In most cases it involves static series of movements, but there are also dynamic forms of stretching. In between exercises less power is required for stretching; the exercising person may develop an intentional control over his/her muscles.

Our body needs to be flexible, strong and mobile in order to achieve proper operation. Stretching movements can be carried out according to our own rhythm. The movements help to loosen up muscle cramps and stiffness. They also develop the stamina and adaptability of the muscular system.
