Global Active Stretching (Stretching Global Actif – SGA®) is an original method of stretching that differs from conventional forms of stretching in that it takes into account the 5 principles of “Global Postural Re-education” (Ph. SOUCHARD), namely:
Stretching muscles in the 3 planes of space
Correction of compensations
Contracting muscles in their eccentric position
It is an original and effective method that can be used by anyone who wishes to improve their flexibility so that they can enjoy a more comfortable life, and especially athletes – both amateur and professional – who want to improve their performance and prevent repetitive injuries.
Which is why it is used in high-performance sport.
There’s nothing like a weekly session of SGA to keep fit!
