobile dancers to do and how you can help them prevent injuries. With that being said, you should always follow the rules of strengthening what you stretch and stretching what you strengthen.
Jennie Morton had a long and successful career as a singer, actor, and dancer before being pulled towards the path of health and wellness. Jennie’s first-hand understanding of a performer's physical challenges and daily stresses gives her a great advantage in providing comprehensive injury prevention and injury recovery care for performers. Jennie is also a published author and has her third book coming out this spring!
Take the Hypermobility Test!
A modification of the Carter and Wilkinson scoring system, the Beighton Scoring System measures joint hypermobility on a 9-point scale. The joints assessed are: the fifth or pinky fingers, base of the thumbs, elbows, knees, and spine.
