Alixa is a former Rhythmic Gymnastics Trainer at national level and a Contortion Trainer for circus. She developed her techniques for teaching flexibility after seeing so many athletes have to quit from injuries due to improper stretching or lack of stretching. Alixa created her program with a unique blend of non invasive stretching techniques from studies of Russian and Chinese techniques, sports physical therapists, circus, Pilate’s, sports doctors, flexibility studies, and working with thousands of athletes from various sports. She is constantly creating new material based on emerging studies – evolving her techniques to suit people’s current lifestyles and changing bodies. Her stretches all can be done at home and get results fast, often an instant improvement can be seen.
