Her stretching techniques come from a variety of backgrounds including gymnastics, dance, yoga and contortion. This masterclass aims to lengthen your; hamstrings, hip flexors, your stomach muscles (for backbends!), the muscles around your shoulders, your glutes, your quads and in effect elongate your splits and lines.
