Vision: Our stretching modality, FFT, is used by athletes worldwide!
Our History & Growth: If it wasn’t for a calf muscle spasm we may not have ever come to be!
If you’ve ever experienced a muscle spasm, usually from a repetitive strain injury, your body can feel stiff, sore and you may experience joint pain. The tension in the muscles caused from the muscle spasm prevents you from moving easily and may cause muscles to tear when you stretch.
A muscle spasm experience is actually what brought the founders, Julie Donnelly and Ana Johnson, together.
Ana Johnson is an amazing yoga teacher, but she was having a calf muscle spasm that would not release with the Yoga stretches she had come to rely upon – so she went seeking for an answer. Ana found her answer on the internet, of course, and it linked her right to Julie Donnelly.
Together Julie and Ana formed TriggerPoint Yoga, a combination of trigger point muscle release techniques and Hatha Yoga stretches. TriggerPoint Yoga was designed to help Yoga practitioners stretch without injuring muscles that were tied up in knots (a muscle knot is also know as a muscle spasm).
And then an amazing transition happened! We realized we were limiting our system to just Yoga practitioners when endurance athletes were in pain and in great need of something that worked! It was a no brainer, Ana was an endurance athlete in cycling which is what caused her muscle spasm and Julie has been working with endurance athletes for over 20 years in her muscular therapy practice.
Then along came JoAnne Schaub to help get the word out! JoAnne brings years of yoga knowledge and online savviness to serve our growing community.
Same GREAT PROGRAM known by two names TriggerPoint Yoga and Focused Flexibility Training.
If you have a muscle spasm it doesn’t matter whether you love yoga or you love sports, you’ll definitely REAP THE BENEFITS of Focused Flexibility Training!
