YOU ARE MORE FLEXIBLE THAN YOU THINK.

  • as if you are stuck in a rigid body because you are just not "naturally" flexible?

  • annoyed by the lasting pain caused by bad posture or bad form and just want to move with ease again?

  • tired of the lack of progress in your sport because you lack the necessary range of motion?

  • discouraged that you cannot keep up with your fellow students in a movement class (dance, yoga, etc.)?

  • frustrated because you have been training your flexibility/mobility forever without seeing real results?

DO YOU FEEL...

  • as if you are stuck in a rigid body because you are just not "naturally" flexible?

  • or like your body has to develop lasting aches simply because you have grown older?

  • annoyed by the lingering pain caused by bad posture or bad form, and just want to move with ease again?

  • tired of the lack of progress in your sport because you lack the necessary range of motion?

  • discouraged that you cannot keep up with your fellow students in a movement class (dance, yoga, etc.)?

  • frustrated because you have been training your flexibility/mobility forever without seeing real results?

NOT ALL IS LOST - YOU CAN FEEL BETTER AND

SEE RESULTS AT ANY AGE AND ANY LEVEL!

WHAT IS FLEXSPACE STUDIOS?

Here at FLEXSPACE, we dream to see a world full of healthy and happy people living at their full potential, freeing their bodies to enjoy all the world can offer, owning their space and expressing their freedom. We believe in wellness through movement - achieved by daring to stretch your body, your mind, and your possibilities. Although the FLEXSPACE method is primarily ballet-based, it incorporates techniques from various schools of movement to help you improve your flexibility and mobility along with your strength. During our 60-min Group Classes, the instructor guides the class through a series of sweat-inducing conditioning and stretching exercises that will help untangle and balance the body.

 

Expect to SWEAT! This is no zen yoga class - you will be expected to work, and work hard. We believe in the importance of active flexibility, which means exercises meant to give you full control over your gradually increasing range of motion... not passively relaxing into deep stretches

Expect to FEEL GOOD! Yes, our classes are challenging - like you would expect any great fitness class to be - however, it will all be worth it when you begin to feel your body re-calibrating itself into a more flexible, more mobile version of itself

Expect to HAVE FUN! We laugh, we cry, we strengthen, we bend - and we all do it together as a team. Our students have helped us form a community, which we know is very special. If you like feeling like you belong, like you are part of something bigger than you - we welcome you to our classes and to our community!

Jemma and Zhana Stretching 2 Other Girls

OUR TEAM

Jemma’s passion for movement and fitness dates back to her very early years. As a graduate of a professional ballet academy, she has dedicated over 20 years of her life exploring the complexities and possibilities of the human body. Years of rigorous training under the world-renowned and strictly codified Vaganova ballet system, combined with her extensive experience in Russian Rhythmic Gymnastics, Yoga, Pilates and other fitness streams has enabled Jemma to create her very own, highly effective training method. Jemma incorporates a clear progression of difficulty in all of her classes, while encouraging students to focus on precise technique, controlled strength and the importance of paying attention to our internal bodily cues. 

Zhana came into the fitness industry in her adult years, which has allowed her to develop an approachable teaching style that focuses on safe and slow progression for those coming in at beginner and intermediate levels of flexibility. As a seasoned pole fitness instructor, she has seen many of her students leverage the benefits of stretching in both their fitness journeys as well as their everyday life, and is committed to encouraging and inspiring members of the larger community to incorporate regular flexibility practices into their own lives as well! She loves helping people use their physical progression to strengthen their minds and help them overcome the challenges they face in their everyday life.

Sasha is a professional contemporary dance artist in Toronto. During her adolescence, she trained as a competitive dancer and gymnast, but discovered her passion for classical ballet and contemporary dance by studying internationally. Her artistic background influenced her in pursuing a contemporary dance career for the past four years. In furthering her education as an artist, she became a freelance contemporary dance teacher as well as a certified yoga instructor. Based on her diverse cross-training and professional experiences, she has developed an artistic and strong anatomical approach to her teaching. Sasha’s classes emphasize a dynamic physical practice that incorporates the connectivity of breath to movement, while including the importance of mental and physical awareness in the body.
