Alixa is a former Rhythmic Gymnastics Trainer at national level and a Contortion Trainer for Circus. She developed her techniques for teaching flexibility after seeing so many gymnasts have to quit the sport from injuries due to improper stretching or lack of stretching. Alixa created her program with a unique blend of non invasive stretching techniques from studies of Russian and Chinese techniques, sports physical therapists, circus, Pilate's, sports doctors, flexibility studies, and working with thousands of athletes from various sports, and she is constantly creating new material!
