Contortionist Workshop with Hannah Finn
Butterfly Fitness Studio, Sheffield
Sunday, 15 Oct 2017
11:30am to 4:45pm
Hannah Finn is a world class contortionist and has been doing crazy bendy things all over the world for the last 12 years. Not only that, she's really, really nice and an excellent instructor - I did her classes a few months ago and cannot recommend her enough! I felt totally safe with her exercises and progressions, and learnt how to do painlessly do stretches that I've always found too painful in the past!
So here are the two classes we're planning - or if you want a private stretch session with Hannah she's available for that too!
