Farfalla Fitness studio FAQ
Farfalla Fitness studio FAQ
1. What should i wear, what should I Bring and when should I arrive to my first Farfalla Method CLASS at Farfalla Fitness Studio?
For your first ES class, be sure to bring a bottle of water, a towel and a yoga mat. If you don't have these things, no worries, our FFS offer towels, mats and water. And if it's your first time at Farfalla Method, your yoga mat and towel rental are free. Be sure to wear fitted exercise clothes, ideally ones that wick away moisture. First-timers should also get to the studio 15 minutes before class starts to meet your ES instructor and ask any questions. We want to share our one-of-a-kind Flexibility and Strength with everyone, so come to work hard and have fun!

2. How do I sign up for classes ?
At ESM studios, students can reserve classes in advance using our website or mobile app " mindbody " . Classes will have a 'Book' button under the class name on the studio schedule.

3. Is there a good spot to put my Mat if I am attending my first ES class?What help is provided to new student?
A good place to put your yoga mat is in the back of the room, close to a door or sidewall so that you can use other students as a guide while practicing ESMethod. We also encourage you to let the instructor know that it's your first time. They'll happily give you extra guidance and assistance during class to ensure you're practicing flexibility safely.

Have questions? Our FFS instructors love answering questions about Stretching and strengthening or helping students learn more about a specific ES posture. Ask them anything after class, they're thrilled to help.

4. What if I am not that flexible??
FFS actually promotes flexibility. You don't have to be flexible to start doing Farfalla Method. During the workday, much of our activity or, lack there of, shortens muscles. Think about how often you either sit at a desk, in your car or at home. Farfalla METHOD lengthens and expands muscles while helping you release toxins that build up in your body over time. Becoming more flexible is a great benefit of Farfalla METHOD, This gain happens regardless of whether or not you can touch your toes!

5. How often should I practice Farfalla Method?
A successful flexibility practice requires discipline, consistency and commitment. To experience the true benefits of a Farfalla method practice, we recommend practicing flexibility four to six days per week. A practice of two to three days per week, if consistent, will create transformation over time. Develop the spirit of repetition and dedication in your everything is stretchable practice, and you will see results!
About FFS
My name is Iryna Yemengulova. I am a Master in Sports in Rhythmic Gymnastics. I have trained and competed in Ukraine, Bulgaria, and other countries.

Rhythmic Gymnastics requires a lot of body flexibility and control. Some people are born with natural flexibility. Other people, like myself, need to work on developing their body flexibility. In order for me to achieve my goals in Rhythmic Gymnastics sports, I had to work on my flexibility diligently.

In the course of my work, I tried to think, "how can I elevate my flexibility at a greater pace, what does my body need to do in order to become more flexible?" I knew I needed a method to achieve my goals. Every day, I tried different exercises. I put together sequences of moves, continually switching the order to see how my muscles would respond fastest, to give me a better stretch. At some point, I found the ideal combination of total body strength and flexibility movements that led to impressive and rapid improvements in my body. It was so exciting to see my body react so positively! My movements became more graceful, and flawless. I became more supple and agile. I began performing complex elements effortlessly. With my new skills, I felt like I could achieve any goal in Rhythmic Gymnastics. This was how my Method was born. Since then, I have been using this Method every day for the last twenty years to keep myself strong, mobile and injury free.
As I began working in the entertainment world, I introduced my Method to performers, professional athletes, and dancers to improve their overall body function as well as assist them in winning competitions and major show productions. The Method was so highly successful in achieving their goals that I became known as the 'go-to trainer'' in the entertainment industry to transform bodies quickly and importantly, prevent injury.

Seeing the efficiency of my Method in the professional community, I wanted to extend it to a broader audience who need to improve their flexibility and strength in their day to day life. I introduced the Everything Is Stretchable program, using this same Method to enable anyone, of all ages and fitness levels, to greatly improve their flexibility and strength together, to see and feel the same remarkable, body-changing results as my professional athletes, dancers, and myself.

The sequence of movements I personally use is the same sequence I'm bringing to you with the "Everything is Stretchable" Method. These simple, highly effective exercises will not only make you strong and more mobile, you will, feel as I did in a short time, more agile, more comfortable and graceful moving in your body. You will gain confidence and have more energy. The aches and pains accepted as part of daily life will disappear. The Everything Is Stretchable Program can be quickly learned. I've seen my clients have dramatic changes in one to two sessions a week after only one month. It is not magic, though my clients say it is!
