About Pravilo

Pravilo is a Russian method of fitness training designed to stretch, strengthen, and enhance physical performance. The method was developed in ancient Russia and was used by warriors before battle. It works to stretch and strengthen the internal framework of joints, tendons, and ligaments, as well as improve mental clarity and ability to work under stress. By stretching all the connective tissues and removing knots and blockages, Pravilo practice increases bloodflow to the entire body. The end result is a stronger, calmer, and more agile body and mind. The benefits of Pravilo have a wide range of applications. When used simply for relaxation and gentle stretching, it improves circulation and imparts a general feeling of well-being. When used for performance enhancement, it drastically increases the strength of muscles and joints and improves athletic performance.
