Intro to Contortion
An introduction to the graceful art of contortion, this 90-minute class builds the strength, endurance, and flexibility necessary to start your journey. We build muscle that stabilizes the joints as you increase your range of motion targeting all those areas that are missed in most conventional workouts. After a delicious warm-up we develop active and passive flexibility in the legs, hips, shoulders, and the spine building towards front and side splits and a beautiful backbend.
There are no prerequisites for this class, but if you have any injuries or health concerns we recommend that you speak to the instructor ahead of time so that they can address any concerns.
Contortion Coaching for the Experienced Bender
This two-hour class is for the experienced bender who already has a regular flexibility practice and is looking for some expert coaching. Providing all the benefits of personalized coaching in a small group setting, each person works to their own level and is given customized exercises to hone their technique and learn new poses and movements including standing splits, backbends, chest stand, and inversions.
The prerequisite for this class is that you have a strong fitness practice and body awareness. Even if you are not super bendy, you must have stretching experience. We do recommend taking some Intro to Contortion classes first to familiarize yourself with our technique. If you are not which class to take, please reach out and we can work with you to get you started.
