Lastics is a stretching technique born directly from the world of dance that was designed to give people of all ages, body types and fitness levels a way to improve their flexibility based on techniques dancers use to stay lean and limber. The technique teaches you how to articulate your body in ways that elongate your muscles. This is what makes Lastics so different, and it is a difference you will feel immediately.
Unlike methods that rely on external force to push a stretch, Lastics trains your body to move internally to stretch itself. This is how dancers move and it is also the key to their flexibility. They move from the inside first. And now you can too! Not only will it change the way you think about, and understand, your body, but you will also increase your flexibility and improve body awareness through a special mind/muscle connection.
So, join the movement! You’ll move, perform and feel better with muscles that are longer, stronger, more supple and healthy from the inside-out and end-to-end!
"I love Lastics because it takes into account the entire body and not just the part being stretched. It is intelligent stretching that builds strength, alignment and overall movement quality. I do an hour of Lastics and then teach a dance class able to demonstrate choreography free from worry about injury."
Bob Fosse Dancer
"Lastics is a great way to prepare your body for any kind of movement. Within one class I saw a huge improvement in my flexibility, as well as my balance and control. This truly works wonders!"
Billy Elliot on Broadway
“I found muscles that I never felt before and was much more limber than usual afterwards."

"Lastics has been completely new and rewarding experience for the Joffrey Academy students. It has helped them think about using their muscles in different ways in ballet class as it incorporates exercises that both stretch and strengthen muscles."
Academy Artistic Director, Joffrey Chicago
"These exercises actually do what all the other exercises say they do, but really don't. I do a lot of yoga and used to be an athlete. Lastics was the best stretch I've ever had, bar none. You won’t believe how good you feel afterwards."
"It’s definitely a different approach to stretching that works. It released the gripping I’d been feeling for years in my lower and middle back."
