Flex It is a stretch class with a difference – SPLITS TRAINING!
The last 12 months of coronavirus restrictions & lockdowns have been an absolute nightmare for fitness instructors. We have had to learn how to set up online classes (that was scary for us oldies!), learn new covid health & safety (added time cleaning before & after classes) and we have stopped and started classes so many times this last 12 months, causing an excess of admin and loss of finances across the board. But, although we have been tried and tested, we are still strong, we are still fighting, and we are still one big burlesque family!
To thank all our instructors for hanging in there with us during the pandemic, Burlesque Chair Dance designed FLEX IT and qualified every instructor to teach these new classes – we gave every instructor a FREE COURSE! That’s right, all our instructors are adding Flex It Classes to their online class timetables, and they’ll be opening live classes too as soon as lockdown is over.
FLEX IT classes are VERY popular online, less space is required, all ages can join in and there’s so many health benefits to a good stretch – both mental and physical.
FLEX IT Classes are child friendly and we welcome kids to join us for online & live classes! All we ask is that they are supervised by their parent or guardian throughout the class. If you are doing your Flex It class online, then make it a family affair? We charge one subscription per household so sign up yourself and the whole fam can Flex It for free!
We offer 2 types of FLEX IT Classes:
Flex It: Scissor Splits – on average our dancers achieve these in approximately 6-9 weeks.
Flex It: Box Splits – much harder to achieve as we get older, approximately 3-6 months so hang in there and keep stretching!
Can ladies with Health Conditions join in?
Yes! There are so many physical and mental health benefits to a good stretch, most health conditions will be made more manageable through stretching and pain levels can be reduced alongside improving your mental state – which we could all use at the moment!
If you have a health condition then look at Flex It as a ‘nice long stretch’ to relax the muscles, ease pain and improve well-being. And it’s a great way to ease yourself back into exercise after a long break cooped up at home!
To manage your expectations when it comes to achieving your splits with a health condition; hip replacements, arthritis, MS, Fibromyalgia, Cerebral Palsy etc – we ask you to listen to your body, and your instructor will do a thorough ‘health screen’ before you start so she can get to know you and offer tailored support and encouragement. You may find it takes longer than average to achieve your splits if you have a health condition, you can still achieve your splits and your body will love the benefits of a good stretch:
Improved Circulation * Injury Prevention * Increased Flexibility * Better Posture * Stress Relief
