As New - the original Flexistretcher - bought for £65, selling for £40 WHY FLEXISTRETCHER IS DIFFERENT - Unlike stiff nylon straps or flimsy elastic rubber stretch bands, the Flexistretchers resistance has been measured carefully to provide progressive stimulus to the muscle without sacrificing control. You will not find this combination of stretch and support found in any other product. The unique design allows it to be used in full body stretches such as arabesque but with its full adjustment can be used on smaller body parts such as hamstrings and shoulders. THE FLEXISTRECHER IMPROVES FLEXIBILITY AND STRENGTH - Using the Flexistretcher allows you to simulate specific dance or sport movement and patterns concentrating on improvements in execution and mobility. Utilizing the elastic resistance increases strength in a safe manner. Training with elastic resistance provides resistance throughout the stretch or exercise eliminating the possibility of cheating your way through the movement. HOW TO STRETCH WITH FLEXISTRETCHER - The key to stretching is to engage and active stretch based Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF). The PNF stretching techniques employ the concept that muscle relaxation part of the stretch is fundamental to effectively enhancing flexibility and deepening the stretch. A popular PNF technique is the contract - relax where the muscle is stretched contracted relaxed and then stretched further.by using gravity.
Happy New Year to you all! The online application for MIDAS auditions for 2017 (September start) is now live again via www.midas-dance.org.uk. Students must be year 4 or above (going into year 5 in September). Pupils who are associates of the Royal Ballet School do not need to audition to join MIDAS, but due to a large demand for places all other prospective students must audition.

If you have any questions about the scheme that you cannot find the answer to via a forum search, or on the website then please feel free to PM me.
