*Beginners you may not go as deep as pictured, this is okay, flexibility goals happen over time.
It's for Dancers, Gymnasts, Cheerleaders, Ice Skaters, and Yogis! It is also for teachers looking to add flexibility plans and stretch classes to their existing curriculum, with dance specific improvements in mind.
Hello Yogis! It's for you too! Many yogis also work towards increased mobility as this allows for more flexibility and range of motion in the hips. This translates to ease and freedom of movement and allows yogis to deepen and experience postures that they otherwise were limited in. Of course, in yoga achieving a posture is not the ultimate goal but coming to your edge and extending beyond your limitations is.

Meet Christine, our Flexibility Expert!
A Vital Tool for Beginners, Advanced, Teachers & Yogis
Not ALL dancers are naturally flexible. And for a dancer, especially a beginning dancer, this can be very frustrating! But with the proper stretches, proper approach to stretching and proper stretch sequences EVERYONE can develop a healthy range of flexibility.
The Ultimate Flexibility Bundle does just that. It breaks down the steps, placement and alignment of each stretch. It teaches you how to approach stretching...and YES your approach matters a LOT! And it provides you with an easy to follow weekly stretch schedule. This program is designed for beginners to advanced students and everyone in between. If you do the program you will see progress!
We have people using our program from 8 to 65 years old!
2) Intermediate to Advanced: Even the most advanced and flexible of dancers will benefit from our Ultimate Flexibility Bundle. Avoid future limitations to your turn out and extensions!
Due to the repetitive nature of dance and lack of variety of stretches in the dance world even the most flexible of dancers develop tension or tightness in some area of their body.
The courses in the Ultimate Flexibility Bundle properly stretch ALL parts of the body! This ensures that dancers, even the most flexible ones, aren’t tight in some of the most hard to stretch areas. Such as, their deep 6 external hip rotators and abductors. A VERY common place of tightness in dancers and one that if not properly stretched will limit many dance related movements such as, turn out, leg extensions, arabesques, penches and much, much more.
3) Teachers are you looking for new and effective stretches and stretch sequences that you can easily add to your weekly class curriculum? Then our Flexibility Program can help!

It is a great way to introduce you and your students to a wide variety of stretches that dancers need to be doing to maximize their overall flexibility and mobility.
"While attending and judging dance competitions in Utah, I noticed an increase in flexibility and lines with certain studios that hadn’t looked that way in previous years. I was slightly perplexed because I knew it was something more than just ballet that was getting these dancers to look the way they did. (Effortless flexibly, beautiful lines) After doing some investigating, I found out that these studios had implemented Christine's method into their program." ~Laila Hardman (Studio Owner)
"This training program has been professional and easy to navigate. Christine is extremely knowledgeable and clearly explains topics that are otherwise difficult to grasp. When looking at programs, safety has always been top priority for me as well as those whom I teach. I have full confidence that Christine provides a program that is not only safe, but healing and unbelievably effective!" ~Misty Myler (Teacher)
"I thoroughly enjoyed Christine's Training! All the information is so valuable and accessible. Christine teaches so many stretches and postures that aren't readily used in many dance classes and that take a different approach to the same stretches that have been around. They are so functional and great to add to your existing curriculum to vamp up your regular routine. I love that there are more dynamic postures as well, to help build mobility. I am a huge believer in mindful movement and utilizing the breath for dancers, and this training covers this as well, teaching the use of the breath to achieve the greatest results with the postures. Such a great training!" ~Whitnee Elaine (Teacher)
"I just wanted to let you know that I've attempted the first part of the "Front Splits" series, and I already love it. I am the director of Municipal Ballet Co., a small Salt Lake City ballet company. I've started to try dancing for myself again (after many years away,) and decided to try to conquer my fear of the splits (and other feats of flexibility.) I really like your philosophy, and I'm excited to try it regularly! Thank you." ~Sarah Longoria (Director of Municipal Ballet Co.)
"After just doing the warm up I could feel a difference in my range of motion! The combination of core strengthening and very specific stretching truly changed my flexibility and overall lines! I also love that my body felt relaxed and elongated - which is great for someone who dances more than one style :)"
~Sofia (Freelance dancer in LA and a proud Ailey School Alumni)
"The length of each video was perfect. Also, very easy to understand and follow along. I could pause if needed and Christine explains the stretches so clearly and what they are for (so you know what you are targeting). Great details for each stretch! It works!"

"In short, Christine's method has changed my life. It makes me feel better about myself, my body and my dancing. It has undoubtedly helped me realize how much I can do." ~Lindsay C. Nanshville, TN
"Christine has helped me in so many ways! I’ve improved on my turns, flexibility, strength and decreased the stress in my life. This is great for EVERYONE!” ~Mckinley
"There is nothing more rewarding and self-fulfilling than this class. It has helped me grow as a dancer and an individual. I know how to control my stress and how to manage it without letting it get me too upset. It has taught me that I can get through hard and uncomfortable situations whether it’s real life or holding a really hard (painful) yoga position. I am stronger and more flexible. I recognize my breathing constantly now more than ever especially when I am dancing. I don’t know what I would do without this method. I wish I could take it for the rest of my life. It’s AMAZING! This class helped me figure out what I want to be and helps me get there, in my dancing life and everyday life. I love it.“ ~Alysia P.
"Christine has helped me connect to my body and I feel more confident about myself! I have become way more flexible. This is funny, but I am less stressed. When I come home from class I always feel like myself. I don’t feel so much pressure. I feel like I can do it! When I breath I realize I can do so much more. When I do Christine's method I can feel myself. I could write so much more. I love it!” ~Sami H.
"This class helped me relax, breath, and become more flexible. This made me do better turns, be more flexible, and move better. It makes me feel healthier and makes me want to do this stuff at home!” ~Jessica S.
"I feel more open as I take this class, like nothing can stop me! If you step outside of your comfort zone then you will want to move and feel all the muscles in your body. After I take this class I feel like I can do everything and anything!” ~CC S.
"This class has helped me so much in and out of dance. I’ve learned to never give up, ever, and that sometimes you’re not going to get things the first time but that doesn’t mean you’ll never get it. This class has also helped me use my brain and not just my body in hard poses. Thank you!” ~Lauren C.

"I just wanted to write and tell you what a big impact you have had on my life for the past many years and especially this year. You have influenced not only my dancing career, but have taught me so much about myself and the real world. The lessons you have given me have made me think differently. I feel like I can come tell or talk to you about anything and you will have a solution and you always know the right thing to say. Every week I look forward to attending your class because I finish feeling so much better about myself. No matter what we do I always learn something. I am truly going to miss you classes and everything about them, they have helped me in more ways than I could imagine. Thank you for your example and always pushing me to become better. I have been blessed to have a teacher like you and I will always remember your influence.” ~Haileigh B.
The information, postures and exercises in the flexibility courses are designed to release muscular, fascial and neural tension and greatly improve your range of motion. Christine's particular approach is a highly efficient way to assist in deepening both flexibility and mobility. View all content and follow the guidelines closely; do not force ANY of the stretches. This can lead to pain and injury, which over time, will decrease your flexibility and mobility.
Listen to your body, be patient, be smart and breathe deep. Force will not work when it comes to stretching. Your nervous system regulates flexibility and eventually it will override the force, likely in the form of an injury.
**This program is not intended for individuals with injuries that could be aggravated by stretching.
