Gloria started training at Fit and Bendy in 2015 after overhearing her aerial instructors attribute their flexibility progress to Kristina and rave about Kristina’s teaching method and approach towards flexibility. Being ever so curious, Gloria took her first class with Kristina and was greatly humbled by the amount of strength required for contortion.
She continued to train at Fit and Bendy, first taking intro to contortion classes to build strength and improve alignment for flexibility, then progressing to advance contortion for more focused flexibility training. In the many years training with Kristina, Gloria has not only increased her range of motion, but also improved her body awareness and control. Gloria has been able to apply all she’s learned and gained to the various activities she does outside flexibility training, which include aerial arts, weightlifting, CrossFit, calisthenics, and dance to name a few. As an instructor, Gloria hopes to help guide and assist students through their flexibility journey and foster a positive learning environment for students as they progress.
