Class Introduction

Stretch Therapy is the thinking person's yoga
Effective methods to achieve more flexibility in daily life, in your yoga practice, and in high performance modes.

This class will focus on pain management and mobilising the tightness in specific areas of the body. Neck and jaw, neck shoulders and thoracic, both great for singers. Likewise feet core and postural adjustment. Hands fingers forearms for musicians and computer users.

Your teacher: Indija Mahjoeddin
After decades of body training and dance analysis, a background in dance, martial arts, movement notation, and deep dabbling in Pilates Feldenkrais and yoga, I was motivated to teach this Australian stretch system over others because I find it to be in harmony with my tacit knowledge of body mechanics and a fast track to achieve maximum effects from your bodywork. Good for deepening extreme stretch, introducing gentle flexibility and for pain management in chronic conditions. All ages and levels will benefit.

Short Introduction and Accomplishments

I have tertiary training in dance and movement (western & eastern), advanced Indonesian language, and gained my teaching qualification for Stretch Therapy in 2016.  In addition I hold a Masters (MCA) in intercultural theatre and pursued Lighting Design and a Commercial Art certificate at TAFE. My career has been dominated by making theatre events featuring indonesian martial arts, dance, oral epic storytelling and music, often with a LOTE bahasa and cultural diversity focus for schools). Ive consistently taught dance (including flamenco and other world dance styles), dabbled in cabaret/vaudeville and specialised in movement integrity and body awareness. I endorse Stretch Therapy because of its biomechanical & philosophical underpinnings. 

My teaching philosophy: Hands on, deeply informed, balancing a self discovery approach with as much theory as the client needs, and using cross disciplinary learning modes. I am passionately committed to finding pathways to transcend limitations of habit whether in language, bodywork, performance or sustainable life skills. 


When not teaching I'm making porcelain art works or dancing on tables to any Balkan cocek.
