Course type:

Recorded Skype Session

Featured student:

Kaylee  (dancer)

What I like about it:

This course (the main video) is quite long, which is great for deeper work.

Stacey takes her time to guide Kaylee through the stretches – repeating left and right – with a bit of extra time for the tighter side.

This is excellent for recalibrating flexibility imbalances – in other words, good for everyone 🙂

Another thing I absolutely love is Kaylee’s spirit. You’ll see what I mean when you try the course.

What it does for me:

I’ve noticed that the extra time for my/our tighter side feels very healing.

Especially the deeper work on opening the hips, hamstrings, hip flexors and quads.

Effects after a few sessions:

I’m noticing my hamstrings are feeling more ‘even’ on both sides, which is amazing.

For years my left side has been tighter, thus less comfortable to stretch.

The difference after just a few sessions is highly motivating.

My favourite exercise(s):

I especially loved:

  • The quad/hip flexor opening/strengthening exercise shown in the picture – feels so good!

Happy stretching!
