“I feel so hopeful and inspired after the retreat & I’m really keen to keep that energy going & bring it forward to meet my goals.”

Ais

“Having this intensive in person time willtake your mindset from

“maybe I’ve reached my limit” to “the limit does not exist!”

Soph B

“Thank you for holding space for me to cry during back bending. I certainly didn’t expect to cry but it did feel good to break through that mental block”

Jane

“Eley Pushed us (in the best way) beyond what we thought was our comfort zone, to a new unfamiliar but awesome territory in terms of our flexibility and mindset”

Raneem

“Just WOW! Going to this retreat is by far one of the best things I’ve done for myself for as long as I can remember. It’s not just a flexibility retreat, It’s being able to open your mind to the possibilities.”

Sarah

The retreat represented such a mindset change for me in my flexibility journey. I’m still at the start of that journey but I’ve come a long way in my head, which is a beautiful feeling.

Aisling

“I can’t stop talking to anyone who will listen about this retreat. Such a phenomenal investment of my time and money to support my overall well-being”

Monique

I can’t get over the effort you put into this retreat, it was all so seamless and perfect for us. We were so absolutely pampered and on top of that, it was the most perfect hospitality experience of my life”

Anat

“I really thought after popping my knee a few months ago, I’d never feel stable and strong in my fronts splits. So the fact that I managed a fairly square split that felt strong enough to take my hands off, was HUGE for me!! “

Christina

Had a BLAST at the Flexersize Retreat. Whilst I went to work on my Flexibility,

I learnt so much about myself and my capabilities.

Anat

 

Eley is incredible at what she does. Even when you think can’t go further, she knows exactly what cues or adjustments you need to make sure that you can continue to strengthen, lengthen and grow your flexibility and exactly how to articulate those so you’ll ‘get’ it.

Sophie B

 

“It was an amazing expeience to bond with likeminded women who share the same love of dancing & flexibility.

You went above and beyond with the luxury aspect of the retreat. It was really rejuvinating to get away and feel pampered for a while. The food was amazing too!!”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

PROGRAM DETAILS

If I sign up today, do I have to start the program now? Or can I start when ever I am ready?

We understand life can get busy so we have set the program out so you can start when ever you are ready. Once you sign up, the program will be drip fed to you (as each program is structured differently, please see each specific page for clear info on the program length/layout) Once you have received all of the content of your chosen program, it is yours to keep and use forever so there is no rush to get started or finished.

Are your programs suitable for kids?

Our current programs are recommended for members 16 years and above. 

As our programs are focussed on deeply educating our members on their bodies we spend a lot of time explaining how and why everything works so that they can become much more aware movers. Depending on how your child (16 years and over) learns, this may or may not be an appropriate tool for them.

WHICH PROGRAM IS RIGHT FOR ME?

I’m a complete beginner and not very flexible, which program would you recommend to me?

All of our programs are super educational, which means we spend lots of time explaining to you how to approach each movement in as much detail as possible. Depending on what your flexibility goals are, you can check out any of the following programs which are all aimed at complete beginner - Intermediate level movers. We have plenty of regressions and progressions to suit your needs in each program which means as you become more flexible and stronger you will be able to level up your training as required.

I already have my front splits TOUCHDOWN but it’s not very square what program do you recommend out of the beginner and advanced front splits programs?

We advise all of our member to really solidify their true square splits before moving on to the advanced program. The reason for this is that when we move into deeper range of motion in the advanced splits program, if there are compensation patterns there may be risk of overuse/ underuse of areas and increase your risk of injury. We love the mantra - ‘Feed your inner beginner’ if you feel like there are missing foundations in your splits training then the beginner option will be a great way to go back to basics for a stronger body in the future

I recently injured my hamstrings, is it ok for me to join one of the splits programs?

