Forever! You have unlimited lifetime access once purchased.
Whatever your age, the answer is NO! The majority of those who train with me are between 20-40, but I have had students in their 50s and 60s who still see great progress.
These programs are designed to be suitable for all levels. They are based on the exercises I would normally give to my contortion students in person, but are modified in a way that makes them approachable for everyone. (This includes specific modifications for exercises that may be too hard/easy upon the first try).
This program comes with a letter from Catie which includes 3 scheduling options. So even with a busy schedule, you can fit in your training! You can choose to do 45-60 minutes 3 days/week, 30-45 minutes 4 days/week, or 15-30 minutes 5 days/week.
Nope! Most exercises require no equipment, but if you have a yoga block and some weights they will come in handy for some exercises. If you don't have either of these things, you can always get creative with household items.
Step 2: Level up
The Personalized Training will give you a customized training plan made by Catie, plus a 1-1 online consult. This is the perfect next step to start focusing on splits and deeper backbending, and work toward those bendy goals in the safest way possible.
The Virtual Workshops are a great way to work on one specific area like square splits, middle splits, upper back, or hip flexors. The workshops are full of necessary information to really understand each area. Plus, there are only 6 students per workshop, so you'll still get lots of personal attention and feedback!
The following steps are perfect if you are...
