Strength & Flexibility

Most of us believe that to improve our flexibility we need to stretch, stretch and stretch a little more.

Leaving completely behind the fact that we need a strong structure to sustain that flexibility to do not get injuries and to do not actually be like gum.

Working in the specific strength our muscles need to improve our flexibility doesn’t mean lifting weights.

In my classes, you will learn how to develop strength using your own body weight, the act of gravity and isometric contractions ( when muscle length remains relatively constant as tension is produced.)  And you will learn how your body moves.

This will help you to move better in the trick and poses you learn in the aerial circus acrobatics or pole dance.

But is also fundamental for our daily activities. As we get older we lose connection with our bodies, we lose flexibility and we lose strength.

How many of us start feeling the tightness in our hamstrings with simple moves like tiding the laces of our shoes, or picking up something from the floor 👵🏼

Is never too late to take action and start improving your quality of life

In the month of August, I will be teaching every Monday, specific workshop classes every, to improve your strength, flexibility and mobility.

Do you set your Flexibility goals?

Why is this so important?


Most of the time we set new goals or resolutions like losing weight, stop drinking stop smoking or eating more healthy

All this is fantastic but why do we expect to get more flexible only by stretching more.

We have the wrong idea that by stretching more and harder we’ll see improvements.

First of all, let’s review what does it mean flexibility?


“Flexibility is the range of motion in a joint or group of joints, or the ability to move joints effectively through a complete range of motion.”

Flexibility training includes:

  • Stretching exercises to lengthen the muscles
  • Strengthening exercises to have strong and stable joins that will support that range of motion.

Our flexibility normally varies from one joint to another, ex.; from shoulder to hip.

And for the most part, flexibility is influence by the health and structure of our muscles, tendons and ligaments.

  • Muscles: consist of bundles of long cells, called muscle fibres.
  • Tendons: connective tissue attaching muscle to the bone
  • Ligaments: tissue that connects bones to each other.


Improving your flexibility can help you move more comfortably throughout the day.

If you want to have the quality of movement in the daily activities you need to do something about it.
We are not getting any younger and staying strong flexible and mobile will guarantee a good quality of life as we are in that process of getting”wiser”
This could be anything, from picking up something from the fool without feeling that uncomfortable pain in the back of your knees to being able to do amazing splits in the aerial silks or pole dance.
Whatever it is to make it happen you need to take a few steps and make responsible actions.
  • Focus on one thing at a time and start with something small.
  • Look for an expert in the field you want to work on
  • Look for an accountability partner you will work with
  • Plan it and make it happen 😉

If you would like to get serious about this I have a Free PDF Guided Form to help you set Your Flexibility goals

and this free video class can help as well.

Enjoy it!