This is a pretty broad question as there are a number of different hamstring injuries that may require a rest from stretching. A very common hamstring issue that can be irritated by stretching is Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy. Our advice is to seek appropriate direction from an alien health professional who should take you through a full rehabilitation program and give you the all clear to begin stretching again. If you’d like more detailed explanation of why we advise full recovery before moving into more advance splits stretching, please read this blog by our good friend Simone, AKA: The Pole Physio 

Injury Spotlight - Proximal Hamstring Tendinopathy

If you have been given the all clear to begin your stretching training again, our programs will be an amazing tool for you with a huge focus on building full body strength to balance out any weaknesses and miss alignment which will help you continue to take the load off the hamstrings and stretch much more safely, to keep you injury free going forwards.

My hamstrings are really tight, which program do you recommend?

All of our programs are designed to help you build more balance and freedom in your entire body. This is because the body is one whole unit, when one area is tight, it’s very likely that there are weaknesses and imbalance in other areas of the body too. The hamstrings sadly, tend to be the scape goat for these areas but as mentioned aren’t always to blame. 

We suggest if you have very tight hamstrings to check out any of the following programs as all have beginner regressions to suit your needs and will really help you start to build mobility, strength, stability and flexibility throughout to take the load off your hamstrings once and for all. 

Beginner Front Splits Middle Splits Back Bending For All Intro to Active Flexibility

My Hip flexors are really tight, what program will be the most useful to me?

We recommend our Back Bending For all and Beginner Front splits programs for tight hip flexors. Both have a big emphasis on hip extension and gluteus’Hamstrings engagement which will take the load our of your hips and lower back. WIN! Click below to check them out 

Beginner Front Splits Back Bending For All

Please read below for all info about Theraband as shown by www.pharmacyonline.com.au and use responsibly. 

Ingredients/Material Natural rubber latex. 

Directions For Use 

  • Use the band prescribed by your physician or therapist for the prescribed sets and repetitions. Rest between sets. 
  • For beginners, perform the exercises without the band until you are comfortable, then add resistance. Begin with 8 to 10 exercises that target major muscle groups. 
  • Exercise with the color band that was prescribed for you, or with a color that allows you to complete 2 to 3 sets of 10 to 15 repetitions with mild fatigue on the last set. 
  • Progress to the next color band when you are able to easily complete the 3 sets of 10 to 15 repetitions. 
  • Caring for Your Resistance Band 
  • Always examine the resistance band before use for small nicks, tears, or punctures that may cause the band to break. If you find any flaws, discard the product and replace before performing any exercises. 
  • Store all resistance bands out of direct sunlight and away from extreme temperatures. 
  • After use in chlorinated water, rinse the bands or tubing with tap water and dry flat. 
  • If the bands or tubing becomes sticky, clean with mild soap and water, dry flat, and then dust with talcum powder. 
  • Warnings and Disclaimers 
  • Always consult your physician before beginning an exercise program 
  • Can cause serious injury when not used properly 
  • Avoid exercises that involve stretching the Thera-Band resistance bands in such a fashion that they may snap toward the head and cause injury to the head or eyes. If these types of exercises are prescribed, protective eyeware should be worn. 
  • Thera-Band resistance bands are not toys; consult a physician before allowing children to exercise. 
  • If you experience sharp pain, shortness of breath, dizziness or lightheadedness with any of these exercises, stop immediately and contact your healthcare provider. 
  • As with any exercise program, muscle soreness may be experienced over the first few days. If your pain should persist for more than 3 or 4 days, consult your physician or therapist. Do not exercise while experiencing pain. 
  • Be sure the resistance band is securely anchored to a sturdy object or attachment before using. 
  • Do not overstretch the resistance band by more than 3 times its resting length. Example: a 12” (30 cm) band should not be stretched to more than 36” (90 cm) total length. 
  • Protect the Thera-Band resistance band by keeping it away from sharp objects. Remove rings from the fingers before using the resistance bands or tubing. Be aware of long, sharp fingernails.
WHERE DO I BUY YOGA BOXES?
