Four months from now, you could be more flexible.
Are you ready to leave frustration and stagnation behind?
Have you had enough of stretching and stretching only to wind up in the same place you started?
Have you had that dream at night, where you can effortlessly move your body the way you've always wanted?
I'm Diane Barbeau, a flexibility trainer specializing in working with people to create splits, backbends, and other impressive feats of flexibility.
This goes beyond, "stretching is good for you," (although it is, of course!) and gets into, "this is something I deeply desire for myself" territory.
My clients aren't just relieving stress or loosening up a little. They're crushing their limits and achieving the kind of mobility they've wanted for so long: flatter splits, pain-free backbends, hips that move in mind-boggling directions, etc.
They're being equipped with the mental fortitude they need so that when frustration or the blues inevitably crop up, they move past it and continue their practice.
I am dedicated to creating long-term success for the people I work with, not only because increased flexibility is a game-changer for their bodies, but because it's a complete shift in their quality of life. Armed with confidence, knowledge, and accomplishment, they are able to keep making progress toward their stretch goals even after our time together has been completed, and even when life gets messy (2020, anyone?).
Yes, You Can Do This.
Your body already has the potential and the capacity for becoming bendier.
Whether you've been stuck in place for so long you're starting to think you really can't be more flexible, or you're suffering from information overload thanks to the abundance of freely available information on the web, this training will move you from being in a state of figurative paralysis to making measurable progress.
Where do you envision yourself 16 weeks from now?
Do you see yourself still stuck in the same place... or can you imagine the triumphant celebration in your body and soul from raising your limits and expanding the range of your abilities?
Let's work together to make that celebration a reality.Schedule Your Free Discovery Session Today
Diane doesn't just teach movement and poses, she teaches body awareness. Thanks to Diane's teaching I've been able to learn to listen to my body's signals and to set appropriate limits that push me to improve without risking injury.
Diane takes special care to recognize and celebrate each student's abilities, finding ways that every student can feel accomplished... Diane's teaching style emphasizes the unique vibrancy that comes from celebrating all bodies.
In completing a 6 week flexibility intensive with Diane, I experienced marked improvement in my range of motion and learned valuable skills that have kept me practicing at home. Most importantly, we discussed the mental aspects of keeping myself motivated to keep practicing.
I cannot recommend working with Diane enough!
Diane Barbeau is an exceptional and approachable teacher, with excellent communication skills. She teaches not only the poses and forms, but also the underlying anatomy, how and why the stretch works, and how to build on it for your specific body needs. Diane meets you where you are, tailoring her instruction to your abilities and goals. I highly recommend Diane and her classes.
I began flexibility training with Diane in my mid-twenties and came from a long history of dance and a shorter history of aerial arts.
Until she offered her intensive program, I was convinced my body’s structure was preventing me from increasing my flexibility. Over six weeks, Diane proved me very, very wrong.
She worked with me to establish goals for the program and develop a tailored strengthening and stretching routine and made instruction pages on each exercise to take home with me.
Six weeks later, my splits were lower, my kicks were higher, and my legs and core were stronger!
Diane’s expertise in contortion, anatomy, and yoga practice, and her dedication to each of her students’ progress was the kick in the butt I needed to improve my flexibility, even though I thought I was too old.
