........DVD Description........

Join internationally renowned director, choreographer and master teacher, Michele Assaf, as she takes you through a series of stretches that will reduce your workload by removing tightness, so that you can swing your limbs more freely. These stretches transport oxygen to sore muscles and quickly remove toxins from muscles, so recovery is faster for dancers and athletes of all levels. Active Isolated Flexibility works as a deep massage technique as it activates muscle fibers during stretching.

This DVD gives close-up images and descriptions of all the exercises; how the rope is used, and which muscle is contracting to relax the targeted muscle in preparation of its stretch. With the help of Jim & Phil Wharton, Michele will lead you through a complete Active Isolated Flexibility class. In this class you will improve your performance, increase flexibility and prevent injury… your tools to longevity.

Michele Assaf has trained dancers from NYC to LA and internationally for the past 20 years. She is known for her excellence in technique and style. Professionally, she has received a Tony Award Nomination for Starmites on Broadway and has directed and choreographed for The Houston Grand Opera, Mick Jagger, Michael Bolton Tour, Matchbox Twenty and Mariah Carey World Tour 2003.

Jim Wharton, an exercise physiologist known as “the mechanic” for his ability to fine-tune athletes, and his son, Phil Wharton, a sports therapist and competitive long-distance runner, are president and vice-president of Wharton Performance, Inc. in NYC. Their revolutionary Active Isolated Flexibility is practiced in fitness centers all over the world.
