Frequently Asked Questions
FOR ALL CLASSES
Do I Need To Be Flexible To Attend Your Classes?
NO! Our studio is the brainchild of a former sales manager who started stretching in her late 20's with no background in dance or gymnastics. We exist to simply help humans find more freedom in their bodies (and through it, their minds) - no matter where you are in your flexibility/mobility journey.
What Should I Wear?
Any athletic wear will work. We recommend wearing socks (or having a pair nearby) in case you need them for sliding or cushioning purposes
What Should I Have On Hand?
For most stretching classes, the minimum amount of equipment we recommend is:
An exercise mat (or any comfortable surface)
1 x loop elastic band
1 x long non-looped elastic band
2 x exercise blocks (foam preferred)
Drinking water (to stay hydrated)
We also recommend the following tools:
1 x foam roller
1 x fabric sectioned band
You can get all of the required bands at the FLEXSPACE SHOP. We ship worldwide.
If you don't have all of the items for your first class, don't sweat it - we will do our best to improvise and adjust! We do however recommend for you to get the necessary equipment at your first opportunity - your instructor will be happy to discuss the requirements and recommendations with you.
What Is The Minimum Age For Your Classes?
Students must be 14+ for group lessons.
There is no age limit for private lessons, although we see best results in students 12+ as the training is quite rigorous and younger students may not be able to receive its full benefits.
I Have Movement Limitations, Will There Be Modifications Available?
We offer as many modifications as we can within a group or private classes. All new students are required to complete a PAR-Q form. Please list all injuries, conditions, medications, and movement limitations there. We may contact you should we require additional information.
Instructors regularly review PAR-Q information of every single student to ensure a safe and controlled class environment.
Please note if you have a prior injury or condition which has or is limiting your movement, you must receive clearance to exercise from your physio or family doctor. FLEXSPACE classes are not meant to be rehabilitative in nature. You will be pushing your body to explore its boundaries; please first make sure your body is ready to take that on!
FOR PRIVATE CLASSES
Who Will Be My Instructor?
If you already have a preferred instructor, you will be working directly with them (pending availability). If you do not have a preference, we will assign you an instructor depending on factors included your level of experience, your training goals and your availability, amongst others. Don't worry - all of our instructors are qualified to work with a wide range of backgrounds and abilities! That's the FLEXSPACE guarantee.
How Often Will Classes Run?
You will discuss class frequency and schedule all classes directly with your instructor. They will recommend a training schedule depending on your level of experience, your training goals, and your availability, and you can always adjust and modify if you need to make any changes to an existing schedule.
We require a minimum 5 week, 1 x week commitment for private training.
