Definition:

AIS is a sequence of stretching exercises. It encourages flexibility, by combining active stretching and reciprocal inhibition (RI) methods (muscles on one side of a joint relaxing to accommodate contraction on the sother side of that joint). The movements are performed repetitively until adequate progress has been made. AIS is typically done clothed.

What is it good for?

Increases flexibility and strength, and improves balance.
