Donna Flagg

Creator of ‘Lastics’, a technique born directly from the world of dance that releases tension, increases flexibility and stimulates circulation. 

Calling upon her varied experience, Donna designed Lastics to reconstruct the flexibility that dancers have, and from which they all work. It releases tension, increases flexibility and stimulates circulation by teaching people how to articulate their bodies in ways that stretch and elongate muscles from the inside out, and from end-to-end. Not only does flexibility substantially and noticeably improve, Lastics also keeps the body in balance and teaches a unique kind of body awareness and control.
