Interview: Suzanne Wylde & Moving Stretch

It’s not Yoga, Pilates, and isn’t even classed as standard ‘resistance stretching’; Moving Stretch is the new practice, treatment and therapy that has everyone feeling better.

Practice: Anantasana Variation & Awareness Of ‘The Moments Between The Moments’….

Although we might remember ‘the important things’ that happen through life, we don’t often easily recall the moments between those ‘important’ moments.
