What Lysanne has to say about Extensa

I love the balance Extensa brings to my life. While teaching it, I find it so beneficial to myself as well as my participants. It’s a workout but has a calming effect too. It feels good for the body and the mind! Extensa helps maintain my flexibility even as my athlete body begins to age, and I really feel that it has helped prevent injuries throughout my high diving career.
