Acrobatrix Flexibility Workshop Sep 9
Posted August 6, 2019
This workshop is for people who are passionate about improving their knowledge and body from within a flexibility practice. Leah will be teaching active and passive exercises with a focus on shoulders, hips, bridges, and splits. Through humor, practicality, and efficiency, Leah will take students through a variety of clever stretches, using techniques ranging from Russian, Mongolian, Chinese, and Canadian styles of contortion. Want to understand how to open your shoulders in a bridge? Centimeters away from a full split but you just can't figure out why? Breakthroughs will happen in Leah’s workshops. They always do.

Instructor Leah Rose Orleans is a professional contortionist, circus artist, and coach and staying in New York for August and September! All year long she tours the country teaching and performing contortion and partner acrobatics! She is known in the contortion community for her Instagram tutorials, and is always trying to find a clever and fun way to bring comedy into (sometimes painful) stretching.

Prerequisites: Comfort moving and stretching with ease. Experience in a movement art (dance, aerial, circus, acro, yoga) is recommended.
