Flexxd Pty Ltd
Fiona Goldsmith has taught over 20 years of human movement, learned through yoga teaching, and modified it to include resistance in every stretch. She calls her sessions Flexxd.
Flexxd offers the simple modification of resistance to create a simple but potentially intense workout, equally accessible to chair-based clients, as clients on the yoga mat looking for an improved fitness, flexibility and strength as well as the mindful qualities of yoga.
This program working through 16 muscle groups of the body which prove to correspond to TCM meridians and have physical, mental and emotional balancing effects on the body.
Traditional stretching methods including yoga do not use resistance while stretching and results the build-up of more dense fascia and scar tissue. Fascia depth is increased by repetitive movements or trauma. These results are impairment of circulation, reduced lymphatic flow, restricted movement and often pain.
Fiona has been inspired by Bob Cooley and his Genius of Flexibility program. Bob’s research and ongoing work with resistance stretching and the fascia began 34 years ago while attempting to rehabilitate himself from a tragic pedestrian accident that left him his health compromised and excessively stiff and inflexible. He discovered the necessity to contract and resist while stretching which produces immediate, cumulative, and permanent increases in flexibility and strength. Flexxd is the combination of more than 20 years of working with movement. It’s the best of yoga. It’s stretching with resistance and gaining flexibility safely while building strength on a level I have never seen before. It’s mindfulness in action. It’s breathing with awareness. It’s simple. It’s accessible to average bodies. It’s therapeutic, and it’s also a powerful workout.
Fiona is remarkable! I consistently had a sore hip and an ankle that collapsed at the worst times. Fiona performed a very quick healing on me and my ankle is stable and my hip is improving. A combination of Flexxd and Fiona’s healing is just what the doctor ordered. Thanks Fiona
“I stopped going to gym because I was having too many injuries and my back was feeling compromised. Doing flexxd I have managed my back pain as well as strengthened my body. I feel energized as well as relaxed. I have told many people about the benefits that I have received.”

“After several classes of flexxd, my life has changed dramatically. My Adhesive Capsulitis (Frozen Shoulder) in both shoulders are significantly better and muscles stronger and my energy levels are also significantly higher and in much less pain. I am now far more able to do basic things in my life I couldn’t do before and my children and I are thrilled. I cannot thank Fiona enough and I look forward to every class as ‘me time’ feeling relaxed and rejuvenated after without feeling like I’ve done a full body workout even though I certainly have without the no pain no gain that I’ve always experienced with any other workout and with far quicker results. Flexed is a game changer for all ages that want to keep fit and strong without being strenuous. I adore these classes!”
“It is hard to explain just what a difference this has made to my life and my whole wellbeing. The changes I have experienced are so profoundly positive, from strength and flexibility to clarity and better sleep. The sessions anchor my week and I couldn’t do without it now. Life is just better with Flexxd!”
