Want to become a bendy goddess? Working on your splits & backbends but want to progress faster with expert instruction? Join Las Vegas contortionist & aerialist Anya (@bendyanya) & learn safe & effective techniques.
Really need a kickstart to your flexibility? Have you been working on your splits & backbends but not seeing the progress you had hoped? Well, don’t do it alone! Join us in Bali for a week of intensive flexibility training, catered to your needs. Take a break out of normal life, relax, stretch, and enjoy personalised training with one of the world’s best flexibility instructors!
You’ll return home bendier, armed with the most effective active flexibility techniques to help you achieve your flexibility goals!
“Hi, I’m Anya! I didn’t start flexibility training until I was 22. So I believe if I can achieve such great gains in flexibility (even though it was painfully slow) anyone can. In 2013 I joined Voler: Thieves of Flight, an aerial performance ensemble; travelling, performing and teaching acrobatics. In late 2014 I relocated to Las Vegas to further my career as a performer and coach.
In 2016, I was certified to exclusively teach a newly invented contortion technique founded by Otgo Waller, under the Flexible Body Art training program. This is when I turned my main focus on educating others in their personal flexibility training. After several years of extensive research, studying and physical training experience, I created my own unique program to help others work towards improving endurance, strengthening, and range of motion for developing functional flexibility with the potential of gaining contortion level skills.”
Over the week, you’ll focus on improving your Splits (Front, Middle, Straddle), Backbends, Shoulder Flexibility, all with a focus on active flexibility, rather than passive stretching.
This Retreat is suited to ALL LEVELS of flexibility. For those who are just starting out, you’ll focus on perfecting safe techniques to kick start your flexibility. If you’re more experienced, you’ll be challenged through the advanced level flexibility program, which is also suitable if you’re beginning to practise contortion.
Our Retreat home base is the gorgeous The Island Houses (@theislandhouses) – these beautiful Seminyak villas have to be seen to be believed. Each villa has its own unique, bohemian style, with each room thoughtfully designed to inspire. After your day of workshops, enjoy Island life by the pool, or explore the local cafes and boutiques. Don’t forget you have an in-villa massage included in your retreat package. After every fun-filled day, retire to your luxurious, cosy bedroom with private ensuite.
Pole classes finish in the early afternoon so you have time to explore your island paradise. Relax & enjoy Island Life!
