My name is Ashwin Tirodkar. I have been involved with movement and exercise for most of my adult life. I practiced Aikido Kokikai for 15 years in the US. Since moving to the UK I have focussed on weight lifting, gymnastics and rock climbing.
I discovered Stretch Therapy when a gymnastics teacher recommended it in 2014. Since then I’ve been driven to develop a deeper understanding of anatomy, physiology, and how to remodel the body into better movement patterns.
I’ve been mentored by Kit Laughlin and Olivia Allnutt over the last years as I develop my teaching and training. I am now their apprentice. Below is a selection of the training I have undergone over the last few years.
