“Passing down my Passion for Contortion is my Purpose in life."

Master instructor Hayley Cabral teaches her specialized contortion technique that she has developed after 20 years of performing as a professional hand-balancing contortionist. She blends her extensive knowledge of Mongolian Contortion with Russian hand-balancing, and Rhythmic gymnastics techniques together to create a balanced curriculum of exercises that promote flexibility supported by strength and control.

"I created Flexibility Fitness to pass on my professional knowledge to the next generation of artists. I'm an advocate for mental health, which is why my classes encourage self love and promote a healthy body image to combat the negative culture of body shaming in the arts. Passing down my passion for the art of contortion is my purpose in life.

My professional experience as a touring artist in several different environments has taught me that the most important life lesson contortion teaches kids is to never give up. Acrobatics is a skill that requires athletes to try again and again to achieve results. Kids learn that they can achieve their goals if they stay focused, practice consistently and believe in themselves!"
