Intro to Contortion (Int/Adv)
In this Intro to Contortion class, students will be taken through oversplits, deep backbending, and contortion inversions, and contortion tricks work. We’ll work on splits and oversplits, drop backs and stand-ups from bridge, all needlescales, chestand, scorpions, prepare for limbers and walkovers, and work progressions for all the above.
Intro to Contortion is different from Active Flexibility in that this class incorporates longer holds and Instructor pushing in flexibility poses while Active Flexibility incorporates more of a focus on strength building for holding flexibility poses.
Pre-req’s: Flat split on the floor on both sides; ability to push up into a full bridge with no support.
*This class is not for beginners. Students are required to come warmed up and ready to work on oversplits before moving on to backbending for most of class*
