We are committed to learning from the best, to help us to continually improve what we offer. This drive, led us to find new ways to develop flexibility. We went searching for talent in this area and found Alixa Sutton.
Alixa is a flexibility expert with many years of experience working with all different types of athletes from across the world, including artistic and rhythmic gymnasts, dancers, synchronized swimmers, trampoline gymnasts, contortionists, ice skaters, circus artists and mountain climbers. She works with all levels of athletes and performers from beginners to Olympic athletes and The Cirque du Soleil. Some of us travelled to the north of England in October to meet and be trained by Alixa.
Andrew, Michael, Katie and Lucy completed and passed Module 2 stretching course in Manchester on Sunday 7 October
Katie, Lucy and Louise completed and passed Module 1 stretching course in Macclesfield on Thursday 5 October.
This training has helped us to redefine the foundational pillars of stretching and will help us to bring our academy members to another level of flexibility.
