Stretch Therapy Teacher Intensive program
– Ten full days: Part A and Part B, each five days
– Parts A and B separated by a minimum of six months
– Start teaching immediately after Part A
– Bring your practical experience to Part B
– Numbers: minimum 10, maximum 20
– Presenters: Kit Laughlin and Olivia Allnutt; and, depending on location, a number of Senior Stretch Therapy Teachers
The minimum pre-requisite is four days’ experience in the Stretch Therapy method.
This can be four days of workshop attendance, e.g. an Into the Stretch plus a Deeper Into the Stretch or a ST for Performance, or repeat attendance of a two-day workshop.
Note – Into the Stretch and ST for Performance are each entry-point workshops – neither require past attendance of any other ST workshop. You decide which workshop suits you best.
Alternatively, if you have been attending Stretch Therapy classes, one two-day workshop plus class attendance can also satisfy this pre-requisite. You will need to have attended a minimum of 12 hours of ST classes for this option. And, in your application (see below), please tell us who is your teacher(s).
Mandatory reading and online study prior to Part A:
Stretching & Flexibility (2nd edition) is required reading prior to Part A, along with its update (video material, available online).
All of these programs are included in your registration fee for Intensive Part A. Upon registration, you will be sent coupons to access online.
Further study required for Part B:
Overcome Neck & Back Pain (4th edition) is required reading prior to Part B, along with its update (video material, available online).
These are included in your registration fee for Intensive Part B. Upon registration, you will be sent coupons to access online.
Stretch Therapy is a named modality with Aon as part of their Allied Health Practitioners cover: see HERE.
If you already have professional indemnity/public liability insurance through Aon and – upon successful completion of the Stretch Therapy Teacher Intensive program – you wish to add Stretch Therapy, contact Aon to request this. Generally, there is no additional charge to add a modality to an existing policy.
If you do not have insurance presently, you can apply to Aon.
Other insurers in Australia
If you have professional indemnity insurance already for another modality but not with Aon, please speak directly to that insurer about whether they will add Stretch Therapy to your current policy – often, they will do this upon request.
An insurance policy for ST teachers and apprentice teachers is available in the UK.

Approaching the age of 40 I began to notice several ‘old injuries’ resurfacing. Shoulder, hip and knee were all causing enough pain that I was talking with my GP, surgeons and a variety of health care professionals (physio, chiro, etc). At best I would get a little short term relief but it would not last. The most common advice I received was to do less. I reached a point where i was no longer doing the things I enjoyed, I was in pain and I was not seeing any improvement. It was then I decided to get off the treatment table and back into my body.
This led to studying the Stretch Therapy Mastery Series videos through Vimeo. With regular practice I quickly realised I was on the right path. 12 months later and I am moving with an ease and freedom that I haven’t experienced since childhood. Attending several Stretch Therapy workshops took the gains I had already made to the next level. It was an easy decision to enrol in the Stretch Therapy Teacher Intensive program and I feel incredibly fortunate to be sharing this knowledge and helping to make a positive change in how others experience their body.
If you are someone who is looking to gain a greater awareness of your body, to identify and address imbalances and to put an end to the associated pain (as I was), I strongly recommend Stretch Therapy.
If you are a therapist looking to add an extra modality to your practice, empowering your clients to make a lasting change and an exit from the hamster wheel of healthcare I strongly recommend Stretch Therapy Teacher Training.

My experience was truly amazing while attending Olivia’s Stretch Teacher Workshop. She explained it so clearly and precisely, and I felt confident after the workshop to start taking my own classes. Thank you again Olivia.

I have been working in the fitness industry for 8 years (part-time) and more recently focused on yoga (3–4 years). I have seem a lot of people want to fix their bodies or supplement their athletic regime and have been very frustrated that my knowledge base could not always serve the deconditioned and on the end of the other spectrum the injured athlete.
This course opened up my eyes to a whole new world of practicable possibilities that will give me the tools to guide individuals to fitter more supple bodies. I am so glad that this wealth of knowledge has been opened up to me.
While I have been running / walking lately I have been dreaming of the yoga classes I will hold in the future and how much richer they will now be with this information in tow. I will be practicing on myself as over the weekend I could see that you were all highly attuned to your own bodies (an element essential for a great teacher) and understand that I need to develop these qualities within myself.
